So today was my 24 week check-up (6 months). I saw a new doctor today, Dr. Redden, and I really liked her. She brought lots of encouragement and excitement to my visit! However, I still love Dr. Jones... So back to my appointment: Today I had to have my glucose test!!! I was very scared because it is the week of Thanksgiving and I have already had my work dinner to enjoy for 2 days in a row. Tuesday, after my turkey and dressing breakfast, I decided to drink water until my eyes were floating and that is exactly how I felt! DETOX... So I woke this morning to enjoy nothing but my fruit punch glucose drink. As the nurse pricks my finger I say a quick prayer that I will be able to enjoy the rest of my Holiday meals! YAY~ I passed with a 136! Bring on the Apple Pie...
I also learned today that I have gained 9 pounds from my last appointment! Now normally I would not share that type of information, but I am pregnant and I have totally hit a growth spurt in the past couple of weeks. I am not going to take this too serious because up till now, I have not gained a whole lot of weight. Now if I can keep my total weight gain around 30 lbs. I will be a happy camper! Let's pray for a 7lb. baby!!!
