quick belly pic...29w2d

I am so tired...I keep promising an update...but by the time DD goes to bed, I want to pass out on the couch! So, soon! In the meantime, here is a current belly pic! I have a big appointment with a pediatric cardiologist on Thursday to make sure both babies' hearts are healthy and normal (everything seems normal but since I had a fixable heart defect at birth, they are at risk for something similar, so we are just being careful). I will update then. I am not nervous at all really...just interested in the 30 minute ultrasound I get!!!!

26 weeks...GD tests, etc

I am terrible at getting on the computer lately. My beautiful girl is seriously a handful! I get an hour to myself in the morning by locking her in the family room with sesame street so I can do laundry, take a shower and anything else that needs to be done...and I still have to check on her 5 times because the kid does not sit still. She watches it from standing on top of the coffee table or toychest and jumping up and down, she tries to open the screen door to the fenced yard (and sometimes succeeds), she does everything in her power to stay moving constantly! I know TV is frowned upon but, lets be honest, I'm 26 weeks preggo with twins and sometimes need a little break!!!! So, she watches sesame street and sometimes Blues Clues, but that's about it for now. Talk to me again closer to Oct. 30!

A couple of weeks ago I had my first one hour GD test and failed with a whopping 185! I was told I'd likely have it because diabetes runs in both sides of my family and I am carrying fraternal twins, which significantly increases the likelihood...so I was ready. I took the 3 hour test last friday and was sure I failed. Everyone I've ever heard of who passes that feels awful and sick by the end of it. I felt fine! Absolutely fine. Drank the icky stuff, sat there and read the kindle in between each blood draw. On Monday I bugged the OB's office for the results but they didn't get them....then Tuesday, whew! I passed! With flying colors! My blood glucose levels were on the low side! yay!!!!! I was dreading the added worry, the diet (in conjunction with my celiac diet, eek), and the increased chance of a csection, which I don't need with the doc already telling me it is likely. Ugh.

Anyway, that is about the only stuff I have to update on for now. Terribly boring, I know. I will try to post later this week with some pics and stuff. My HUGE belly and my beautiful girl and maybe a few puppy pics....
