Me and my Big Mouth

by

So, yesterday asked my doctor if it was truly okay that I only passed my glucose test by 1 point. Then, I casually mentioned that diabetes runs in my family (brother, several aunts, cousins). That made her decide that we should do the three hour test “just in case.” So, in two weeks, I have to do a three-hour glucose test, which involves fasting overnight and four needles (which I hate). At first I was horribly depressed about this decision. But the more I think about it, the more I think “better safe than sorry.” It really is a problem in my family, and I’ve gained quite a bit of weight in this pregnancy, so I just want to be sure. Anything I have to do to keep little Eliza safe is okay by me. I can take it.

  1. Betsy,
    Just wanted to drop in and say hi. I’m so glad things are going well (besides having to take the glucose test). (-: I’m actually amazed at how mushy Jason is about Eliza. I never would have guessed it, but I think it’s great. Hope your last few weeks are smooth and easy.
