Starting Trimester Number Three
I'm finishing up week 27 of pregnancy and heading into week 28 this week so I think that technically puts me in the downhill stretch of trimester number three. I had a doctor's appointment today which included the blood glucose test for gestational diabetes. Seeing as I was overweight (actually in the obese category if you follow any of the online charts which I think is totally bonkers), maintaining a healthy pregnancy has been something I have been a bit concerned about. That said, my blood pressure has been great thus far (a little high on my previous visit but my doctor said it was only high for me not something to be concerned about) and I passed the glucose test today easily. My weight gain has been minimal; I don't think I've hit 15 pounds yet. So a big yeah for things going well.
