GD Results & Nervous

Time still seems to be flying by! I'll be 25 weeks on Friday.

Good news is that I found I passed my 3 hour glucose test with flying colors. The nurse called Friday to give me the results and I missed her call. I thought for sure she was calling to tell me I failed. I called her back and to my surprise (and hers too, I think) she gave me all my #s.

Fasting: 81 (has to be less than 95)
One Hour: 165 (has to be below 180)
Two Hour: 125 (has to be below 155)
Three Hour: 109 (has to be below 140)

I'm so relieved!

We also picked up the crib this past Friday and DH and FIL put it together yesterday:

It's all starting to feel so real and to be honest, I'm scared! At a moments notice, I feel like crying and I'm not even sure why. It's just all so overwhelming and I realize my life is going to be changed forever. Don't get me wrong, I'm excited, but it's scary. Our whole routine is going to change...just...everything.

On top of that, we've reached viability, so every twinge and ache scares me. On Saturday, I was cramping off and on all day. I don't know if it's RLP or what, but it scared me. Now I'm feeling pressure down low...almost like a UTI, but I'm not sure. I tried calling my doctor this morning and spoke to the nurse. She didn't seem too concerned...just sent me to the lab to give a urine sample. The lab tech said it would take a couple days for results. In the meantime, I'm freaking out. I've never made it this far and so I don't know what's normal...and my nurse is not helping any. I seriously need reassurance. I'm this close to going to L&D just so I can know that everything is OK, but then I feel stupid for even thinking that. And the next minute, I feel stupid for ignoring any type of ache/pain like this. I'm just so scared and I don't know what to do.


  1. You look great! Trust me, you are going to feel a lot of weird sensations/pains. Unless they are constant and requiring pain pills, you are most likely fine! You baby may be sitting or pushing on your bladder. I hate that feeling. Could feel like a UTI. But good for you for getting it checked out. You never know. I love the crib.

  2. You look great. You haven't had any complications to this point so I wouldn't stress. But that is easier said than done. Hang in there lady!

  3. You look amazing! I can't read a bog post and not cry so your emotions may very well continue well after Brady is here. I love his crib. So proud of DH to get it put together, and it is great that FIL is helping as well. It's interesting because as much as we track and keep record of everything we feel while being pregnant, the next pregnancy may be completely different. I look forward to all of your updates even though they make me cry. Love you M!

  4. Those are great numbers! Glad you're over that hurdle. You look great! I hope your pains are nothing.

  5. Thinking about you and saying prayers!! Hope you are feeling better!
    You look great! Love the bump!
    And your crib is, love it! Sending love your way! Xoxox

  6. That is great news! I am so glad you don't have to deal with GD. I am still scared all the time when things don't feel quite right. I have found that it is always best to call the doctor, just in case. Sometimes I feel stupid, but they never make me feel stupid. I just make myself feel like that. Cute bump, too!!
