Before Tim left this morning I asked him to stay home and go to my OB Appointment with me. I was nervous, I had a dream last night that they were unable to find the heart beat, but after the dream I was woken up by Baby Z kicking. I knew that the dream was not true, but I was nervous and worried something would be wrong. He was busy at work today and reassured me that things were probably fine. Gee Thanks Hun...
When I finally got out of bed I started packing for Washington, D.C. We leave on Thursday morning on the train. We are going with Tim's parents and I cannot wait. I want to see the sites and I am hoping that there are still some Cherry Blossoms in bloom. I have always wanted to go and see the historical sites and museums. We are taking the train to D.C. - It is a 2.5 hours trip to NYC then 3 hours to D.C. I am going to bring a few books and my phone charger.
After getting laundry done and packing a little I thought it was a good time to get my butt on the treadmill and walk a little. I ended up doing 2.5 miles at 3.3 mph. I watched last night's Hart of Dixie. I am so glad that show is back on. I am really into the story line and I was not happy they took a month off. I did not want to over due the walking because of the cramping I had on Sunday night and Monday morning
Then it was time to go to my appointment. Of course I was almost late because I stopped at Walmart on the way and the check out line was a P.I.T.A.! When I got weighed today the scale said 205.6lbs!! Oh dear! That is a 15.6 lb gain from November 18th and a 21 lb gain from the first week in January. I guess it is time for be to buckle down and get my A$$ into shape. The doctor did mention the weight and said that he really only wants me to gain 3-5 more pounds. The ice cream cravings are doing me in! He said I need to be careful because of my blood pressure and I also have the gestational diabetes test in a few weeks. They gave me the request form and I am supposed to do it the first week of May before my next appointment. What an appointment... now I am feeling a little down. I definitely have to get back into my healthy eating and exercising. The eating is my current downfall.
Good news the baby's heart beat was good with a rate of 148 bpm. I also have a solution for my calcium intake. I was worried about not getting enough yogurt and the doctor said I could chew 5 Tums a day and it would be enough for the recommended amount of calcium.
Lots to think about now... Need to get my head in the game!
