FAILED my glucose test... :(

13 week appointment today.  Went well except for the part where I failed the 1 hour glucose test.  ARGH!  I am so frustrated.  I am going in for the 3 hour next week (torture!).  I had to do early glucose last pregnancy and another at 28 weeks and failed both times.  Luckily I passed the 3 hour both times.

I am so nervous and extremely frustrated.  Praying for a good result next week. 

I got to hear baby's heartbeat for the first time and the doctor even invited my 3 kiddos and hubby back to hear it.  He was so bummed he might miss hearing it because we didn't have anyone to watch the kids today.  Heart rate was 152 and strong!  Now its starting to feel real.  :smileyhappy:

My girls have been all over the map. My first was always 140 - 150s. The second was higher, always 170s. The third was 160 - 170s. So I guess it could go either way! :smileyhappy:

I read something once that said the heart rate often correlates to their temperament which seems to be true in our case. The one with the slower heart rate is so laid back and other two are very high-maintenance. Ha! Probably all wives tales, but fun to speculate. :smileyhappy:
