looky here

i failed my 3 hr because they lost the 2 middle blood draws .. i had 2 choices- do the test again or just diagnosis me with it so i do not have to repeat the test - I chose to be just diagnosed with it. So now i have to go to different dr's appointment for diabetes (tomorrow) and i have to stick my finger ~4-6 times a day. She said they would be sending me out for growth scans. I informed her that we are already sent out for growth scans. I had one Monday and will have another in 3 weeks. (insert alil frustration here- pay attention read my file)

I have to admit I am alil bummed out - but It's not the end of the world and I will do my very best to not let this bring my spirits down and make the best of the situation.


Here is more picture progress:

That Mini is growing and growing. The belly looks good. I am sorry to hear about the test. You are right it was probably better to just be diagnosed with it than to swallow the yucky stuff yet again.

Holy moly that is one gorgeous baby belly!!!

Sorry about the diagnosis, but it does seem like you're in good hands.

Hang in there - you're almost there!!!

You look great! Mini looks like he is growing just fine. I agree with you not doing the test again. Hope the finger sticks aren't too bad.

You look great! Love the belly!

As far as the test... sorry about having to deal with that.. but I agree with not having to go through all that again!

Chas said...

Are you serious? They lost them...that's terrible. Good grief. Well, at least you're past that part and moving on to the next step.

JJ said...

Grr, my comment was eaten!

Im waving to Mini in your cute belly=)
Im so sorry about the test Farah-hope the finger pricks dont hurt too much!

Jackie said...

You are so zen! I might have completely lost it. I guess blood glucose monitoring can only be helpful and perhaps you'll discover that you are quite healthy and without GD after all!

Polka Dot said...

Oh my goodness ... you've really popped! go go belly!

Heather said...

OH!! Your baby bump is just so perfect! It is lovely!

Cibele said...

LOOK AT THIS CUTE BELLY!!!!!!!!!

gracechild said...

bummer! bummer for the test! but the beautiful belly makes it all worth it. Stay strong Farah. The finish line is in sight now

Adriane said...

MAN - I can't believe they lost your 2 middle draws. What a bunch of crap. I hope the appt tomorrow goes well. (I would have chosen to move forward instead of repeating the test, too!)

Great belly shots!! Mini is growing!!!

Elaine said...

10 more weeks, and you'll be replacing those belly pics with baby pics! YAY!!!!!

Dreamer4agift said...

You're lookin' so adorable:) Like I said before, I'm sorry about the test, but I'm very proud of you for not letting it ruin this wonderful experience.

Diana said...

oh no! that really sucks. good luck with the special diet and all. cant believe they lost your draws! ugh!

Mel said...

That sucks about the testing... whatever, though. You are going to be just fine, you only have to deal with it for a few more weeks. Keep thinking positively!!
Beautiful belly!!
*hugs*

Courtney said...

I am so mad that they lost your lab work! That is just not even fair!!! I hope that the new diet and the testing aren't too much hassle. Can you send the office your grocery bill just to call it even?

Love, love, love that new belly picture! Your little boy is almost fully cooked. :)

missedconceptions said...

Welcome to my world! I don't have to do the blood draws (yet). Instead I am on a low-carb diet (how come all the stuff I like is full of carbs?) and then I have to repeat the dreaded test in a few weeks. Ugh.

It is only for a little while longer, though, and for a good cause, right? I want he-beastie to be healthy, and that is the best motivation in the world.

Katie said...

I can't frickin' believe they lost those labs! What the heck?!

And I am sorry that you will have to endure the finger pricks, but at least you will get more peeks at Mini.

You look amazing!

Barb said...

Hey! Where's the usual shirt!

I'm sorry about the GTT. sigh at the doctors' offices who don't read charts and don't do things properly and on and on....

Meghan said...

Well that just stinks....they mess up and you're the one who has to deal with it...no fair (yikes, how whiny does that make me sound??)

Love the belly though. Mini's getting nice and strong!

My_Herstory said...

You look beautiful mumma!

Kristen said...

Oh, no, I'm sorry about the diagnosis. I don't blame you for not wanting to go through that test a second time.

Loving the belly! Mini will be here before you know it - YAY! XOXO
