My glucose screening came back elevated so I had to do the 3-hr diagnostic test. Thankfully jb took the day off work and accompanied us - otherwise I wouldn't have made it. I don't know how I thought that I could fast all night, take Leo on public transportation to a blood lab, and then entertain him there for 4+ hours while they slowly drained my blood while I was hungry, moody and tired.
The good news is that the test came back negative - so no gestational diabetes (yay!), but I'm still trying to focus on low-glycemic index foods to give my body a break since it does seem to be a little more sluggish than usual at processing simple carbs. Not as much fun as my preferred sweet tooth indulgent diet plan, but I'm not willing to risk my and bug's health.

Leo is still pretty excited about the prospect of the little brother/sister. He recently tried to feed bug a sweet potato fry through my belly - too cute. He is also generous with the kisses to my belly and will sing bug songs.

Basically, I think I can hang in there another 10 (8? maybe?) weeks and am really looking forward to being a family of four.
