I am 6months and 1 week today!! and....

Well, I apparently failed my 1 hour glucose test.,. The numbers were 149. The doc said it wasnt terribly high, and didnt necessiarily mean that I had diabetes. So I have to go and take my 3 hour test next week. I am a little worried, but I knew that I would have it. Only because one, my grandmother was full blown, developed later on in years, my mom, had borderline with me, and she wasnt the weight I am. Anyway, I knew that I was destoned to get it. I have been feeling her move like crazy, sometimes she can really kick me hard. But it doesnt hurt that bad, just uncomfortable. I am worried about birthing again. I suppose its natural, but my biggest fear is dieing. I dont want to die. I dont know how I can make this clear. My hypertension has been kept under control, and at a good rate, as well as my heart rate, which is about 85 to 95 at times, when I dont stay hydrated then it goes up to about 115. So I am constantly drinking water. My bp has been ranging from 130/73 to 120/80, so its good. As long as I dont see 150/100 ever again. The baby, is hiding gender, still, even after the 2nd ultrasound. She, ( I will call her she because that is what the docs are leaning towards), weighs 2lbs and is about a foot long, and is so beautiful.

Anyway, I figured that I will keep everyone posted on my progress, and I hope that all you other mommies out there are having a healthy stress free pregnancy!! Take care.

I just wanted to let you know something dragon. ANYBODY, when dehydrated will probably get an increased heart rate. It is the body's way of compensating. I don't think your increased heart rate when dehydrated has anything to do with pregnancy or weight. Although, when you are overweight you are at a higher risk for high rate anyway. I know when I was over 300 pounds, my heart rate stayed over 100 most of the time.

Good to hear from you again DragonsBeauty! I was wondering about your second ultrasound, I remembered it was in January. Are you going to go ahead and buy girl things or are you going to wait? Stay healthy and warm and I hope all is going well with you!

Well, my mom bought a outfit for each.. which to be honest is ok because I can use them both. As for me, I dont know what to do. There are a lot of little girl things that I really want to get her. And then again there is a theme that can be used for any gender, which involves frogs. Its really cute. Its green so its quite universal. But, I really dont know what I can do. I would really like to know what I will be having. I want a definate answer!! Teehee. But none the less I will love which ever I have regardless.

I have a 3rd ultrasound in Feb. Well towards the end of feb. So maybe we can get a good profile then. Fingers crossed.

Re: I am 6months and 1 week today!! and....

We must have almost the same due date!

My doc(s) did my glucose test a few months ago. I failed the first time but passed the 3 hour test, so just wait and see. You may be fine.

Also, my heart rate increased to 95-100 bpm. I told my doctor and he said it's because of the increase of blood volume. I even hear my heart beat in my ear!

You are so lucky that they do so many ultra-sounds!

Take Care.
