I have to sit here for 3 hours!

Oh my! I knew the minute I took the standard glucose screening test, that I would end up taking the 3 hour version. I took it when I was pregnant with little J, and I offered to bet my OB's assistant a million bucks that they would be signing me up for the 3 hour version. Lucky for her, she didn't take the bet. We saw the OB yesterday, and everything seems to be going well with our little princess. She's a little tougher on mommy, that Little J was. She likes to be a bit rambunctios throughout the night. She makes it difficult to stay comfortable, and I know she thinks my bladder is her personal trampoline! We did get the news, that I was in store for the 3 hour version of the glucose screening test. I had to fast for 12 hours! Do you know what it is like to wake up at 2:30 in the morning with a little one kicking your guts out and your tummy growling louder than you can turn your television up? It is miserable. I was so hungry, I couldn't go back to sleep! Ugh! Thankfully I got the test over with this morning, but by the time I could eat, I was beyond hungry and nothing seemed to be satisfying. Oh well.....with all the joy Little J brings, I know that all this discomfort will be worth every second.

I remember after 17 hours of labor with Little J, and they decided to do an emergency C-section, that the minute I saw his adorable little face, that I wanted to do it all over again. I know I'll feel the same when when our princess arrives. Since I'm having a C-section again, we got to pick our date yesterday too. It's almost like waiting for Christmas to arrive! I am so excited, that I can't wait for the date to get here, but also, I'm going to miss being pregnant with her. Kind of a double edge sword there.

Off to play with Little J, he's jumping up and down for some attention now!

i know, with having to have had an emergency c-sxn with emi and then almost getting to choose the date (working around our ob's schedule), it was really different knowing when she might be arriving. she held to her date, hopefully yours will too!

i'm so excited for you girl!!!

That's so exciting! I'm sure it will feel exactly like Christmas day when the actualy day comes. Best wishes!

Sooo when is the date? Glad you got through your test okay. What torture! Really who thought to put preganat ladies through that. I had the 1 hour one and didn't even know there was a 3 hour - I probably would have sat there crying until it was over!

How exciting to know the date of your delivery! I know what you mean by being excited about the birth but at the same time missing being pregnant.
Thanks for stopping by my blog and your kind comments. You're welcome anytime :)
