Birthdays and a Show

At 6:45 am, tomorrow, I will be standing in line to have my blood sucked out of me for the fasting 1 hr glucose test. After a bit of a mix -up (have I mentioned how awful my dr's office is about keeping their stuff straight), My MFM requested my OB's office to do a 1 hour fasting glucose test. This means, I have to go, have my blood drawn, then drink the nasty drink. Wait an hour, then get poked again for the 1 hours drawn. I was told that the results could take 7 days .. boy the suspense will be killing me. I have been testing my glucose lvl with my monitor off and on throughout the pregnancy - it seems to be ok. We will see what the test indicates versus my handheld.

We celebrated my mothers birthday tonight. Since she made me dinner on my birthday, I repaid the favor. She wanted spaghetti and a cake. Simple and easy. So I made homemade spaghetti sauce (i actually have never done that - She always does) and a birthday cake. My BIL's birthday is tomorrow, So I told him the dinner/cake was for him too.

My dad's birthday is Sunday - birthdays birthdays birthdays all over. He wants a steak from a certain restaurant, So I assume Monday or Tuesday, we will take my parents there.

I appreciate the support/comments. It does really mean alot to me- I know that I have been very dry and boring and I appreciate those that are sticking through it.

A funny/Holy Tantrum MT moment - The Show:
Last weekend, we went to St. Augustine Beach for an impromptu vacation to see my sister who was also on vacation. They have Outlets... YAH shopping! I wanted to get MT a pair of shoes. I have shoes but none seem to fit him yet and he is a walker and really needs a pair of shoes ... He has a wide, flat foot so i wanted a sandal type shoe that would be easy to get on/off. Found something similar, tried to put his foot in it. He would curl up his toes and scream in demand that I stop. My parents were with me trying to help me convince my 13 month old that shoes are fun .... NOT going to happen - after a very hefty fight and 3 adults, I managed to get him in a pair of sandals. I put him down to walk in them and you would have thought I was making him walk in flippers (you ever tried to walk in flippers). He was NOT having it, after 30 seconds of repetitively turning his ankles over, flapping the shoes and screaming, He threw himself on the ground hitting his head on the shoe racks, rolling around and screaming in protest .... My blood was boiling ... I was THAT mom, with THAT Kid .. How embarrassing. We immediately took the shoes off his feet and proceeded out the door .. I was Furious..... I have decided now, that all punishment will require shoes ... If i can ever buy him a pair! Welcome to toddlerhood ;)

good luck with the glucose test. As for the shoe, Lyla is the opposite, she always wants to have shoes on, sometimes I cant only that them off after she fall asleep. I guess that is a girl thing

It absolutely shouldn't take 7 days. You should be able to find out the same day. They ahve to test it right away. Sorry you have to go through it and hope your results are good.

Congrats on the pregnancy and the 1 year old! (Who doesn't like shoes!) :) I am halfway caught up from my hiatus from blogging and just love all the pics of your beautiful family. You all look so happy!

Why do they hate the shoe shopping so? Kids!! Maybe someday you can find him some :) Have a great week!

Jill, Mommy of Tanner and Josie, our Clomid baby. :o) said...

HEE HEE HEE! Thank you for the laugh!!! Josie won't even keep socks on, we haven't even looked at shoes!

Good luck with the glucose! The one thing I don't miss about being pregnant. :o)

Good luck with the test, you should be fine...

MT will get used to wear shoes, it happened with R and it got better each time.

Uhmmmm, homemade spaghetti sauce, I am hungry already!!!... Do you mind sharing the recipe?

Malloryn said...

Good luck with the glucose test. I can't imagine not wanting to wear shoes, too funny!

AJ's mommy said...

I hope your glucose test goes well! Thinking of you. And yeah, I did find out the same day on mine??? Maybe your place sends theirs off somewhere?

As far as the shoes, please don't get mad but I was laughing on how you told that story :)

Harry mainly likes to chew on his shoes, which he does with them still on his feet.

Good luck with the glucose test!

Good luck with the glucose test!!! I'm so sorry you've got to do that it's the worst! I LOVE that all punishments will now involve shoes, that is just hilarious!

Thinking of you! ((hugs))

When I put shoes on Elizabeth, she acts like they are made from cement.

Sarah said...

I've been reading you for a while, and had to comment this time. I laughed when I read this post because I wrote about the exact same embarassing tantrum a few weeks ago. http://babymakesthre.blogspot.com/2009/06/terribleones.html

MT is darling...good luck with the test!

Courtney said...

Seriously hoping that you passed your test with flying colors! AND, a very belated happy birthday to you!!!

We haven't encountered the shoe battle just yet, but I am starting to feel the need to put shoes on E now so it is bound to happen.
