23 Weeks

The past two weeks have been full of doctors appointments (which are going to be the norm).  I thought I'd give an update as to how the pregnancy is going.

Last week consisted of the OB and Endocronologist.  The OB said that everything is measuring fine and that on the next visit we would start discussing pre-term labor and get a plan together. The endo visit went just as well.  My A1C count was 5.9.  Yipee!  They were very excited about that.  We made a few adjustments to my insulin but for the most part, it stayed the same.   She said that I would start making more changes once I hit the 26-38 week point.  

This Monday we went to get another sonogram to make sure that she's growing and everything looks healthy.  He said that she looks great.  She weighs 1 lb 5 ounces.  She opened her mouth a few times while we were looking at her.  She was very active and moved around the entire time.  
We go back again to all of the doctors on February 2nd, so I'll give everyone an update.  We're actually going to have a 3D sonogram done, so we'll be able to see her little features.  The big question is....who's nose will she have?  

It's amazing how time has flown by.  As every woman has told me, it's the last 3 months that are the hardest.  I'll continue to say a little prayer and keep a smile on my face.
Thank you to everyone for your continued support and prayers.
