My OB gave me all kinds of loving for only gaining 13lbs so far. I have zero idea how that happened. I eat like a horse all day every day. I told her that I deserve no credit. She didn't care, she was just glad.
Stunning to me is that I am NOT gestationally diabetic. I have not been before, but I just felt like this time was my turn. I am older and have a history of a previously large for gestational age baby. But I dodged the bullet. I was pretty afraid about giving up my Qdoba habit.
I still have not had issues with morning sickness. I keep waiting for it to hit me, but I feel like if I made it this long I should be pretty good. I am walking fine with little to no hip pain. I do the best if I work in the ED were I walk all day long. Sitting in NICU makes my hips get sore. I really have had my least complex pregnancy ever, and for that I am very grateful. But - I still have this strong pull/calling that it is time to stop. Time to count my blessings and focus on what I have. I can't ever commit to such a thing, but I for the first time in my life I finally have that "its time to stop having babies" feeling that I never could understand in other people.
But for now I am going to revel in this little baby kicking me and try to enjoy the rest of the ride.
More recent update: I got the stomach flu and ended up having to spend a few hours in triage to get some IV fluids. It's amazing what some IV nausea meds and LR can do to get you right back on track.
