Happy Monday! This past week was pretty uneventful (thankfully!!). We had our weekly doctor’s appointment with the perinatologist last Tuesday and my cervix is stable and all is well!! Then on Thursday I had a doctor’s appointment with my OB, and I was measuring exactly 29 weeks! Then on Friday I went back in and got a Rhogam shot (because I have a negative blood type) and my Tdap vaccine. It was a big week! haha Oh, by the way for those who have been asking, I do NOT have gestational diabetes! Woohoo! I passed the three hour test! I failed only one of the four draws, and you have to fail two to be diagnosed with GD so I am officially in the clear! My doctor even flat out told me I could have a donut, just not too many. haha Music to my ears! Donuts are my BIGGEST weakness.
My mom has been staying with us to help me while Ben was at work this past week. Since I was in the hospital we just didn’t want me to be home alone. She has been such a huge help!! She even painted my toe nails for me since I can’t reach them any more and I can’t go get a pedicure because, well, bedrest. So sweet of her!
She has also been helping us pack because WE ARE MOVING BACK TO WASHINGTON! Yep, Ben got a transfer with work and we are heading back to WA! My doctor gave me the go ahead to fly and said to GO NOW while I’m so stable! So, I’m flying up with my mom on Wednesday!! Day after tomorrow, oh my goodness! Ben has to finish out the week at work and then he is driving up! It’s all happening so fast, but we are so excited to be moving! It will be so nice to have our little boy be born near family and friends!
Anyways, all is well! Prayers and good vibes for a safe move, please!! :) 30 weeks tomorrow...YAY!
