I have to get the glucose test done next time I see our midwives. I was NOT happy about it, I asked what my options were and she basically said I didn't have any, that they needed the data because a. my age b. I have had big babies (how that is relevant is beyond me, and my largest baby DS2 was 9.8... not exactly huge if you ask me! My sister had much larger 10.3 being her last and biggest) c. my grandfather had diabetes (again, I am baffled by that logic, since he was in his 50's when he got diabetes and had a horrendous diet his entire life, so obviously that was the culprit). I had the test with all three of my other pregnancies and always passed with flying colors, so I am not sure why we need to do it. But, she didn't feel like she would waver on it, so I am gritting my teeth and going along. She even tried to make me feel better by saying the drink was organic, and didn't have food coloring in it. Bah! Whatever... I have no doubts that I will pass it, so that's not my issue. I was trying to have a minimal intervention pregnancy, and opted out of all the other normal testings, and yet I have to do this one. Sorry for being a little ranty.. It's been bugging me!
On to a much happier topic. My baby shower is this coming Sunday! Yay!! I am so excited, and MIL and I have been doing all kinds of stuff together. We painted birdhouses, made tissue paper pom poms, a banner, and got everything pretty much ready. I have to say, I am so glad to have a nice MIL that's easy to get along with, my last one was a mental institutions dream patient, so this has been fantastic! My dad is making the cake (he's a phenomenal baker), and I have a professional cake maker doing all the fondant accents, little baby bird and a mama bird, daises and polka dots. Should be pretty awesome!
I do have to say... I am not really looking forward to December. It's going to be balls to the walls busy and I may just loose my cookies at some point! To save on money we decided (or I should say I volunteered) to make goodies (cookies, mint brownies, peanut butter balls, etc..) for all of our siblings instead of buying gifts, but obviously this means I will baking my brains out the week before Christmas, and unfortunately DP can't cook or bake so it will be in my hands to keep us fed on top of making all the goodies... Oh it's beginning to sound scarier and scarier!!
