Well I had my glucose test today. I had one early on in my pregnancy at my request and so today was the reg. scheduled one. I have gestational diabetes. It should be able to be managed with diet. I'm going to do everything in my power to control it that way. I go Friday to a specialist and will get my tester and talk to the dr about my restrictions, etc. When the guy at Tricare called today for me to make my apt they said to try eating salads and lots of protiens. I'm a carb girl, always have been...so please pray for me that I can do this without any struggle.
I have diabetes all over in my family, so it has always been something I've known could happen and then with me overwieght it really upped the chances big time. I am going to start walking more, so
I had an ultrasound today and the baby is measuring right on target and my fluid levels are perfect as well. The ob said that if the baby was bigger (something I did know) that'd be a sign and if I had extra fluid it'd also be a sign (something I didn't know!), so the fact that both are great is a GREAT sign that this was caught early on.
The baby is "breech" which isn't a big deal for me since I'll have a c-section but it explains why it was so hard to get a good heart reading today during my non-stress test! Every other u/s the baby has been head down, so since I had the stress test before the u/s I guessed that she was still head down and we put the dopler where we THOUGHT her heart would be, we were getting readings but it was really hard and I had to keep pushing on the doppler for the 30 minutes of the test, and lets just say I was not comfy at all during that! :) I think ultimately we had the doppler on aprox. her little tushy! LOL So I'm actually impressed we ever got a reading, she obviously has a strong heartbeat! hehe
Ok, I have to be up in about 6 hours. Chad has knee surgery in the morning, so please keep him in your prayers. We're dropping the boys off at a friends at 6:30, then off to his drs for surgery. Hopefully we'll be home by early afternoon! They're calling for rain tomorrow so I'm not sure if Jackson will have his last game tomorrow or not! We'll just have to see!!!
