The Frankenbaby Chronicles

Two girls, three cats, some frozen sperm, a doctor's office, and a big dream.

A little update

Hello, friends!

Well, we have made it to 25 weeks and every week it is the same - I am shocked and amazed that we have gotten this far. Our TTC journey and first trimester heartache are still both so fresh in my mind and sometimes when I fall into feeling like I'm just having a normal old pregnancy I totally shock myself!

We spent four days in sunny Florida visiting Jen's parents and I enjoyed some soaks in the pool, some nice work-free days, and a really nice stroll on a hot beach. It was nice to bust out the summer clothes and the sandals for a couple of days, and we enjoyed and celebrated the fact that I am really starting to look pregnant.

Of course this comes at a cost, and that cost is rapid weight gain. I don't know if it's at all normal but I think I gained 5lbs at vacation alone. I know it's not the best eating situation when you are on vacation and I'm sure I ate far too much junk and snacks, but I am nervous. I have my Glucose Screen coming up and ever since I really started putting on weight (6lbs last month, this month TBD) I have been worried that I am skimming the edge of GD, especially since I was insulin resistant BEFORE I got pregnant. I am trying not to worry too much and think that if it happens, it happens, but then I come home and step on the scale and see a big jump and think, "Oh here we go."

Otherwise everything has been great! Ditching the snoogle has eliminated the nighttime sciatic pain (even though it is a waste of money), I haven't had as much pelvic pain lately and enjoyed a nice stroll on the beach, and I've been feeling good. I know that the third trimester is right around the corner (what a head trip to be able to say that!) and the discomforts will begin... but I am trying not to worry about things like pre-eclampsia or any big complications before they come up. I need to keep reminding myself that I am a healthy girl and my body can totally do this!

I hope everything's going well in your worlds.
