Miracle Diet!

Friday's doctor visit was good. Both babies have strong heart rates and movement and there's plenty of amniotic fluid, etc.

I, on the other hand, somehow lost 4 lbs. in one week. My endocrinologist (gestational diabetes doctor) warned this could happen with GD. Clearly I've been eating plenty of food, but for some reason the diabetes is not letting me store the nutrients.

Prior to the weight loss, all my doctors were pushing me to schedule a c-section for 38 weeks, instead of 39 or 40 weeks. I was struggling with their logic (there was none given). However, now that my weight is an issue, I'm more comfortable agreeing to a scheduled c-section at 38 weeks.

If you've been keeping up with this pregnancy then you know 38 weeks is this Wednesday (care to guess when I'm having the c-section?). Yup, you guessed right . . . Wednesday. The extraction of my children will be Wednesday morning.

I have another BPP and pre-op appointment scheduled today with the ob/gyn. Let the countdown begin!

Happy early B-day to your babies!! I must say, I'm a little bummed that this will be the end of the pregnancy journal. I have loved reading your unique and entertaining view of the world. You truly should be a writer. Hopefully you'll have a few minutes to begin the new blog journey of Dave + Emily = 2 BEAUTIFUL babies. CONGRATS to you both!!!
