Almost 26 Weeks
Today I had my 26 week appointment with Dr. Shields. I was really worried about the glucose tolerance test for gestational diabetes. I heard from several friends that if I failed it, I would have to go back for a 3 hour test where they draw your blood every hour for 3 hours. Yikes!! I HATE having blood drawn. In fact, I was dreading this day for the entire month. However, after drinking the horrible orange drink and having my finger pricked, Dr. Shields gave me a gold star and told me I passed with flying colors :) Just what I wanted to hear!! They did find out that I have very low iron (perhaps due to my 6 month long meat aversion!) So, I am going to start taking an iron supplement every day. Everything else looked good. Rose had a strong, healthy heartbeat and my tummy measured right for 25 weeks. Keep growing strong little baby Rose! We love you!!!
