Hello 3rd Trimester


Well I'm now 28 weeks pregnant and have entered the 3rd trimester.  Where did the time go?  Seriously though, this pregnancy has flown by.  I guess because I'm so busy and am not contantly reading about  pregnancy like I did with Lilly.  And interestingly, this pregnancy has been almost identical to mine with Lilly.  I've always heard to expect a different experience for different genders.  This is a good thing though, because it's been fairly smooth and easy.

With that said, today I go in for my gestational diabetes test.  I had it with Lilly, so I'm expecting to have it this time too.  Luckily I had the lightest case ever and could still pretty much eat whatever (just not a ton of it) and still keep my sugar levels fine.  I don't wish to prick my finger 4 times a day again though....  But I've been preparing by eating as much halloween candy as possible the past few weeks so that I don't feel left out (poor me) and I just made a big bowl of my Granny's bomb diggity chicken salad (which I admit I had to google "how to boil an egg" to make).  I'm prepared.  Wish me luck!  (So that I can eat lots of this.)


And random, but as much as I love that incredible cake, I love those gorgeous mugs more.  I'm thinking I know a certain talented blogger who just might be able to make them for me..... hint hint?

*UPDATE*
I PASSED the test!  Woohoo!  Now accepting pretty desserts ;)

Congrats on passing the test! I'm due to deliver my first baby this Thursday (or sooner, which would be great), and was "at risk" for diabetes during my pregnancy as well. I can sympathize with you, and celebrate your passing the test as well--I did too, which was great for this sweets-lovin' mama! Glad you're feeling good--you're looking great too!
