Thank you thank you thank you for the lovely recommendations!  We're off tomorrow for the 'moon, can't wait!  I'm looking forward to a couple good books, some time in the pool, some good relaxation- maybe in a warm tub, and my B! (and throw in some thank you cards for good measure if I'm feelin' it)

I just had to update to say that we got to see the kids again today! I love these days! They both look beautiful- growing, growing.  We didn't take measurements, that'll be next time, but all looks well.  We even got a 3D pic of little lady cuz she just happened to turn right before the end to show her lovely apparently at this point they'll throw in the 3D images if they think they can get a good shot. She's so cute and not too alien-like at all (those 3D images look a lil creepy sometimes).  You can really see her little lips and her cute nose! Other than that, it was a standard appointment.  Had the FFN test again, should hear tomorrow how it went (I had a lot of Braxton Hicks yesterday...I think I was dehydrated the day before and it caught up to me, so I was a bit worried). Cervix is still very much closed and I'm always happy to hear that.

Finally- the best news ever at this appointment...I PASSED the gestational diabetes test!!!  I was so worried...and it's not like I passed with flying colors or anything.  Get this- the cut off is 130 to have to take the 3 hour test (which I was so dreading)...and I got a 129! BOOYAH!  I feel like I cheated or something, and I love it.

...I celebrated by stopping and grabbing some sour candies and a bag of peanut m&m's on the way home...nice One Day, nice.

My iron levels were a bit low, so the instructions are to eat more meat and spinach and stuff...and did you know that getting some vitamin C along with your iron helps you absorb it more?  Yeah, meat and oranges don't sound great to everyone but bring it on.

I hope everyone has a fab weekend!

  1. I was borderline anemic for a long time, so I used to do steak & eggs with OJ for breakfast, or an omelet with steamed spinach, feta, tomatoes, and avocado in it with OJ. Both sneaky ways to get the OJ with the iron.

    Have fun on your babiesmoon!!
