Sara - Congrats again on the birth of those two beauties! Sounds like they are doing well, and it's great that you are being released. I know you'll still be spending most of your time at the hospital until they get to go home where they belong, but at least it means you're healing well.
Newbie - Yes, we are so close in due dates! I didn't think the GD screener was too bad, if that's what you're taking. It's the one hour test. I've heard of some people who make all of their patients do the 3 hour no matter what. I'm on to the 3 hour on Saturday.
Babyhopeful - Great job on the diaper deals! I've already gotten pretty stocked up using great deals and coupons....since it's something that won't go bad. I haven't bought any wipes yet though, because I'm afraid that even in a sealed package they might dry out if I buy them too far ahead of time. We've had to dogma lot of adjusting at my house to prepare for the nursery too. That room was our main storage area, and I usually put my off-season clothes in that closet, so it forced me to finally get rid of some....which was loooong overdue!
Good luck at your anatomy scan this week. I was so nervous for mine, but I loved how detailed it was when it finally came.
Reapage - I know I already commented on your second opinion on the other board, but I'm still so glad you have that reassurance!
Furbabymom - I don't blame you for considering starting your leave early. I. Sure your OB would agree. Making it through a school day is no joke, and I'm not even at the end like you yet!
Hello to everyone else! I know this board can be kind of slow, but I'm guessing that some of our old friends are still checking in occasionally.
AFM....It's been a rough couple of days. I shared on the ttc board that I failed my glucose screening test, so now I have to do the 3 hour test on Saturday. Considering I didn't eat before the screener, there's a strong chance I actually have GD so I'm trying to mentally prepare myself. I know from Furbabymom that it's not the end of the world, but it still worries me. Then today at my growth scan, they found a "disturbance" in my placenta. I knew it wasn't good when the perinatal specialist came in, because I usually just see the techs there and they show the dr and come back to let me go. He referred to it as a hole at first, and then switched to "disturbance." He said the baby is measuring perfectly right now, and that was a good sign, but that over time it could affect his growth if the hole doesn't clot on its own or gets bigger. Then when I mentioned that I failed my glucose screening (since that can lead to a bigger baby) he looked a little more concerned but said, "Well let's see how you do on the tolerance test." Since there's basically nothing we can do about it, it will just mean more monitoring. I go back in two weeks for another scan and a NST. I'm basically making a day of it, because that's my next OB appointment too.
On a lighter note....baby boy was moving all over the whole time, making it difficult to get good measurements of course, but then when they tried to do a 3D pic of his face he put his arms up to cover it and refused to move. We tried everything, but he wouldn't budge. I said he's just like his daddy, who HATES having any pictures taken! We have one pic that shows just his mouth and nose peeking out, and I swear it's a look of total defiance already! I'm really going to have my hands full with this kid!
