So this is another long overdue post.
I'm all pregnancy brain and normal scatter brain over here. Take pity on me. Seriously, pity me because it's getting harder and harder to tie my shoes.
So this was written about two weeks ago:
I am happy to report that I passed by glucose test and do not have gestational diabetes. The glucose test is given to pregnant women around their 25-28 week of pregnancy. There is the one hour test and the three hour test. Basically, if you fail the one hour then you have to take the three hour.I was told to fast before going in (which is odd because some women report not having to fast) to have my blood drawn. Then I was given a bottle of pure sugar glucose drink to down in five minutes.Mine was orange flavored and I kind of liked it. A lot of women say they have a hard time keeping it down so I was really lucky. After you drink the "juice" you have to sit around for an hour so they can take another blood sample. This sample reveals how your body handles that sugary drink you just chugged and can tell if you have gestational diabetes or not.So I passed!However, my blood tests did show that I am slightly anemic. I didn't get exact numbers, but my doctor said it wasn't terrible he would just like to see me up my iron intake. So right now he has me taking iron supplements along with vitamin c supplements.
In addition I am also upping my "greens" in take. Lately I've been doing really well at making my own meals, lots of greens, vegetables and fruit. My most favorite food of the week is homemade spring rolls.
This morning I was in a hurry so instead of slicing up all my veggies I just used the leftovers from THIS recipe to fill the the rolls. Yes, this was breakfast number two and it was good!
So this is me at 32 weeks. I'm 33 weeks tomorrow so only seven weeks left until my due date!
