Interesting tidbit: this day last pregnancy I had a scan. A&P were measuring around 2 1/2lbs each... Crazy to think that's what this little one is at, if not a teeny bit bigger!

Got the call today that I failed my 1hr glucose test. I'm a little worried about it, since I have sugar issues in the first place, and I've never failed it before-not even with A&P where I was more likely to have GD with a multiples pregnancy. I go for my 3 hour on the 6th so here's hoping it'll go well!

Doc appointment today went well! My weight gain on their scale is 9lbs, not 6-still insanely low but the doc wasn't concerned-actually happy. Heartbeat was at 146, and I'm pretty sure baby has flipped back head down again because of where I feel hiccups. (Woohoo! Just stay there babylove.) I'm measuring 28w but between the fact that my uterus housed twins last time and I started off with extra weight anyways it doesn't surprise me.

Placenta is officially far enough away to be cleared of any issues-so I'm happy. I had my glucose test this morning before my appointment so I'll find out the results of that soon, but I'm guessing it'll be ok as pregnancy usually just evens it out for me. I go back in 4 weeks-crazy that we are getting to the "closer together" appointments!

So I woke up this morning in the third trimester. Whaaaa?! How this happened I have no clue... But we are here.

Very fortunately the only woes of pregnancy that I am experiencing is sciatic nerve pain, which has been horribly bad the last two times too, and my strange lack of appetite. It's such work to eat. I've finally started gaining-6 pounds now I think-whereas at this point with Maya I had gained 19 and with Ava & Patrick I had gained 28. Whoops! Pretty sure baby is growing just fine so that's what matters.

Baby has been head down lately-I can tell because of where I feel hiccups. Much to my dismay today I could feel them over my left hip... Nooo! Now I can clearly feel the transverse position because of where kicks are. Baby better enjoy flipping around now because its going to be time to get serious soon!

First of all-how in the world is it 15w until my due date?! This is going to fly by!

It's 2am. There's a major party going on in my belly. This child will be remembered as the wiggly one for sure-I love it, but holy cow! A lot of it has to do with the placenta placement, so I can feel pretty much everything. Seriously, it's constant!

Maya can feel baby kicking quite a bit too which is neat for her (and for me-I love that she's so excited and so involved).
