29 weeks

I passed the glucose test! Yay! It was pretty awful. It snowed that morning so the traffic was terrible. We were 30 mins late which added an additional 30 mins to my already terribly long wait of 3 hours without eating! A big deal for a hungry preggo. The glucose drink was twice as sickingly sweet. I was so dizzy and nauseous You have to sit in the waiting room for 3 hours and have your blood drawn 4 times. If you fail it twice, then you have gestational diabetes. I passed the first 2 tests and then failed the third. I was so glad that I passed the final test with flying colors! We celebrated by getting Chipotle and I was so hungry that I actually ate the whole thing by myself because I wasn't able to eat anything that day until 1pm! That night we had a tour of the birth center at our hospital. It was really sweet to be able to picture where this is all going to happen! Next time we are there, Lord willing, we'll be finding out who has been living in my tummy for the past several months. Brian even won a drawing for a free baby blanket.
