25w4d "glucose"

Once again I took way too long between posts. I apologize. And once again it's been a crazy week.

Apple seems to be doing best out of the whole family. I got an ultrasound on Friday. Apple is still totally normal and healthy and was 1 lb 11 oz. Bluebear is looking pretty good, too. Her ventricles are 10% larger than the normal range but they haven't grown at all and if it stays like this she won't need surgery! That was (cautious) good news. She was 1 lb 10 oz.

I'm doing ok. My back has started to give me real trouble sometimes. Getting comfortable at night is getting harder because of the back pain. Hopefully, the back brace will arrive today.
Also, I failed my glucose test on Friday. Just barely. I was looking up more information about the test ranges. My results are considered a fail by some Drs and a pass by others. I was right on the border. So that means that this morning I drank 100 g of glucose and get my blood drawn 4 times instead of 50 g and 1 draw. I'm just about up for my third draw. Man, I don't like these glucose tests. I've been nauseous since I took the drink two hours ago. I'm jot sure which is worse. The nausea or the orange flavored burps...
I'm really hoping that I don't have gestational diabetes.

M is having his own issues. He sprained his ankle a few weeks ago playing basketball. It has been healing pretty well, but last night he was playing again and busted it even worse. It was huge. We may end up going to get it x-rayed.
Oh, and M's grandma just got out of the hospital after a week in the ICU and heart surgery. She flew in from Georgia. M's parents brought her to our house for a BBQ and within 10 minutes she was at the hospital. Fortunately, we live 3 minutes away. Unfortunately, M's parents live 45 minutes away. After a week spending days in the ICU and nights in our guest room (if you can call 5 hours a night) M's mom was ready to go home. Wasn't too inconvenient for us, but the poor woman was so totally exhausted. Grandma is doing better now.

So...It's been a little stressful around our house. I hope things are a little calmer for the rest of you! I'll try to get the pictures up soon.


  1. Fingers crossed for good results from the 3GTT!
    Great news on your little ones, and that BB's condition is looking stable and so promising!

    I her you on the back pain. I will be interested in how the brace will work for you!

    I hope Grandma will get better soon, and hubby's recovery gets up to speed!

  2. So glad to hear the babies are doing well! That sucks that your hubby and Grandma have been down. Hope everyone gets better soon. And good luck on the next test! Many people who just barely fail the first test pass the next with flying colors!
