It's been a while since I've been on here, but wanted to check in again! I'm 33 wks and 5 days today! We had an ultrasound this morning and the baby is doing well. We got to see the little peanut practice breathing and stick his/her tongue out!! It was amazing!
My last A1C (about 2 wks ago) was 5.5 so I was pretty happy with that. My previous two A1C's were in the low 6's.
Anyway... I'm curious to know what other people experienced when they got closer to their due date and the baby's size. Our baby was measuring in the 50-55% range (not too big/not too small) up until today's appointment.... and now the ultrasound is calculating that the baby is at 76% (almost 6 lbs already!). So it seems as though the weight gain over the past ~4.5 weeks must be a lot more than average... Did other people experience this? If so, did it keep up until you delivered or did the weight gain kind of level off to the more normal range? I'm just nervous about how big the baby is going to get since he/she doubled their weigh in the last 33 days! Yikes! Let me know if you have any advice on how to keep the weight gain normal... My insulin requirements have gone up a lot in the last 2 months... so I'm sure that isn't helping either.
Hope everyone is doing great!
