    That is so bizarre that your test wasn’t fasting. I want your DR!! Ok not really, Tampa is two hours from here. LOL I always fail the 1 hour and have to do the 3 hour. Then I fail one out of four pricks so they tell me I am pre-diabetic and that is that.

    Congrats on making it to the 3rd trimester! I’m glad the glucose test wasn’t that bad. I have mine next week!

    woo hoo for the third trimester! It will both fly by and drag on. I’m not familiar with your uterus thing, but has anyone mentioned Spinning Babies to you? Google their website. All my midwives and basically everyone I know in the birthing community speak really highly of it to get babies into the best possible position for birth. It at least won’t hurt anything!

    I was born in July. My mom had told me for months I was the wrong way and that May I flipped the correct way and when I flipped, she totally felt it. There’s certainly still a chance for you but the bigger she gets, the greater chance you will feel it when it happens I’ve been told.

    My son was transverce for what felt like for.ev.er. but he did eventually flip to head down. Either way, as long as she comes out safe and healthy, none of it matters!

    Yay! I love following you – I’m at 27 weeks today, so we’re right around the same time. And I had my glucose test on Thursday too! I read something that said for the first test you don’t need to fast, but if you don’t pass and need the next test, then you have to fast.

    Here’s to a healthy pregnancy and third trimester, lady! 🙂

    I was surprised about the fasting for the glucose test, too! I go in this Thursday. I asked at my last appointment, and they actually recommended eating something beforehand because otherwise the drink could make me queasy. I would love to not have to drink the whole bottle!! So much sugar intimidates me. Give me all the salty foods!

    Glad to hear baby’s measuring well! Always nice to get those reassurances 🙂

    I definitely had to fast for my glucose test – lucky you! I think that your baby also looks so much like you – she has your nose! What would the baby staying transverse mean for your delivery – would you have to have a c-section? And your cousin’s wife looks so amazing for twins! Glad you both are staying happy and healthy!

    I bet they only had you drink half of the drink because it was a drink with 100mg of glucose (which is normally used for the 3 hour test). For the 1 hour test, usually the drink only has 50mg of glucose, so they probably just used the 100 one and had you drink half. At least I think that’s what I remember from mine. Hopefully you pass with flying colors! My one hour was slightly elevated but the three-hour came back fine. That three-hour one was a beast, though, blech!

    Congrats on the beginning of your 3rd tri! I actually thought 3rd tri went by really fast until the very end. My girl came a week after her due date and I swear that week took years to go by!

    Happy third trimester!! Could they have picked a more disgusting sounding name for that drink? It sounds like Windex.

    Your so lucky you didn’t have to fast! My OB is in Brandon, FL and they made me fast. I HATED IT. I am use to getting up and having breakfast so that was hard. I am not hypoglycemic but my blood sugar tends to hang out on the low end. So when I can’t eat I get shaky and hangry too.

    Because I am 35 (and considered “old”) I was told I have to do my glucose test twice. I had to do it yesterday and I am only 12 weeks along. Then, I get the torture of doing it again at the normal mark of 28-ish weeks. Sucks to be old huh? I ended drinking the orange and it really wasn’t that bad. Gosh sometimes I hate the internet. They make things worse than what they seem. Like all of the horror stories I read of women taking the glucose test. The orange tested like watered down sunkist. My OB was nice enough to serve it cold and give me a small cup of ice.

    I have been following you blog for years and I sort of fell off the blog reading wagon. I remembered awhile back that you had suffered a miscarriage. You popped into my head today for whatever reason, so I looked up your blog and saw your “28 Weeks” post… my heart is happy for you, congrats and many prayers for a happy healthy remainder of your pregnancy, delivery and many yeas of happiness with your new bundle of joy! <3
