We are currently in Mississippi, visiting with the Herschede's (and Johnston's). The trip up went pretty well. The kids have had a fun time swimming, seeing their cousins and spending time with Grandma and Grandpa. Matt has been able to spend some quality gaming time with his dad. :) The kids, Ree and I went baby shopping in Columbus today. We were looking for a bassinet, which we did not find, but I did find some adorable outfits for baby. I want to find one similar to the one pictured for the going home outfit (this one is size 6 months).
My next appointment is on the 17th, and I'll be having a growth ultrasound. Can't wait to see baby! I'm hoping they do 3d again this time. They'll also be starting the weekly non-stress tests and biophysical profiles. On the 20th I go for a re-check on the fetal echo to check baby's heart.
The insulin resistance has really kicked in as I was expecting it to. I've had to increase my basals as well as dropping my insulin to carb ratio (down to 1:3 eek!) and my correction factor. I'm still keeping my carbs fairly low though I have added in milk and fruit. Limiting carbs is making a huge difference this pregnancy as far as my meal doses. With the last two I had to take massive doses to cover my carbs and this really helps. After a couple days of nasty numbers, I am back in the "normal" range.
