30 weeks & appt. update

good morning **Yawn**...
So yesterday we were 30 weeks pregnant! :) We also had a dr's appt. where I had my glucose test done (the 1 hour)...
here's what went on... we got all that Josh needed to get done in Texarkana, done before my appt. since we knew we'd be there over an hour, so we got there on time, got checked in, went in, drank the nasty "hummingbird drink" (as i like to refer to it as that had to be red, which I usually can't tolerate red drinks for some reason), got my bp taken (which was good), my weight, NOT GOOD....gained 9 MORE lbs, so now i'm at 165 (which means i'm at the "only gain 25 lbs" mark that the dr. set), and then found out he was going to have to check me since I"m 30 weeks yeah....what an enjoyable day so far...

so, the dr. comes in FINALLY after spending FOREVER in the room next door, and says, "Hmm.. gained more weight than i wanted you to AGAIN and at this rate, if you keep gaining like this, you'll be 190 when u deliver and I don't want that." Great, neither DO I! OMG... so, he's got me on STRICT 1800 a day calorie diet and i'm TRYING to walk more.

After he checked EVERYTHING, all was great w/ Shelby! No dialation (which is great), tummy's measuring right on track, baby's heartbeat was strong and great, etc...

THEN... after FINALLY gettin outta there, we had to wait 15 more min. for my glucose test results so we did... went back there and he said it needed to be UNDER 140 and low and behold... mine was RIGHT ON 140... so the nurse went and asked him what to do since it wasn't high, or low it was just right on and he says, "Just have her take it again when she comes in 2 weeks." UGH!! ARE U KIDDIN ME!?

AND YES, i now go every 2 weeks! I go back on the 16th for my appt and re-do 1 hr glucose test.

UGH.... OH... AND he asked me if i have had any swelling and i told him only sometimes after a LONG DAY at work and it's only in the evening or if i've been busy all day and he says, "Well, don't wear your rings anymore b/c you can either wear them and have the hope that they come off one of those days or the possibility of having them cut off." Geese!! So, i'm wearin this HUGE cocktail ring Josh bought me years ago and that's it. Josh laughed and said, "I did good!" haha

This was my "Bad Day" yesterday.... i'm ok today but still a little upset...

Aw!
We are so sorry about that! But we are praying so that everything go well in the next appt!

We're really happy with your comments. You have no idea of how much you mean to us!

Mom is visiting my grandpa, he is 91 yeas old and is kinda sick, so she has to keep a close eye on him, witch is hard since he lives in another town and is a little far from here. Please pray for us.

What great news about your church! A great blessing from God! May your cup overflow with the precious anointing of God!!

We love you in Christ!
