Gestational Diabetes... and the icky orange drink!

Today I had my gestational diabetes testing which consists of fasting the entire morning, drinking a horribly sugary orange flavored drink, sitting around and waiting for an hour, and then having your blood drawn after the hour is finally up. This was awful! I hadn't eaten anything since last night at 7:30pm and so I was unusually hungry... and to top it off Gibson and I joined Gerod at his usual morning breakfast place Panera Bread, where they have some of the best pastries! Of course I couldn't eat any... I just got to stare at the wonderful goodness in front of my eyes! :(
Needless to say the test is over with, and I am just hoping I passed. If I fail the test I have to go through all of this again, but instead of just one hour I have to drink the drink and then get my blood drawn every hour for THREE hours...! So lets just hope I don't get a phone call from the doctor saying I got failing results.
Other than that the doctor said I am doing well, and growing right on track. I am up to two week visits now... so my next appt will be May 13th, but before that Gerod and I scheduled a 3D/4D ultrasound like we had done with Gibson, and that is scheduled for May 8th! We cant wait to see better ultrasound pics of Chad!
