Glucose testing

Today I had my 28 week check up at the doctor's office. It went very well except for the fact that I've gained 8 pounds in the last 4 weeks! Yikes! That baby sure is growing quickly. She said I'm still healthy and look great. Baby's heart beat was very strong as well which is a good sign.

I also had to do the glucose testing to see if I have gestational diabetes. I should know in a few days the test results. Secondly I received my shot of Rogham becuase I'm Rh negative. This is needed to keep the baby safe from my blood. Best of all, the nurse took three vials of blood and I didn't pass out! I'm finally making progress in this department.

I also start seeing the doctor every other week, so lots of monitoring and updating to come.

Hi Erika,

Glad to hear things are going well. Get used to the weight gain, it only increases more quickly from this point on-trust me. You'll look back and appreciate how light you were. I suggest slip on shoes as tying gets difficult. Soon baby stuff will start taking over your house too. Oh yeah, I also wanted to suggest a DVD called Happiest Baby on the Block. Remember Mrs. Sharkey? She bought it for us and swears by it since using the tips with her grandchild. I can't wait to watch it after my final papers and projects are over for the semester.
