Child of Mine....

Child Of Mine

Like the warmth of a loving hug, I feel you everyday.
Tossing and turning about you move every which way.

At first you were a tiny seed in my womb that grew more and more each day.
Now your Dad and I are anxious because we know that you are on your way.

We will wait ever so patiently to see your loving face,
For we know that it will be filled with wonderful loving grace.

You are our little miracle sent to us from up above.
God just knew that we would be the ones for you to love.

I thank the Lord for giving you to me,
for choosing us as your Mommy and Daddy to be.

I want you to know now loving child of mine,
That I will love you and hold you from now until the end of time.

No Gestational Diabetes for ME!

After a fairly cruddy day yesterday, this was the best news I could have gotten today!

My numbers:
1 hour results
174 (yuck!)
3 hour results
Fasting: 91
1 hour: 182 (yipes)
2 hour: 101 (go pancreas!)
3 hour: 69 (and I wonder why I was so hungry!)

For those of you that don't know, most OB's look for 2 abnormals in the 3 hour. I only had 1! For those that's how they diagnosed GD with a 3 hour.

Fasting95 or higher
At 1 hour180 or higher
At 2 hours155 or higher
At 3 hours140 or higher
I have learned more then I ever wanted to know about gestational diabetes this week!

If it can will...

I went last Friday to take my 1 hour glucose test. I didn't think anything of it since I didn't have any problems passing it with your brother. Well apparently you had a different idea because on Tuesday mommy got a call from Michelle at Dr. Collins' office telling her that she failed the test and that she would have to take the 3 hour test. Yuck Yuck and Double Yuck! On Saturday, mommy got up bright and early and made it to Quest to sit for 3 hours after drinking that 'wonderful' Orange Glucola. At least the time when by quickly as mommy got to sit and read. And reading is exactly what she did! She looked at homes for sale, read 2 TV guide magazines and almost finished the book that she has been trying to read for week--Honeymoon with My Brother (definitely recommended!). You, miss Clare, didn't know what to think of all that sugar because you kicked like crazy for almost the entire 3 hours! Hopefully mommy will find out tomorrow if she passed or failed. Mommy and daddy are crossing our fingers that mommy passed!

Only 10 1/2 weeks until we see you!
