apparently, I'm so heavy! I'm so fat! I mean, I've gained 24 lbs since I got preggers, but still, I don't think I was meant to be this heavy...or so I thought! My back hurts, my legs get tired easily...right now my baby Chanelle feels like a huge bowling ball weighing me down... Even exercising is impossible! I was 100 lbs before I got pregnant and now..tsk tsk...I used to love exercising and I've always enjoyed the body jam, the nike rockstar workout in the gym that I missed so much but I really can't even find some effort to have a stretching for the past few months... the last time I went to the gym was last June pa and that time, I wasn't aware I'm already preggo. Ah, what the... I guess just carrying this baby is an exercise in itself. Sigh...so sad! I think I'll have some ice cream but then again... I can't...and I won't because I love my baby so much...and I have some more things to worry aside from my weight...like my blood sugar!
haaay! One of the the things na minomonitor kasi ng OB is yung blood sugar . Risky kasi for the baby kapag diabetic ang mommy, pwedeng maging diabetic din ang baby...not good! At may tendency na lumaki ng sobra ang baby to the point na oversize sya at mahihirapan sya ilabas sa womb...in short, CS! and there are cases daw na kailangang i-dislocate muna ang shoulders ng baby para mailabas at saka ibabalik sa tama..and worst, there have been cases daw of fetal death with moms na may GDM (Gestational Diabetes). waaah!
I first took my OGCT (oral glucose Challenge Test) 2 weeks ago, when I was still 23 weeks pregnant. and mataas daw ang blood sugar ko so my OB sent me to a dietician who gave me a calculated diet or daily food plan.. meaning..no sweets! no sugar! no salty foods! and then, I have to take the OGTT (oral Glucose Tolerance Test) on Saturday to see if it’s diabetes. Super kabado na tuloy ako and I'm just praying na sana normal na blood sugar ko. and to think na four times ako kukuhanan ng blood ...waaah! hohwell...Meanwhile, I've to cut down on my food intake. my baby's growing fast, especially now that I'm in the last trimester. No more sweets, no more ice cream...:( I don't want to squeeze a bowling bowl out of me! Baby, you can get fat naman when you're born, but for now, stay small! At least small enough for me to give birth to you naturally! haaay..
but..apart from being heavy and deprived of all those sweets and sugars and junk foods, I'm still proud of my bilog belly and I just try to think positive all the time. I read somewhere that there is no right way to care for a child, but the one thing that must always be present is love...love..love.. I don't see my baby Chanelle as a burden, as a baby keeping me from doing all the things I love most...or eating the foods that I've been craving for...I'm excited that she's coming out soon. I love her. Aww. And when she comes out, I will eat all the foods, all the cakes and ice creams that I want! hehe Dear Lord, I hope she'll become a very healthy baby girl. sigh. I've also gotten used to my preggy diet and I didn't feel so bad after a few days... thank God!
P.S. Dang my nose is huge! tsk tsk
