Just wanted to let you know that I do not have GD. . . just big babies growing inside of me. Which, as I said before, makes sense since I'm 5'10'', weighed 9.5 lbs. when I was born, and I'm "small" for my family! The doctors are still concerned that I won't be able to carry the twins much past 36 weeks, but at least if they're born early, they'll still be good sized (estimated weights were 4 lbs 7 oz, and 5 lbs 4 oz at 31 weeks).

I wish I had trusted my instincts and not gone through with the glucose test. Oh well.

Thanks for all the encouragement!


Mindfully mothering SIX kids (ages 4, 5, 7, 8, 11 & 11) in a small house with a lot of love.
