Ok, I moved the monthly pregnancy post up a little bit this month because…
a) the doctor moved my due date to from February 18th to February 15th (like it really matters at this point….)
b) WE HAVE A C-SECTION DATE!!! If I make it that far (and I think that’s a big if at this point), Jackson will be born February 9th.
So I wanted to make sure I fit in the last two monthly posts if at all possible. Crazy to think we’re in the last month of this pregnancy!
Here’s what’s going on with Jackson and Mommy at 8 months.
If this tells you anything, the first words out of my doctor’s mouth after measuring my tummy Wednesday were “now how big was your first baby?” He wouldn’t even tell me how big I was (I believe his exact words were, “don’t worry, you’re there”). Even though I haven’t had an ultrasound since 28 weeks, my belly has consistently measured 3-4 weeks ahead, so I’d go on and guess he’s whatever a baby at around 38-39 weeks is measuring.
So I don’t know if I mentioned it…I failed my first glucose test. My doctor ran an A1C test on me a few weeks ago, and I did well on that, but he still has me on a low-carb diet, just as a precaution, since everything is measuring so big. I’ve had to really limit my carbs for the past two weeks, which is pretty tough for me during pregnancy…that’s what I usually live on. I’m not as strict as somebody that’s full-on diabetic (no blood draws or strict carb counting), but I have to be careful. So really no sweets and limited bread, pasta, potatoes.
So I basically want to take a bath in chocolate sauce right now. And I just might once I get this baby out.
And I don’t know if this counts as a craving, but I’ve been drinking lots of lots of water. It really seems to keep the contractions at bay and just generally makes me feel better!
Comparing this pregnancy to Emmie’s (here’s my post with her at about the same time)…
