Mid-Week Pregnancy Update *Lots to Read*

These past two weeks I have been gone it's been because of a pregnancy scare. EVERYTHING IS OKAY! I'm just paranoid. I do not want this birth to be scary like my first one, so I am trying to take care of myself, but sometimes it's very difficult. So here's a recap of what happened.

Wednesday evening we went out shopping at Babies R Us looking at bouncers for the baby and I noticed that my face was numb and tingly. My husband said it was nothing, but I was freaking out inside! We stopped and had dinner and it was still tingly. I googled it and it said it could be many different things, none of which I thought were good. So I called my doctor the next morning and they said to come in. When I went in, they didn't rush nor ask about my numbness so I brought it up and the doc just said it could be anything and continued with a NST. That got me a bit upset.

So the weekend came around and a friend of mine on facebook who is a OB nurse said that it was probably brought on by stress and I really need to calm down considering my history and everything (I wish she was my doctor). My husband agreed and said that I really do need to take it easy. Starting that weekend I became very SWOLLEN. So I kinda put myself on bed rest, just for a few hours a day. If I got up for like 10 minutes my feet would start to swell up again. We even had a wedding to go to and I was only able to dance one song, and I love dancing! So we left like at 10:30pm.

The doctor had scheduled me to come back in Monday morning for a glucose test and a NST. Even thought I had breakfast, Moyashi didn't want to move, so that put the docs on the fritz for a while and I was there laying on my side for like an hour until she started moving! Then on my glucose test my fasting reading was good but after I ate breakfast it was high so he put me on meds! I take them twice a day and so far they kinda work. This was a different doctor that I saw and I told him about my numbness and he said that he agrees with my friend it was probably brought on by stress and to rest 2hrs twice a day and put my feet up as often as possible. I asked him about traveling and he said NO!

I have only gone to the grocery store once in the past three weeks! I have been sending my husband and it's so hard! I wish I had like a personal shopper, lol. So I have been home, watching my sugar, resting, doing laundry a little bit at a time and now here I am... Saturday morning, BORED! lol

I have another sugar/NST/BBP on Tuesday, so lets see how that goes!
