I have a hard time believeing that I wrote that post only 4 days ago.
This has been the LOOOOOOONGEST week ever, and truthfully – It’s not over, yet……
Tuesday I was part of a pre-conference all day meeting that was pretty fun.Â Wednesday I was able to make it in to see Chris, although he was a bit backed up, and I didn’t get to see him as much as I would have liked to.Â I got home from seeing him, and had a message waiting for me on my home phone……..from my doctor’s office……the Obstetrical Doctor……telling me not to worry, just to call…………..
Yah Right!Â Those calls are almost NEVER good!Â So, I call back, but I know it’s about the gestational diabetes test that I took last week.Â YUP!Â I flunked the one hour test, and have to go inÂ for the 3 hour.
It oculd have been worse news.Â I could have had such bad levels that they would have just sent me to the gestational diabetes clinic, and we could have carried on from there.
Apparently, the cut off level is 7.8, and I was at an 8.4 – anything higher than a 10.3, and I would haveÂ had a direct pass to the clinic.Â So, I still have a chance at passing the 3 hour, although when I went in to pick up the requisition from the office yesterday, the nurse didn’t really think that would be the case.Â I’ll just have to show her……
So, I called my naturopath, to ask a few questions, and she has put me on some stuff that is supposed to level my blood sugar levels, and I’m back HARD CORE on the candida dietÂ cause it’s supposed to also stabilize blood sugar levels.Â So much fun – not!
I will admit that the news that I had flunked came at a not-so-fabulous time.Â I am doing okay emotionally.Â Not fabulous, but better than really bad!Â With everything else that is going on, this one more piece of news kinda pushed me over the edge and I had a bad night on Wednesday night.Â Kept obsessing about everything, and couldn’t sleep until after 2am.Â Nice, eh?Â Especially as I had to get up at 6:30am the next morning to take a shower before I started Thursday.
Thursday was a crazy busy day.Â Did a ton of running around, and had to drive into Langley to pick up the Meds from the Naturopath, and was supposed to pick up one thing from a Pharmacy, but I hit 3 different ones, and it wasn’t available at any of them.Â I had to blast home ’cause the kids were walking – at least that gave me a few extra minutes.Â It’s the difference between thinking that I have to go and pick them up around 2:30pm, or they come home around 3pm.Â Their schoool actually gets out at 2:48pm, but if you want a parking spot you have to come a bit early, and you have to factor in the driving time (even if it is only 3 minutes) – when they walk home – I don’t even have to think about them until they show up just after 3pm – that is soooooo nice!
So, last night after I gave a really lame attempt at getting the kids off to bed (Jon normally does the bedtime routine ’cause I hateÂ the 500 million stall tactics, and hove no patience at that point), I laid down with J to get him to settle down and go to sleep……..and I fell asleep!Â That’s not really a problem except for the fact that I’d told Xan that I’d come and lay with her for a minute as soon as J was asleep.Â Â I think I stalled her off until tonight!Â At least that what I remember from my end of the conversation, mind you I wouldnt’ bet he most reliable person to ask at that point ’cause I was mostly asleep.
I woke up feeling pretty good this morning.Â The kids got off to school, and I got ready for the day.Â I’ve been shopping this morning already, and visited Jon at theÂ conference.Â I’m home now – OBVIOUSLY – and am just finishing up a salad with some chicken on it, and have to get busy.
I have a bunch of stuff that I NEED to get done, and it has to be done either today or tomorrow.Â Â I should really just do it today to get it over and done with.Â I’ve been feeling more pregnant, and awkward as far as my body goes.Â I’m getting bigger, and am starting to feel a bit uncomfortable, but I’m not complaining…..too much!
I’ll be 29 weeks tomorrow, and am so excited to have made it this far.Â Only a bit longer and our sweet little boy will be here.Â I have an ultrasound on Tuesday, and it will be fun to get another peek at him.
Well, that’s my week so far.Â Hope you’ve all had a fabulous week, and have an even better weekend.
