32 Week Check up & ankle bags

So my doctor says everything is going great in my pregnancy.
i have lost ANOTHER 2 pounds because of the diabetes diet.
so im down to 148 - i only started at 134 - 135ish so a big ol 12 pounds so far... wow!
baby girls heart beat was 154 so she is looking good.
my diabetes is still under control with diet so im all salad and protein!
but it's working! my sugar levels have been perfect aside from the occasional outburst of over indulging or just ONE BITE of something not good for me! lol

June, according to NOAA: a total of 73 for June, July and up to Aug. 17. The
city normally sees summer high temperatures ranging from 83 in June to 87 in
July. But this year it logged nearly all of June and July above normal, and it
spent every day in August, up to Aug. 17, above normal. Still, it hasn't broken
its record 107-degree day, set in 1936"

"By now, your baby weighs 3.75 pounds
(pick up
a large jicama) and is about 16.7
inches long, taking up a lot of space in your uterus. You're gaining about a
pound a week and roughly half of that goes right to your baby. In fact, she'll

fattens up for survival outside the
