HI everyone, I'm happy to see the board has a new CL and im sure she is doing a wonderful job!!!

Anyway, since this is my second baby after turning 40 I was just told that I failed my 1 hour test. Which totally sucks because now I have to go sit for 3 hours>>> OMG sitting for 1 hour waiting sucked, cant imagine 3.. any way, I figure that Ill stay away from all sugary things and wait to see the results of this test...

I got some cool photos of the baby in 3D so now I got to see how beautiful he is and im pretty sure that he is healthy and normal. which is a relief and I didnt have to have needles stuck in my belly to find it out for sure.

OK you just named all my favorite foods.. did you know that when you are poor or have a huge family... all those starchy, carb foods are the most affordable.. im almost 32 weeks.. just take the little fat baby asap... out of me.. give up milk... no way.. you can only eat so many tums... personally I had milk less then 12 hours before I was tested the last time.. so.. I think that is why its off... that was my second 1 hour the first one I passed just fine.

as for sitting there for 3 hours.. if it gets to be too much... Ill tell them I feel sick or faint.. and ask for a place to lay down..forget that sitting in a waiting room in uncomfortable chair for that long... or my doc can forget it..

he is concerned because my last baby was 9 pounds, without the GD.. heck that was small for their family.. his brothers kids were over 10 pounds...

thanks a lot.. I thought the ultrasound image was like totally cool.. the features you ccan see are totally amazing.

I dont think I have it myself.. I mean I feel great... and other than the baby measuring a week larger geez.. its a boy.. supposed to be bigger..... dont want no skinny minni boy... I had my 6.10 pouund boys and thats cause I smoked I wonder how big they would have been if I didnt

Ill check out the gd board... thought im one of those people that if they had to take meds to save their life.. Id be dead.. thank god I dont have high blood pressure.
