7 Months

Here I am at 7 months along or 28 weeks 2 days. I thought that some of you would like to see what the belly looks like with out being covered. Enjoy! Riley is still being very active. Now she is moving more during the day but still lots of movement at night.
Got a call from the doctor today letting me know that my 3 hour glucose test came back fine. So after starving myself and Riley and sitting in a doctors office for 3 hours everything ended up coming back negative. I'm glad that I don't have to do that again!
Our next appointment is on March 3rd.

Doctor Called About Test Results

The doctor called this morning to let me know that my iron is a little low. It should be 11.5 and I am 11.0 so now I have to take an iron supplement. No big deal most pregnant women end up having low iron. The doctor also told me that my glucose test came back and now I have to have the 3 hour test. The cut off percentage is 135 and of course I was 137. I scheduled my 3 hour glucose test for Monday February 9th. I have to be at the doctors office by 8am to get my first round of blood drawn. Then I get to drink that glucose drink and then they take my blood 3 more times. Pretty much I am going to be a pin cushion that day and be starved.

7th Doctors Appointment

Today was the day that I had to get my 1 hour glucose test. They are looking to see if my iron is okay and to see if I have developed diabetes. I will know something in a day or two. Hopefully everything comes back okay that way I wont have to go back for the 3 hour glucose test.

Riley is still active as ever. I asked the doctor how she is positioned inside my tummy and she said that Riley is laying horizontal. The doctor also measured my stomach and I am 28 cm which she said is good. I weigh a lovely 150 pounds! That means in the 6 1/2 months that I have been pregnant that I have gained a whopping 25 pounds. Can't wait to see how much more I gain
