I passed...

I've always just assumed that this would be the point in this pregnancy that things would start falling apart. I prepared myself for it. I made sure to have a lot of the big things completed just in case I ended up on bed rest or something. For the most part the things that are left to do are things that really don't NEED to be complete in order to bring our babies home and here I am, not on any type of bed rest or restriction. 

Similarly, I was always SURE I would end up with gestational diabetes. I've read that PCOS'ers are more likely candidates and twin mamas are also at a higher risk-- NO GD here! Yahoo. Thank goodness because my cravings this pregnancy have been for summer fruits/berries, corn on the cob and sweets (in moderation of course!)... and that would have been painful if just as they were coming into season I had to step away from them! 

One more bridge crossed. Now, I start marking off the milestones in terms of weeks. Right now I'm thinking in terms of two week increments-- back to this again?!?! The first milestone will be in 6 days when I am 28 weeks and officially in the third trimester no matter what book or website you are reading. I can't believe we are already here, exciting and terrifying all at the same time!

Aww yay! So glad to hear you passed the dreaded glucose test! Makes the 3rd trimester so much better to not have restrictions! :)

You sound so much like me! I was convinced that I'd have GD for all of the same reasons as you, and I am as shocked as everyone else that I'm not on bedrest yet. 28 weeks is a huge milestone- you're almost there!! I cannot believe how fast the time is flying by. Congratulations on passing your glucose test- now go enjoy some fruit!
