Baby Update

I went in for my monthly OBGYN appointment today. Everything is still going well. I did get my glucose drink for next month. I will get to drink this yummy goodness an hour before my visit next month and then they will draw my blood an hour afterward to make sure that my body can handle the excess sugar. In six weeks I'll get another ultrasound to check her measurements to make sure that she is progressing as she should. I informed the doctor today that she is definitely an active little girl. He said that active is good, because active is healthy!

I am staying tired lately. This pregnancy is really kicking my butt. But, I can handle it. Today I was sure thinking it'd be nice to look up cheap hotels in the area to get some rest. But, then I was brought back to reality and had to go home to hungry kids with dirty laundry to be washed. Ahhhh...the joys of a working mother. :)

I remember having to drink that stuff! Yuck. I also remember when ever they have you drink something they say "don't go to the bathroom" Great thing to tell a pregnant woman! I had to go so bad every time, it hurt! - lol! Hope it goes well for you!

Well, Im glad all is going great. Yes, being a working mom is not the easiest thing in the world but you better get ready for #3. They say if you can handle 2, 3 is a piece of cake...lol. You will have to let us know:)

I'm glad all is going well. I'm sorry you are tired, but sometimes that is what happens. I guess it's better than having morning sickness 24/7 through the entire pregnancy. Get some rest and big hug. :)

I think it's something about the 3rd pregnancy that just is exhausting, everyone I know who is pg with their third is just wiped out, including me lol. Glad your appt went well :)

I'm glad things are progressing as they should. I surely DON'T envy the glucose tolerance test - ICK!

Oh I hated the glucola tests. I was gestational diabetic with all 3 kids and now am diabetic.
Glad everything is going well, I have been reading but just now getting settled enough to start commentng more.

I have to my glucose test soon as well. I am pretty sure my doctor said she is going to skip the one hour test and go straight to the 3 hour test with me.

My pregnancy is kicking my butt as well. It is all worth it in the end though.

I'm glad your baby is doing well inside of you. I'm happy to know your baby is active which is a sign of good health. Take care.
