Lucky Mama and Lucky Girls

I’m sitting in a nice comfy chair, but unfortunately, I’m in a chair at the lab for my three hour glucose tolerance test. I didn’t pass my glucose screen. The range is 65-139 mg/dL and I was two points too high, 141 mg/dL. I asked my OB if she thought I could just make some diet modification, but she recommended doing the three hour test since I’m having multiples. So, here I am…. I had to start fasting last night at 7 PM and arrived here at the lab at 7 AM today. They just took my baseline blood draw and then I had to drink a 100 mg glucola drink……soooo sweet! The glucose screen was only a 50 mg glucola drink.

I must admit I’ve been eating lots of sweets and carbs. Ice cream pretty much every evening, also enjoying cookies, chocolate, bread, crackers, etc, etc! Getting the high result has scared me into cutting back on the sweets. Just keeping my fingers crossed that I’ll pass this test.

Onto happier things, last weekend I had my second baby shower and it was beyond lovely. Three of my dearest friends went above and beyond to make the day extra special. The pink and gold theme was so cute and their creativity was amazing! The decorations were beautiful, the food so yummy and a fun time was had by all who attended.

Once again, we were beyond spoiled. These little girls are so lucky and we all feel very loved.

  1. How wonderful… the shower part, not the glucose part. I’m so sorry you have to redo that. Ughhhh. I know Aubrey just failed hers… so miserable. After all of those shots and now more finger pricking. Hoping that you pass this second round so you can enjoy (moderate) sweets! Glad your friends showered you and your sweet girls with lots of love!

  2. Bummer for not passing the test but it will all be okay! It seems like you are definitely well loved! That’s a wonderful feeling to have! Looking forward to your updates! xo

  3. Gorgeous pictures thanks for sharing. You be ok, i failed my first screening on my first pregnancy and past the big glucose test. Good luck with it :)
