Good News and Bad News...

It was my 27 week appointment today - and the dreaded blood sugar test.

The good news...I was able to drink the glucola with no problems. Trust me, I have been so worried about how it would taste! I also prepared myself for a blood draw, little did I know it was just a finger prick - yay.

The bad news...I have high blood sugar. I will be going back next week for 3 hours of testing and lots of blood drawing. Hopefully the testing will all turn out okay and I won't have to change my diet too much! As for now, no sweets - whaaaat? I swear this little girl better love her mommy!

Oh, those babies, they'll get you any way they can! Actually, I probably should have had gestational diabetes so I wouldn't have eaten so much CRAP during my pregnancies. Good luck with your appointments!! (Isn't that glucose drink HORRIBLE?!?! If you were feeling better, it sure sends you back to the land of morning-sickness, huh?)

Holly! I love your blog - I don't know what you were talking about! It's so cute!
Good luck with the glucose test this week. Just eat a TON before the 16 hour fast and maybe you'll make it!! :)

oh I really, really don't like the glucose test. But, I had my blood drawn, not a finger prick! Good luck with the fasting test...I always ask to take my blood laying down!
