28 Weeks



Photobucket

I got the dreaded call last week that my glucose test was high so I would need to take the 3 hour test to make sure that I don't have gestational diabetes. It isn't too much of a shocker because I had GD when I was pregnant with Aubs but I took a glucose test at 14 weeks that came back negative so my hopes were high that I would skip it this time around.

I'm pretty sure that if I failed the one hour I am going to fail the three hour too. Hopefully it will be like last time and I will able to control it with diet alone. It actually worked out pretty well last time, I ended up losing 5 pounds the first week that I went on the diet and then barely gained anymore weight throughout the rest of my pregnancy. Aubs also only weighed 7 lbs 10 oz when she was born so I did my job well. I'm not looking forward to pricking my finger four times a day and I'm definitely not looking forward to not eating pizza but you do what you gotta do.

This afternoon I also go back to the high risk doctor for an ultrasound to make sure the baby is growing adequately. If you're not familiar with why I have to do this you can read about it here. I'm hoping everything looks good. From her movement it seems to me like she is growing big and strong so hopefully the ultrasound will confirm that. I am also bringing Joey with me this time because last time all of the high risk talk(even though I'm not technically considered high risk)had my blood pressure through the roof. Also the doctor who is not my usual doctor wasn't very forthcoming with information and my husband will be better at pushing that out of him if we need to. Wish me and baby girl lots of luck!

  3. Hi, I just found your blog. Reading about your first pregnancy was like reading about myself! Got GD, lost 5 lbs, controlled it with [strict] diet, and my son weighed 7 lb 3 oz. He's 2 months old now. I hope you don't have GD again! I really want to skip it with our next one. I'll be staying tuned. Good luck Momma!

  5. Wishing you luck and looking forward to your update. I'm not "high risk" per se, but I have another U/S also at 23 weeks for baby's heart and another around 30 weeks to monitor growth for baby's 2 (vs. the normal 3) vessel cord.
