29 weeks and ready to be done! Alas, there are 11 more weeks to go. My doctor appt went well today. Baby girl still has a healthy heart rate (160 bpm) and I am measuring at 30 cm which my doctor says is great. My beverage of choice for the glucose test this morning was fruit punch and wasn't as bad as I was told. Easy as punch. The only downside to my appt was again getting on that blasted scale. I had a huge gain this last month. I am up to a total of 30 lbs....gulp. I tried going off my nausea meds last weekend....needless to say, I am back on them. My biggest pain in the rear is literally a pain in the rear. For the last 2 weeks my siactic nerve has been acting up big time and I can't walk normally anymore. I limp around and wake up John every night from trying to turn over in bed. I really try to be quiet, but it hurts really bad. Hopefully, the baby will just decide to move and I can be pain free. My doctor appts are now every 2 weeks so we are nearing the end. Until next time...

Well, I think you are an extremely cute pregnant person. You look great. And I voted on a name. I hope my choice wins.

I had the pain with LT and was scared to get it with teak but never did. Hopefully you won't with the next. I got my at 4 mths and couldn't walk at all.

Karina,
I was on Tamars page and saw this link and thought that I would check it out. You look great! I know how the weight thing goes, at least you are tall. I gained 25 lbs with Ava, but I am only 5'6"! You Manderino girls look great pregnant! Congrats on the anniversary. You guys look so happy!

My sciatica was so bad with Payson that I would go in to start treating a patient and my hip would go out and I wouldn't be able to put any weight on my leg. Pretty funny if you ask me. Getting in a pool helps. I felt normal whenever I had pool patients I had to get in with. If it stays bad, just get a Physical Therapy referral to someone who has worked with prenatal gals before. Good luck. I remember laying on the bed one night stuck in one spot because it hurt to move and thinking, "This kid better be cute, because this sucks." Sure enough, he's still cute.
