Doc appt's

So I had my 28 week appt last friday and my 1 hour glucose test. At the appt she gave me my order to schedule the growth ultrasound which I was really excited about. I scheduled it for yesterday that way DH could be here to see her. (He leaves today for his week on the rig).

So yesterday morning I get a call from my doctor telling me that I failed the 1 hour glucose test. Cut off was 139 and my number was 142. So that means I have to take the 3 hour test which I will be doing this Thursday morning. A little nervous about this because of all the blood they have to draw from me. I know its not that much, but my doc also gave me the news that I am becoming anemic. So that doesn't help any. Especially since I have been taking an extra iron pill my whole pregnancy because I always had low iron that I wasn't even allowed to donate blood unless I took my pills to get my level up. So now I have to take 2 pills a day to see if that helps. I've also had dizzy spells in the past where standing in the heat gets to me. So the fact that I am anemic and they have to take blood from my on Thursday makes me nervous because I am a Matron of honor in my friends wedding on Friday. The Ceremony is outside in this Tx heat. I am seriously worried about fainting or something. I am just going to do my best to drink tons of water and not overdue myself.

Anyways back to yesterday. We got to see Madilyn at her growth ultrasound! It was awesome:) I guessed she would be about 3lbs 2oz and DH guessed 3lbs 5 oz. At our anatomy scan she was measuring above the 90th percentile! And she still is:) She is a little chunker butt lol She was weighing 3lbs and 14oz! Almost 4 lbs of baby inside me at 28 weeks 3 days. She was measuring about 32 weeks along. So it will be interesting to see what my doc says about all this at my next appt next week. I am now going every 2 weeks to see her. Here is a pic of her and then a pic of me to look at our faces...She has my fat cheeks and chin it looks like:)

Love it!!

On a plus note, I had a half day at work yesterday and I have this Thur and Fri off for my gtt and my friends wedding. So pretty much just a 2 1/2 day work week. Hopefully my friends wedding and her activities will keep me busy and not thinking that my husband is away at work for a week. Which sucks! But he will come back just in time for my next appt and my baby shower;)
Here is my 28 week bump...
