Failed the glucose test


My level was a 133 and I needed 129 or under to pass. So now I go back Monday and suffer through the 3 hour test.

I'm bummed but things could be worse. I'm grateful the doctors are on top of this stuff and if I have the Gestational Diabetes we can start treating it and baby Kevin will be fine.

Yesterdays Appt

I had my OB appt yesterday. GD Test and the regular check up stuff.
GD test went fine. I was given the orange drink last time I went so I just drank it an hour before my appointment and they took me right away. I get the results on Monday.

Heartbeat was great, My weight was fine. I am up 17 pounds - eek.

However the midwife scared me a bit when she broke out the measuring tape. She measured me, looked confused, got out my chart, looked something up, measured me again and she didn't look happy
She said I was measuring too big!
I started to freak out and asked if my baby was growing too fast too quickly?

She then asked how tall I was and when I told her 5 feet she looked a bit relieved, FINALLY smiled and said that petite women will often measure bigger but she wanted me to get an ultrasound just to make sure.
Apparently I grew a bit too much between weeks 24 and 29.
I did see a doctor not the midwife last time. IDK if that matters

So I had a surprise ultrasound and baby is doing great! Just fine! He weighs about 2 pounds 14 oz and is in the the 59th percentile. His measurements are perfect! It is just me that is HUGE

I now see the OB every 2 weeks until I hit 36 weeks, then it switched to every week.

I hope all of you have a great Holiday !
