I didn't pass...

Last week I hit my 29th week of pregnancy and went in to have the normal glucose test you get at that time and thought, "I hope I pass, I hope I pass!" The first test was the hour test, I did it and went home and surprisingly got a call two days later. When the nurse mentioned why she was calling I began to sweat a little, I knew if I didn't pass I would be disappointed and of course she began to say "Your sugar level was VERY high" which alarmed me a little but I said ok, so she then told me I failed and I would have to do the 3 hour test, which sucked cause I wanna eat in the morning, I don't want to fast! I want my coffee, I want my food and I don't want to sit for long periods of time! So I said Ok, I'll go re-do my test. I waited 2 days and went in. I drank my nasty sugar drink, got the first poke and then waited an hour. Repeated again for the next 3 hours. I sat and read, played with my phone, paced for a bit and then sat some more. I finally finished the test and basically ran out there and headed for the closest Starbucks!
The next day i though for shits and giggles I would call and see if they by chance had my results. I sat on hold for a bit and the lady that came back was different than the lady that had answered my call, not a good sign. She was a nurse and said "I'm sorry but you did not pass your test, you failed 2 out of the 4 tests". So what does this mean?! What's gonna happen?! She said I have to take some diabetes classes and watch my diet but what I didn't know is that I would have to test my blood four times a day. 4 times people!!!!! I'm so not ok with this! I'm actually a little freaked out! I can deal with changing my diet, keep off the sugars (in moderation) and stay away from a lot of carbs, fine, fine but the blood thing scares me. What if I can't do it? What if I freeze up? Will someone have to do it for me every day because I'm such a chicken shit?!
I have my first class tomorrow, I'll get my meter (yikes) and a ton of information for a nurse that I will apparently be seeing regularly for the next 2 months. So that's my story, I plan to stick to this and make sure me and Gabriel are healthy...wish me luck!

Packin em' on!!

So I went to my monthly baby appointment yesterday, my first appointment in my 3rd trimester and when I came in and weighed in I got brave and asked "So how much weight have I gained since my first appointment?" When I asked I winced, scared at what the answer would be. In the first few months of this pregnancy I was so sick, so nauseous and I never threw up but it was constant gagging all day long and I didn't have an appetite at all, it was HORRIBLE! The doctor put me on meds which just made going to the bathroom impossible! So I stopped taking those and just dealt. Well we sat down and she took my blood pressure, looked at some of the other pages in my chart and said "Well since your last appointment you've gained 9 lbs" 9 POUNDS? Exsqueeze me? She said total I have put on 30 lbs. I still have 3 months left people! I was hoping to not stuff my face this time around but I'm just so hungry!!! I gained 60 lbs with Justin...HELLO, he weighed 7 lbs..what's wrong with that picture? So I'll have to update my NEW weight when I got back in 4 weeks...Ok, I'm off to go find some sweets....

So Justin went to his daily play class today that he goes to every day. My local gym has a class for kids to go to and they just play, learn, dance...well today he was a little to disruptive and the teacher removed him from the class. This is the first time he's been kicked out! He has been acting out more now, I don't know if it's a phase, the terrible 2's creeping up, or what it is but I'm not sure what to do about it. Do I just leave it alone? I don't wanna over react because it probably is just a phase. I am glad though that his dad decided to just show up and see it all!!! I hope tomorrow is better!

These are some of the organizations I care about. Donate so we can find a cure!!!

Rain Rain go away!!!

Lately the weather here has been one day and rain the next. The past couple of days have been full of rain, which is good cause we need it but it's been so nasty. The wind has been blowing hard and it tore up my yard...

Chairs just got flung all over!

Just cold and lonely out front...At least my little palm tree is getting plenty of water!

I GUARANTEE the yard will stay like that until "I" go out there and fix the chairs! Living with 2 guys has it's perks but not all the time!!! I went out front to see if I could see Mt. Diablo but it was to cloudy out. It's just coming down and I hate the fact that we may be stuck inside again today. It's my day off and I want to be out and about but it looks like today will be a day full of Elmo and Noggin. Don't mind it so much though, it's my life now and I'm slowly getting used to it..after a few Tylenol's at least.
