This morning DH and I saw our midwife. The appointment went really well! My belly is measuring perfectly with how far along I am, and weight gain/vitals/etc. were all great. Eli's heart beat was 160. It was so sweet to hear it again! <3 When our midwife was measuring my belly, she got really excited when she was pushing towards the top and was like FEEL THIS!! So I felt it. . .and I just thought it was the top of my uterus because it felt like a bump. . .but she said it was his feet. She was so excited which made me really excited! haha I really adore her. . .she is such an amazing women and makes us feel so good whenever we see her. I know she truly cares about us and our baby and she has a wonderful, sweet spirit.
I go back September 13th and I have to take the GD test! She also told me that I can fast if I want, but I definitely don't have to. I'm just not supposed to eat/drink anything sugary or full of carbs if I do. . .she said to eat something high in protein. So now I'm on the fence. . .my appointment is at 11 am so I know I won't be able to eat until after 12. . .which for me would be super hard. I usually eat pretty soon after I wake up in the morning. I'm kind of tempted to call back and change my appointment to 8 am if I can. . .but I know it would be harder for DH to make the appointment at that time. But anyways I thought I would just share an update. . .I'm so thankful Elijah and I are so healthy! God is so good!
Oh yeah, and she isn't concerned about my fainting issue. She said it's normal and since it happens an hour after I eat it's probably all the blood/nutrients/glucose [or whatever] going to the baby which leaves me feeling very faint. I will just have to be really careful!
