Glucose… FAIL

son of a….

yesterday seemed so good too.

AJ and i were having fun chatting in the waiting room, we did our usual witty banter with the nurse.

i was feeling great about this.

we wait our requisite time…

and then the Doc comes in with “that look”… I didn’t pass the Glucose Test.

so i asked what my score was.



(insert unhappy mama, here).

and that’s where the appointment took a turn.

from there, the Doc took the measurement then set up the Doppler to hear The Bumpit’s heart beat.

Another funny look, and “oops, i heard a few skips in there…”


so then we had the pleasure (?) of being hooked up to the fancy heart monitor for 20 minutes while i tried not to panic and AJ kept reading me the changing heart rates.





i start to think about what appointments i will need to cancel if she admits us to the hospital tonight…






apparently all was fine.

so i am trying to look on the bright side.
1) now i get to eat a candy bar for three days straight before the big, fat, fancy 3-hour glucose test.
2) we got to spend 20 uninterrupted minutes just listing to the Bumpit’s heart, breath, movements and kicks…

yea Bumpit!

  1. Really? They can’t like just bump you down one! Oh lord..Katie I’m going to be right there with you-I just know it. TALK about freaking out re: heartbeat. I’m so glad that everything is fine & that you got a chance to listen to the little one. But for petes sake!

  2. Oh shucks! My heart went out to you as I read this, it can be so agonizing. Based on the numbers, I’m guessing BOY for sure!
