After I had this tasty little cocktail I finished getting ready and headed to the clinic. At 11 o'clock they drew my blood at the lab and then I headed down the hall to see my OBGYN for my prenatal check-up. All-in-all the appointment went great. My blood work results came back and I tested negative for gestational diabetes. My doctor listened to the baby's heartbeat and it was beating at a healthy 147 beats per minute.
I discussed my weight gain with my doctor today. I told her I was concerned with how much I had gained at this point compared to my first pregnancy. With Mollie I gained a total of 35 pounds and right now I still have 12 weeks to go and I have already gained 30 pounds. I was definitely more active during my first pregnancy so that makes a difference. I have been completely inactive the past couple of months due to health reasons but now that I have had the surgery done and I am on the road to recovery I think things will start to level out and get back on a healthy track. My doctor told me it was good that I was aware of my weight gain and that I just need to make an effort to eat healthy and start walking once I am completely healed up.
I found a great website that gives pregnant women an idea of where they should be as far as weight gain goes during pregnancy.

It's hard to believe that I am in my THIRD trimester already! When my doctor told me I would be coming back every two weeks from now on it really hit me. We are getting so close to meeting our baby boy!
Baby Bump - 28 Weeks
This afternoon as I was sitting at my computer catching up on some work emails there was a knock at the door. I usually do not answer the door when I am home by myself (I'm just wierd like that). For some reason I decided to check out who it was and I'm so glad I did. It was a lady delivering flowers that Jason had got for me from him and Mollie for Mother's Day. It made me smile from ear to ear. I wasn't expecting that at all and it completely made my day!
I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend and Happy Mother's Day to all the special Mommy's out there!!
