I had a doctor's appointment yesterday and all went well. The results came in for my gestational diabetes test and I was negative. I wasn't really too worried about it, but I was still glad when he said that everything was fine. I am still slightly anemic (even though I'm taking an iron supplement) but my iron count hasn't gotten any lower either so he said not to worry about it. I'm also measuring right on target and he (the doctor) didn't gripe about my weight.
I've never had to "manage" my weight before so this is something that I've had to get used to. Well, now that I think about it I did try to stay under a certain weight in college one semester while I was in a strength training class but that was only to avoid having to lift heavier weights for the test! Anyway, where was I? Oh, I'm blessed with a good metabolism (thanks mom and dad) and since I'm tall there are lots of places for my weight to spread out. Having said all this, I am a bit concerned that I've already gained about 30 lbs and the baby is just now starting to put on all of her weight!! Everybody keeps saying not to worry about it and that I'll "bounce" back to my old self after the baby. I just love that word...bounce...makes it sound so easy! But alas, Koby always eases my worries. He's been a constant encouragement and reminds me that as long as I, and the baby are healthy that it doesn't matter what the scale says. He says I'm more beautiful than I've ever been and I love when I catch him staring at my belly! I really need to be more disciplined when it comes to walking and eating right though. It's just so much easier to come home after work and lounge around. Who wants to get out and get all sweaty anyway?
I decided that I'm going to add a little "what I'm excited about" section to the end of my blogs. I tend to get caught up worrying about the little things so maybe this will help me focus on the positive things too.
What I'm ExCiTeD about...
My friend JJ from Dallas is coming to visit me tomorrow. I haven't seen her since her b-day in mid-December so I know we will have fun catching up and we are going to do some shopping!! I can't wait!
