I got the call last week that I do in fact have to take the 3 hour glucose tolerance test. I tried to do it during the week last week, but fitting 3+ hours into an already tight schedule just wasn’t going to work and we were out of town last weekend. The nurse told me that it was fine if I needed to wait until this upcoming Saturday so that’s what I’m going to do. I’m not looking forward to it, but I’m ready to get it over with and just know one way or the other. It’s kind of the only “chore” I need to get done before I can go completely into summer mode so I’ll be glad when it’s done regardless of the results really.
How far along: 30+1…30 sounds so much further along than 29. Maybe it’s because we’ll be in the 30s from now until my due date
How big is baby: about the size of a platypus minus the tail, almost 17 inches long and just about 3.5 pounds…she should be adding on about a 1/2 a pound a week which just sounds crazy
Symptoms: Tired, on and off Braxton Hicks. They don’t usually hurt, but they make it hard to breathe, like my lungs get cramped so I feel out of breath until it passes
Movement: Still active and can make my stomach shake and roll pretty good when she’s in the mood
Sleep: not bad, I actually slept from about 11:30p-4:30a without having to get up and use the bathroom. That’s pretty dang good for me these days!
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? My daughter turned 3 yesterday (where does the time go?!) she was so happy it was finally her birthday and just lit up every time someone mentioned it
