I just wanted to do a quick update.

I have my three hour glucose test tomorrow. I have my first finger prick at 7:50am and then I drink the fun drink and will have my blood tested after 30 min and then another 30 min and then every hour, for a total of 3 hours. I have been eating this special diet that they gave me, saturday, sunday and today. It's a lot of carbs and sugar and a little protein. I'm ready for it to be over. I'm not expecting to pass.

I had an appt last Thursday when I was 27 weeks. I was measuring 31 weeks. Yikes! Hopefully after I get my blood sugar under control things will even out. I'm really hoping I don't have a giant baby growing in there.

My inlaws bought us our glider. It's actually the Poang chair from IKEA. The frame is medium brown and then cushion is the Robust off-white leather. They bought us the matching foot stool too. I love it! It fits my body perfectly. I've been sitting in it so much.

My sister sent out my baby shower invites on Saturday! I'm so excited for it! I ordered my shower dresses and maternity picture clothes and they were delivered last week. Everything is coming so fast!

I think that's about all I have to update on. I will update with my glucose results as soon as I know if I passed. Hopefully tomorrow afternoon.

Poang Chair


  1. I really hope you pass your 3-hour test. My OB said 15% of woman fail their 1-hour but only a few percent really have GD so there is still hope! I'm also measuring way ahead but they think it's because of the baby's position...oh well, I have an ultrasound soon so we will get more info then. Anyway, GL tomorrow!

  2. Don't stress too much about measuring ahead, things change so much in the last little bit of pregnancy :) Good luck tomorrow, my fingers are crossed already for you!

  3. Good luck tomorrow! I love your Ikea chair, Matt and I want that one for our room--cozy!

  4. awwwwwwwww!!!! cant believe baby shower status!!! told you it would all happen for ya. sorry bout the glucose test i think they just have you diet..
