Praise the Lord! My glucose test turned out to be normal and the doctor said I don't have anemia. I never heard of that but anyway my blood pressure is also normal and the baby's heartbeat is fine.
Another good note, I feel much better than Week 28! This time, I've gained 31 pounds in 30 weeks! The doctor said it's normal and about just the right amount of weight I should gained. But that's hard for me to believe since I still have 10 more weeks left. My hands and feet are about swollen now. My shoes and wedding ring are not comfortable to wear. They feel tight already. A good thing I have a few comfortable shoes and sandals to walk comfortably in. I even have to take off my wedding ring all because I'm told that it's best to do so since I won't be able to (due to the more swelling) as the weeks go by. I've even heard that if I don't take it off during my labor/delivery, they'll cut it off! There's no way I am letting them cut it off.
I was stubborn about not wanting to take off my bracelets. I have to suffer my consequence. I normally wear 7 thin gold bracelets on the right. It was really difficult trying to take off my bracelets with a swollen hand and oh how it hurts!! I took all six of them off within two days. Because I couldn't get them off before, I really thought I had no choice but to go to the jewelry store to get them cut off. Thankfully somehow this afternoon my hand wasn't as swollen and I took advantage of trying to get them off. I just can't take the last one off all because my right hand hurts already. I'm taking a break since it feels like it's bruised. I know that I better not wait too long. Lesson learned.
Anyway, the baby has been moving a lot lately. Most recently, I was able to feel her hiccups! How weird is that?!? I find myself waking up at different times throughout the night and early mornings all because she's awake and moving. With sleepless and restless nights, I've noticed I get tired during the day and sleep often. Now I am pretty slow in getting things done. No question, my feet hurts from standing long periods of time. I can't even polish my own toe nails anymore but my kind husband willingly offer to help make my toes pretty. He did struggled with the nail polish and all but I'm sure he'll get better because I still have 10 more weeks left. Hee hee
