Give that girl a passing grade!

'Cause I passed my glucose tolerance test! WOOT!

I was so worried about it, because I had three of the four major risk factors listed on the Mayo Clinic website for gestational diabetes. Also, the day I took the test, I didn't know I was going to take the test, and I had a BIG bowl of Cookie Crisp cereal for breakfast. I know that's BAD, but it was the only thing in the house! But, it doesn't matter, because I passed! Yay!

I am "slightly" anemic though, according to my doctor, so I need to start taking iron supplements. I'm okay with that, considering what I could have to be dealing with here. Also, strangely enough, my skin culture came back negative for shingles, so they don't know WHAT I have. I had three different doctors look at it, and they all had said the same thing! She said that since the medication seems to be working, and the rash looks like it's getting better, to keep taking it though.

I feel sometimes like I am 100 years old with all my pill bottles, aches, pains, tiredness, small appetite... I keep telling myself THREE MORE MONTHS! That's right, I'm in the last trimester. This is the home stretch here, and then all of this - the constant pee breaks, the heartburn, the inability to walk even a few blocks without being pathetically winded - it's all going to be SO worth it.

I'm gonna have me a baby!

Awesome on passing your glucose test! :) I failed the first one and had to take the 3 hour one. Be thankful, very thankful. LOL
And cool that you don't have shingles, but nto cool that they don't know what it is.
Get as much sleep as you can get these days because very soon you will not be able to get comfortable enough to sleep (and even if you DO, by some miracle get comfortable enough to sleep, then you will have to wake up and go pee 45 times in one night.) I think it's God's way of preparing us moms for the sleepless nights ahead. ;)
But, you are right, it IS worth it at the end.
