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!
