I was supposed to have a 26+1 day OB appointment and glucose tolerance test, but the beautiful snow caused the office to reschedule me a week later.
So yesterday I went in and drank the flat, syrupy, orange flavored drink and had an appointment. I was so relieved that I had only (ha! ONLY) gained 9lbs over the last 5 weeks. I was thinking it would be more like 13lbs!! Yikes! My OB was completely unphased by 9lbs and said I was "doing great"! Overall, I am up 24lbs at 27 weeks. Blood pressure was normal, stomach is measuring right on track. They drew my blood an hour after drinking the glucose drink and hopefully they will call me with the results...I forgot to ask! I have one more appointment that is 4 weeks away, and after that I go 2 weeks, 2 weeks and then 1, 1, 1 until baby is born!
As far as aches and pains go, I still have the numbness/tingling/pins and needles feeling in my left leg only. Doctor says it is baby's position on a nerve...and I've basically gotten used to it. It is constant, but sometimes more irritating than others. Also as of yesterday, I've developed a lower back pain which again, is not very painful, just a little uncomfortable and irritating....it feels more like an "old person" back pain. I keep reminding myself that I AM five years older than when I last experienced being this far along in a pregnancy.
Rob and I are in the process of looking at (and differing over!) paint colors for the baby's room. We have very different ideas of what this room should look like! LOL! I went into hyper-nesting mode on Sunday and about drove him crazy. He was driving me a little crazy too....I kept sending him "away" and then calling him back only to say, "Why aren't you helping me with this?" Yes, pregnancy can do strange things to you. But seriously, there are only 3 months left until this baby is due and I've got to get on the ball!!
