29 weeks

I had my gestational diabetes screening last Wednesday. I got a call from the office in the early afternoon. She said my number was 134. She then went on to say that it used to be everything under 140 was considered good, but they have since changed it to anything under 130…because of course they have. She said when people fall between the two numbers they let the doctor decide based on history and risk factors if the 3 hour test is needed. My doctor was out of the office all last week so I didn’t get an answer one way or the other. I haven’t heard from the office yet today. I’m hoping I’ll get an answer by the end of the day, but I’m almost positive she will have me do the 3 hour test. I’m definitely not looking forward to it in the slightest especially since it’s super hard to take 3 1/2 hours out of the day during the week and we’re out of town this upcoming Fri-Sun so the weekend isn’t an option. So I’m still in limbo which I’m never happy to be in. I like to know one way or the other and hate to be left “hanging”. If I don’t hear by tomorrow afternoon then I will contact the office. Luckily they’re pretty good about getting back about things promptly.

Weekly Update:

How far along: 29+1

How big is baby: about the size of a New England Cottontail Rabbit, 16 inches long and just about 3 pounds…she’ll likely be at least doubling that weight in the next 11 weeks!

Symptoms: Tired, the Braxton Hicks have slowed down and don’t usually come with the painful cramping I was having which is great. I still get heartburn when I’m hungry, but it hasn’t been terrible. I did have a dream last night that I was trying to decide what Zantac package to buy though LOL

Movement: She’s still a mover and a shaker. I did my first “kick count” last night and it took her 4 minutes to reach the 10 movements they look for. They want to see at least 10 movements in an HOUR so she’s just a bit of an over achiever.

Sleep: I didn’t sleep much Saturday night, but overall it hasn’t been terrible

Miss anything? not getting out of breath just bending over to pick stuff up LOL

Food cravings? sweets, fruit, hamburgers, Mexican food

Anything making you queasy or sick? eating too much. My stomach is definitely getting more cramped in there

Best moment of the week? Spending the weekend doing fun stuff with the kids. We took them to see the Incredibles 2 on Saturday and we took them swimming on Sunday.

  1. Okay, first of all: There’s an Incredibles 2?! I am SO behind the times here!!
    Second: I hope you hear back about the diabetes soon! That’s so frustrating that they would change the numbers! Good luck. I’ll keep my fingers crossed that you don’t have it this time around.
