I passed my test!

Glucose test, that is. I got the call from my doctor's office today that I scored a 119, and passed! I took the test last Thursday before my appointment, and it really wasn't bad at all. I had the fruit punch flavored drink, which my nurse had heard was better than the orange. Even though I obviously didn't taste the orange, the fruit punch tasted just slightly sweeter than normal fruit punch. It wasn't until the last two gulps that I was even like, hmmm this isn't that great, and by then I was done.

In other news, Emersyn was measuring in at 3 lbs 2 oz (my doctor said, "that's a big baby")- she doubled in size since my 24 week appointment. If she continues to gain weight how she is supposed to, we'll be on track to have a 9lb 2 oz baby! Eeek. I was 8lbs 6 oz, and my oldest brother was 9 lbs 2 oz. My other brother was 6lbs 8 oz, but I'm not sure how early he was (we were all c-sections after my mom labored with my oldest brother for 27 hours and ended up with a c-section). So we shall see... I start going every two weeks now! No pictures from the appointment because Emersyn is head down.

I was having some pains on the lower left side of my belly last weekend, so my dr also checked my cervix- long and closed. I haven't noticed the pains here lately, so it may have just been baby girl rolling over on some nerves, or round ligament pain.


  1. Hooray for passing the test! That's great news. Sounds like she's growing nicely!! ;)

  2. Congrats on passing the test! I'm so glad to finally hear some positive feedback on this dang glucose test! It sounds so awful! p.s. I'm preggo!! We just found out on Friday! :) I haven't posted to my blog yet, but after I go to the doctor I will! So very excited!
