Pregnancy Update: 27 Weeks


My mom's retirement party was today!  I wasn't able to make it (being on a weekday) but I celebrated from afar :) Now I know I can call on her anytime haha.

We had another check up this week and doc says everything is looking good.  No mention of gaining too much or not enough weight, so I think I'll keep going as I am haha.  She did book me to do my glucose test though!  It wasn't NEARLY as bad as I was expecting it to be.  I waited to do it until Sunday morning so I could go in right away and get tested.  They recommend you eat a small meal (I had eggs), wait 1 hr before drinking the glucose, then drink the 10 oz bottle in 10 min.  You have to get into the hospital and be tested within one hour of the time you stop drinking.  The glucose just tasted like a flat sprite.  Not bad at all and I didn't get sick.  All the things other people freak you out about!  Results came back normal so no gestational diabetes!  I can't imagine not being able to eat sweets or carbs the rest of this pregnancy.  Nooooo thank you.
Every week I set up the camera and need Kevin to stand in so I can focus it.  Sometimes he's very cooperative.....
