32 Weeks!

Today marks week 32, and I'm still pregnant! I had a checkup on Monday; things continue to look good. There are small changes, and the doctor continues to say he doesn't see me going past 34 weeks. I don't know how much faith I have in that statement, but we'll see.

I'm now on medication for the Cholestasis, so hopefully that is going to take care of some of the itching. I've read that Sarna lotion is the best thing to help it, so Todd went out and got some for me last night. $12 for a little 7oz. bottle! We got as far as putting some on my leg, then Todd decided he can't take the smell and quit. Doesn't matter... it didn't seem to do any good as far as I could tell. Oh, well, it was worth a shot.

The doctor decided to raise my insulin level again because my blood sugar continues to rise. He assured me that it is not bad, though, compared to a lot of people, and I shouldn't worry too much about it, and the babies should still be okay. I don't know how diabetics do it; I've only been on the medication for, what, a month now? and I'm already completing sick of the shots!

Lately I've been in a lot of pain/discomfort, so I'm thinking it may be a sign that things should be happening soon, just as the doctors are promising. If you call and I don't answer, it is most likely because I am either sleeping or contracting, or the phone is not close enough to answer. Don't be offended, it's really hard to talk much anyway!

Friday I have my next appointment; we should be finding how Joel and Evan's measurements, so I'll post those as soon as I get a chance.

  1. Hang in there Mama, you are almost there. The birth of your child is probably the most beautiful moment of your life. The bond and overwhelming feeling of love is like no other........and it dosn't go just gets more beautiful and deep with time. My little Lexy grabbed my finger with mighty strength, need and attachment to her little Raquel screamed like a banchee turning bright red.....announcing to the world and to her Mother and Father...I am here.....listen to me now I need and want you!!!!
