Baby Status Updates...

Our last apptmt gave us a more definitive answer to the sex of our baby. I was of course hesitant about the answer of us having a girl at our sonogram in late June. The sonographer did not have the best view of the baby, but thought we were having a girl. This was not assurance enough for me, so we asked the doctor if there was a way we could have another peak to determine the sex of our little one. Sure enough, the sonographer was right! We are definitely having a girl!! Whew..was I excited to know that I could continue with the room decor and not have to exchange all of the pink gifts from our baby shower for blue ones. Our doctor did the recheck and said it was the clearest image she had ever seen for determining the sex of a baby.

It was also our last apptmt where I had to take my glucose test. Unfortunately I did not pass, and had to take the 3 hour glucose tolerance test. I struck out on that one as well. What that means is that I apparently have gestational diabetes, and now I have to follow a specific diet where I am counting carbs and I also have to stick myself and check my glucose level 4 times a day! The worst part of it is that I am not allowed to have any desserts until after the baby is here!! Do you have any idea how cruel that is not allow a pregnant woman to have anything sweet? Following along with the diet is not too terrible, it just takes some planning and it will be much easier to follow since my husband is soo great to do it right with me! Just a little over 2 months and I will be ordering up dessert from the maternity unit ;)
