Oops. I forgot to post my 30 week update last week. That’s okay. This will be a short post!
My mom’s dog, Cody, stayed with us recently so we took the dogs down to the pond to enjoy the gorgeous fall day. It was great exercise for all of us. I’ve been trying to make it a habit to walk more, even if it’s just a little bit, because I have heard that it will make the rest of my pregnancy (and hopefully labor) go by a bit easier.
Robb and I took a short trip down to Edenton last Saturday. I wanted to stop to the farmer’s market to say hello to some of my fellow sellers and to show off my baby bump since I haven’t seen them at all this market season. I decided early on in my pregnancy to cut down on any vendor events and shows this year to give my body the opportunity to rest on the weekends.
I also wanted to snag a couple of pictures of myself at the waterfront. 🙂
I also had my 30 week doctor’s appointment last week. Everything went well. Lil Bean’s heart-rate had slowed but that seems to be normal for the third trimester. I hadn’t gained any weight since my previous appointment – two week’s prior – but that didn’t seem to alarm my doctor as I told her that I have made some diet changes. My glucose test was a little on the high side so I’ve cut out a lot of the sugary items that I usually consume. It made grocery shopping yesterday take forever as I took the time to read the labels on any processed items I purchased to see how much sugar the items contained.
Lil Bean has still been nice and active though and he is measuring right where he needs to be. My blood pressure checked out great and I am so thankful that I have been having a moderately healthy pregnancy.
