I am at the 33 week point, and due to a few "minor" problems and AMA, I am now having an ultrasound every week. That is cool with me - I like seeing the bean regularly and the Canadian system provides these with no charge to me. Yahoo!
For those who don't know, I had an incident in August where I lost a substantial amount of amniotic fluid. It seems to be rebounding now, but it is still on the low side of normal. Nonetheless, in the normal range is good... considering that I lost quite a bit all of a sudden. Amnio is important for the baby's development and also a certain amount is required for him to turn. He has been firmly sitting in breech... but now seems to be edging downward, hopefully to the correct position ultimately.
I have also been having a bit of trouble with blood sugar, and having failed the Trutol test and partly failing the Gestational Diabetes testing - I have been diagnosed with pregnancy-related Impaired Glucose Tolerance. This is being totally taken care of through minor changes in diet, mostly relating to timing of meals and snacks and food combining. I saw a dietitian (without a lot of guidance) and then sought out on my own a Holistic Nutritionist. Together, the blood sugar issue is no more.
I have been reluctant to post about problems... as I don't want to be complaining about the very thing we all want so badly. But now that the "dangers" seem to have passed (P&PT for that!) I wanted you to know that even with the challenges I've been facing, the pregnancy is still on track and something I am totally committed to.
I had one of my weekly U/S today and everything looks good (apart from lower amnio than optimal), all measurements are on track and I am feeling great.
I just wanted to share!
