Unofficial results

The unofficial results are in!
I had my 1-hour glucose tolerance test today. I had my blood drawn at the one hour mark and the tube of blood will be sent to the lab, but because I am lacking in the patience department I also brought my own blood sugar reader and tested myself as soon as I got in my car which was about 3 minutes after the tube was drawn from the lab. The result on my reader was 128! Some doctors say 130 and below is normal, some say 140 and below - can't remember what the cutoff that my midwife goes by, but I'm thinking I might have made the cutoff either way :-) We still have to wait on the official results which could take a couple of days and I'll be sure to update you.
I am now on to the bi-weekly dr visits and in one month I will be going into my midwife's office 2 times a week for NST's (non-stress tests) that will continue 2 times/week throughout the rest of my pregnancy! So, I'll be in her office a lot for the rest of the summer, but I couldn't be happier. I'm thrilled with all the monitoring and it's just a nice comfort for me.

Thanks for all your prayers!
