Sometimes when the baby is sleeping, I just plumb forget I'm pregnant. Now that has got to be pure craziness, or life with a 31/2 year old.
Smeta, for the me the arguments against the glucose tolerance test are mainly my own psychological resistance to blindly obeying what they(the conventional medical people) deem as routine testing. It's not that I have such a pure diet that I don't consume any sugar(I just had an ice cream cone
). I don't think consuming the amount of sugar in the glucola is really harmful, but if the test comes back positive, the next step is to do a 3 hr gtt, and if that is still out of whack, they have you follow a diet. Well, I choose just to watch my diet, and just make my own decisions. Besides, they do the urine dipstick test for glucose, and if I ever have glucose spilling into my urine, I'll be the one to pursue further testing. It's all part of getting into that vbac frame of mind. It's takes alot of strength to prepare to give birth when you've been told you're not able to have a vaginal birth(cpd, ftp, crap). Anyway, I just advocate that all of us do what we feel is the right thing for ourselves, and our babies, that way, there will be no regrets when it's all over.
Kaje62, I did find a doula. She seems really good. Very confident, and just bossy enough that I know she'll be a strong advocate for me, and she'll give me a kick in the butt should I need it. I can't wait to get into labor. I plan on staying home until the last minute. My ultimate dream is to show up at the hospital, give birth within...hmmm...10 minutes, get a free meal, and go home 4 hours later. Dreams can come true.(Please God
