Thoughts on Turning 30

Not me, but the baby! I am 30 weeks--yipee! Next week brings single digits, which I always look forward to with great anticipation. I thought I'd share with you the greatest discovery that I have made this pregnancy--Motherhood Secret Fit Maternity pants. If you haven't tried them, you gotta! They are full panel pants, which I have NEVER EVER worn before, but they are the most comfortable things ever. Every preggo should have a pair.

I also had the very fortunate experience (dripping sarcasm here) of taking the 3 hour glucose tolerance test because I failed my 1 hour test. (meaning my blood sugar levels were too high) I "passed" the 3 hour test, but just barley. I was only 1 point away from being diagnosed with gestational diabetes. So, I'm glad that I was under, but it still makes me a little nervous that I was so close. One of the side effects (is that the right term?) of gestational diabetes is BIG babies, and I'd really like to avoid having another 9 pounder if I can, so I've been trying to follow the diabetic diet. I have a Dr. appt in a few days and hopefully she'll be able to give me a little more guidance. But other than that things are great and we are excited for this little one to get here!

You look great Tara! I am also SO happy to be in the single digits now days too! May just can't come soon enough for me. Sorry about the 3 hour GTT! That's awful-but I am glad that you passed! Hopefully you don't get another 9 pounder! Good luck these next couple months!

You are way too cute pregnant and way too small to ever carry or deliver a nine pounder!
