Pregnancy Update

I got the dreaded news that I did not pass my 1st glucose test meaning I have to fast from midnight forward and go back to the doctor's office at 8:30am to take the 3 hour test where they take blood every hour. Bummer.

Not sure what I'm more concerned about, lack of food or getting blood drawn 3-4 times!

28 weeks along - little guy is presumably 3lbs, not sure if he will come 4 weeks early like his sister but they plan to monitor me weekly for changes/signs.

I haven't been to prenatal yoga for a month; I've been skipping it to go to the beach.

I don't think I'm drinking enough water, probably eating too much sugar, only walking one mile a day. Not living up to my expectations these days. Need to kick self into gear.

Goals -
  • drink 64oz of fluid a day
  • walk 3 miles a day - probably need to add another 20oz of water to compensate
  • do 1/2 hour of yoga every day
  • eat better balanced diet of 3 miles and 2-3 snacks a day

The water would be the easy part. The 3 miles and yoga...not so much.
Hope the test goes well.

Hope the test goes well. I had to do it for both of my pregnancies. Take something to read or do.

UGH, the three hour test. I had to do that once with my first and twice with my second. It makes for a miserable morning, I pray that you make it through and the results are favorable.
