My glucose test is next Tuesday. Thankfully I don't have to fast like last time. They now allow you to have breakfast as long as it's not food with concentrated sugar. I was given a list of suggestions and no-no's when I left the doctor's office. So for those of you who aren't sure what a glucose test is, here's the run-down. Drink a sugary mixture from a bottle (50 grams of glucose), wait an hour, get your blood drawn. If your blood sugar is too high (possibly indicating gestational diabetes) you get to come back another day, and do the same thing, only 4 times in a row over a 3 hour period! Sure hope I do well the first time!

These cute little outfits are from Grandpa Vernon. It is so exciting to look at them and think about these two little boys growing up and playing together!
I had a great doctor's appt. yesterday. I lost 2 lbs. since my last appt. & have only gained 20 since my first appt. (of course I was 9 weeks at the time, and had already gained a few). Anyway, that makes me happy considering all I gained last time. I still have 3 months to go, so I still want to be careful. I do have my splurges, but I think I burn more calories than I realize playing with Adam.
My blood pressure was great (120/70) and Levi's heartbeat was 164. The nurse said, "Perfect!" I don't remember ever hearing that during my last pregnancy!
