I bought some maternity clothes on Sun and am going nuts trying to hold off on wearing them. My pants are so uncomfortable, I've been wearing pajama pants all day! I was feeling bad already having a bump thinking I'm just gaining too much weight because the uterus isn't supposed to pop above the pubic bone until 12 weeks. Well the tech had the ultrasound wand pretty high up on my tummy and I asked did it go up that high. She says "your uterus goes all the way up to here" just a couple inches below my bellow button. So that made me feel better. That's around where it would typically be for 16 weeks if I'm remembering right. They say you show earlier with each pregnancy and I guess my body just remembered.
Blood sugars are a little better. I reduced my basals what with running low constantly and started running high all day so increased by .5 and have been doing better. Still more lows than I would like, but can't adjust by more than .5 so I guess I'd rather be lower than higher. Just got a phone call from the peri and they somehow got Tricare to approve an Endocrinologist in Savannah! I have been trying to accomplish this for 5 years and was never able to. That will be MUCH easier than driving to Augusta. Good week!
