29 weeks. U/S & glucose testing!

Whoa. I'm 29 weeks today.

Time has been flying, as usual! Things have been crazy busy and having a toddler to chase after really makes everything go at warp speed!

I had my glucose testing yesterday...don't I look thrilled?? lol

With my first pregnancy, I failed the 1st test by only a couple of points and had to do the long 3 hour 100g test. Turned out I did NOT have gestational diabetes with Bennett, not even close.

So I'm reallllly hoping that this time I pass the 1st test because I do not want to go in again and drink that 100g drink. I just might vomit. Not to mention who wants to hang around their OB's office and get their blood drawn every hour for what seems like eternity? Enough about that.

UPDATE!! ::  I got the results of my test. I PASSED!!! Bad news?? I'm getting pretty anemic so I have to start taking 300mg of iron, 3 times a day :( Bummer. But at least I don't have to do the 3 hour glucose test! 

Here's a picture of my little Fitz at just about 29 weeks gestation. We could get a really good picture cause he was squished between the placenta and my uterine wall... but I like his little profile. :)


I will let you all know when I get the results back from the glucose test! Keep your fingers & toes crossed for me!

I don't think it's possible for you to be any cuter. =)

YAY! I always beg my doctor for a bottle of the orange drink when I go see her. I love it!! ;)

Good luck!!

I hope you get great results! I always hated that test.  You look adorable!

Oh yay! He is looking too cute already! And good luck with the glucose testing! I had to do it with every child, and with Vivienne I had to do the 3-hour test TWICE because someone apparently screwed up my results (or something else, I'm not sure) and so they couldn't trust that they were accurate. That was AWFUL! You look absolutely radiant, pretty lady =)

That test is the worst.  I got off easy with my first - my doctor just did a little finger prick to check my sugars at one appointment and since they were normal he didn't make me do the test.  Nice huh?  Didn't get so lucky with my others.  But at least now it's done.  Hopefully you will be spared the 3 hour test!

You look wonderful and sorry about the low blood.  But, you are a busy Mom and must keep that energy level UP.

By the way, I've been playing with the self portrait and posted one of myself on yesterday's entry and gave you the credit for my doing it with a link back to your blog.

Happy week dear!

Oh my goodness, I would be so happy if they would have just pricked my finger! Ha ha. And I passed the test BTW! YAY!

mandy at asortafairytale said...

I can't believe that you had to do it twice because someone screwed up!! I'd be sooooo annoyed!!

mandy at asortafairytale said...

Thanks!! I passed :)

mandy at asortafairytale said...

Awe, thanks sweetie!! This was one of the only days in the past few weeks I actually had my hair & makeup done. Ha ha

mandy at asortafairytale said...

The orange one is the best for sure! But.. I don't love it. Ha ha.

theplanetpink said...

Yay for passing!!

Sarah Halstead said...

You know how I can tell I'm not ready to have kids....I want to add rum to that water bottle of fruity goodness.  j/k ;)

Chelsea @The Curly Cues said...

Yay congrats! I hate the glucose test, but the orange drink is the best one at least. Hmm, you may inspire me to post my first bump pic!

Yes the orange one is definitely the best option. And yes, you need to post a baby bump photo!! I didn't post one till I was 13 weeks so I know how it goes - but you need to do it! :)
