Baby Beanie is officially the size of a squash now.
At my last gynae appointment, he was measuring 3 days in advance and was 1.4kg and 35cm. :) Gynae said that everything looks great and I'm pleased to announce that after all my eating and stuffing myself in Singapore, I only gained 2 kg in 5 weeks! That makes my overall weight gain at 8 kg so far. I think that's a pretty good progress.
My next obstacle to overcome is my gestational diabeties test tomorrow. Hmmm. I'm not entirely looking forward to it but its one of the things that I have to do because of my PCOS and insulin resistance. Going to trust and pray that everything will turn out just fine and I do not have to go on a sugar-free diet for the remaining weeks of my pregnancy.
How I feel now?
Well, I've been getting tired more often and easily. Usually I try to sleep on my sides but over the past few nights, I've been so knocked out that I ended up sleeping on my back. This meant that all that extra 8kg of weight was pressed on my back / spine throughout the night! As a result, I end up with the stiffest back ever and have to do some back exercises to ease the discomfort.
Other than that, I'm feeling pretty good and its been superb feeling the little one kicking and jumping around. Ok, I can't tell the difference between the various movements, but they are definitely more human-like and less random now.
Quite hard to grasp the fact that in about 11 weeks, we'll be holding our little one in our arms! :)
