34+1 Weeks

Just realized I completely spaced the 33 week update…blame it on COVID-19. I’m in a constant state of discombobulation these days

Blood sugars are still great and easy to control. I was happy to hear that my OB’s protocol has changed since the last time I had GD and as long as my numbers are good I don’t have to have weekly or twice a week non-stress tests. She said they would probably do one when I’m in the office for my 36 week appointment and maybe another one before the end.

Speaking of the end…we have an induction date set! I’ll be showing up at the hospital at 7:15am on June 6th! I’ll be 39+2. I’m really happy with this plan as I feel like she might be a bigger baby so doing in a few days earlier than planned is great.

I have an ultrasound scheduled for next week just to check on her growth. I’m curious to see how big she’s measuring and if I’m just imagining she’s big or if she actually is on the big side.

Weekly Update:

How far along: 34+1 weeks

How big is baby: size of a savoy cabbage, about 18 inches long and around 5lbs

Symptoms: Still having Braxton Hicks, mostly in the evening. I also get cramps in the evening as well, but they aren’t awful. Heartburn as improved since I got some Pepcid AC to take…makes a huge difference

Movement: still very active. Her bum is set up under my right ribs. When I sit down I have to either lean back or push her butt down which she sometimes protests against

Sleep: Not terrible, but sometimes if I wake up I can’t get back to sleep which can be very frustrating.

Food cravings? chicken sandwiches (like breaded chicken patty on a bun), strawberries w/ pound cake, hamburgers

Anything making you queasy or sick? not really

Next appointment: ultrasound on 5/6, video appt on 5/14, in office appt on 5/19
