PREGNANCY – WEEK BY WEEK #29

And another week has passed by with not the best knows ever, but nothing to really get worried about…I do have gestational diabetes after all! How enjoying… That’s what I think about it. It’s enjoying as I love to eat and now I need to make sure I don’t eat sugar or ‘white’ flour…so no cookies, chocolate, ice cream or…PIZZA! HELP!! That’s the biggest punishment to be honest. But hey, it’s only for another 11 weeks (more or less) so of course I’m sticking to the diet. It’s not the end of the world of course 😉
Best part this past week: Seeing my niece and nephew again 😀

How far along? 29 weeks and 2 days
How many echoes until now? 7 (week 7, week 10, week 12,5, week 15,5, week 17,5, week 19,5, week 23,5)
Expected date of delivery? October 24
Total weight gain? still 6 kilo / 13,2 pounds (eliminating sugar helps 😉 )
Gender? Boy
Name? No, not yet
Belly button in/out? In
Stretch marks? no
Sleep? Sleeping pretty good.
Typical pregnancy symptoms? I need to slow down with everything (not used to it) and my memory still isn’t the best lately.
Maternity clothes? yep.
Food cravings? As I can’t have sugar I’m craving anything sweet…
How to keep fit? A few days walking. Unfortunately no swimming this week. The pool is closed and I haven’t been able to go to the outdoor pool. Not so sporty this week…
Baby’s room? The furniture is all set in the baby’s room. I love it!
Baby’s gifts? Adorable baby booties from a colleague.
Surprises during pregnancy? the gestational diabetes 🙁 Thursday I have again an appointment with the diabetologist. Hopefully he just wants me to follow a diet and that’s it. We’ll see. And I will let you know in the pregnancy update next week.
