Weight Gain Update
I had my 28 week appointment this last week. This is the appointment where you drink the super-sweet orange glucose drink so that you can get your arm pricked for the gestational diabetes test. Funny enough, that isn’t what I was most worried about. It was, for me, the dreaded step onto the scale.
As you may remember, I gained 8 pounds in the previous month and got a ‘talking to’ from my OB. I didn’t feel like I ate too unhealthy this past month but I continue to crave baked goods so I wasn’t going to be too surprised if I had at least a 4-pound weight gain.
The nurse weighed me, and took the note. I didn’t remember what I weighed last time so I needed to wait for the doctor to discuss with me. My OB looks down and then up and me and says, “ok, you gained 1-pound this month,” and that was all she said! I was expecting some praise or critisism for gaining too little but that’s all I got.
I looked into a pregnancy journal I kept when I was pregnant with Brett and I actually weighed 3-pounds more and this point in the pregnancy with her than I am now!
So, there it is – at 28 weeks I’m up 21 pounds. Next appointment October 7th.
