Baby update!

I have had my first OB appointment. I went on Monday. They did an ultrasound so I was able to see the little peanut's heartbeat. Awwww!!! Yes, I did say that. Right after I asked the tech if there was just one in there. LOL The ladies at school had me paranoid about having more than one!! Yeah I was freaked out. Everything looks fine with the baby. The heart rate was 175 beats per minute.

Anyway, they have changed my due date to April 27. Thought it was anywhere from April 15-20. It's no big deal though. If I have this little one on the due date I will have 14 weeks at home before having to go back to work. Chances are though that he/she will come earlier and I'll get even more time at home. Much longer than with the other two kiddos. With Joshua I was home for 7 weeks and with Ari I was home for 9. I kinda like the idea of being home a little longer.

They have me checking my blood sugar already. I have to check it 4 times a day for 2 weeks and then fax the results to my doctor. So far they are looking pretty good. Even after my spaghetti dinner with milk to drink last night my blood sugar was fine. That made me happy. It was a major test. LOL It was kinda high after lunch at school today, but still under what they like. That made me happy. Keep your fingers crossed for me that since this pregnancy has been so different from the other two it will be different in this aspect too.

Hey girl,

What's going on with your blood sugar? Since I know oh so much about being pregers, are they afraid that you may end up with gestational diabetes? Take care of yourself and the "peanut". :)

I have had GD with both the kids. They have me checking it early to catch it early. I'm hoping that this time it will be different.
