I am over a week behind on posting this. Things have gotten a little crazy around the house with AC tearing up all the carpet in our house and redoing the hardwood floors that were underneath. But anyway, Saturday May 20th my Mom, sister and best friend had a baby shower for me at my parents house. The decorations were gorgeous and I was thrilled with how it all came together so nicely. Guests were supposed to arrive at noon but the first guests didn’t start arriving until around 10 min after. I was getting a little nervous to say the least. But everyone eventually did show up and we had a great time playing games and opening gifts. My dad even went overboard and had purchased $10 giftcards to give to everyone in their gift bags! My Aunt S was in town from NY and had baked the cake, cookies, and most of the food as well, she was awesome. Overall it was a great shower 😀
Wednesday was my Glucose Tolerance test. I was so grateful that is was after my shower just in case I had to cut out sweets or something. I have such a huge sweet tooth. I had to take the morning of off work for it, but I am glad I did since the appointment started at 9:30am and I wasn’t finished until 11am. I got the fruit punch flavored glucose drink and was expecting the worst but in reality, it was actually almost good! That probably just goes to show just how much I enjoy really sweet things. While I waited the hour, I did a urine test then went back and got to hear baby girls heartbeat, which is still nice and strong. After the hour was up, I had 3 viles of blood taken because they tested for a whole bunch of other things besides just my glucose tolerance. I didn’t get my test results until 2 days later but I am happy to say I passed! No gestational diabetes for me! I was so relieved, I really thought I was going to have it because of PCOS. My next appointment isn’t until June 15th, were I guess I will really hear the doctor say I don’t need to be on Metformin for the rest of my pregnancy! Still not sure how I feel about it, but I am just going to try and enjoy it and not stress about anything going wrong.
This weekend I decided to take on the task of washing all of the baby clothes we got from the shower since my MIL is throwing me a shower June 10th and I don’t want the amount of laundry to get backed up even further. I had 2 loads of baby clothes from this shower alone! Which I am so grateful for, we barely had any ourselves and now we are mostly all set.
I hope you all had a great Memorial Day Weekend!
