One week Follow up

Today I had my 1 week follow up appointment from my stay at the hospital and I am happy to say that Dr. Boswell says we are doing great. I have been diligently poking my finger and recording my blood sugar's as well as logging everything I eat and/or drink in my trusty composition notebook to help ensure I am eating the appropriate amount of carb/protein ratio. Ask my husband, I have even enlisted the help of a measuring cup so I can be as accurate as possible. At my appointment today she did say that going on medication to help with the sugar levels in my blood are inevitable, and it is nothing I am doing wrong. Thankfully though, we are able to avoid it for one more week. We did reset the date for our scheduled c-section and confirmed it with the hospital so as of now, if all goes well we will show up to Labor and Delivery at St. Lukes by 5:30am on Thursday March 18, 2010 to begin the surgery at 7:30 and welcome our precious girl all well before lunch time. But for now, I will be monitored weekly with alternating ultrasound and a fetal non stress test to make sure all remains well until it is time for her arrival.
