Body Changes: I only gained 1 lb this week, and I’m off to take the glucose tolerance test tomorrow, so I’m hopeful I’m back on track to normal weight gain and a healthy pregnancy! We will see how I do, insulin resistance makes everything a gamble, but this healthy week has been very encouraging!
I’m still having some feet swelling even with trying to drink lemonade and get in plenty of walks. Nothing too alarming, but it’s definitely not fun to realize you only have so many shoes, and your body really likes the ones with the most padding. I’ve had aching feet this week while we’ve shopped for refrigerators, and that’s been a new thing to feel worn out after a shopping trip.
Baby Updates: He’s getting hiccups regularly. I kept feeling like he was tickling me from the inside, and then learned that this is what hiccups feel like. He has them often, and it’s kind of fun to feel them!
Just when I think he can’t get more active, he always seems to! I can feel him sleeping and awake at more regular times each day, apparently he’s already setting a schedule! When he’s awake, oh my, this kid is insane! We’re going to have a busy one on our hands, and I’m actually super happy about this! We have big dreams of traveling, having family dates, and keeping up our hyper lifestyle the best we can with baby, and if gestation is any sign, we’re definitely getting another energetic, excited about life Whiting to add to our family!
