Of course, I failed the glucose test and now have ‘class’ every Wednesday afternoon all afternoon at the hospital re: controlling my gestational diabetes. And yes, that comes with a home testing kit for daily pricking (oh joy).
But the test I most wanted to pass was the echocardiogram on the girls. And we did. Finally, an appointment that didn’t inspire a whole new set of appointments. Hearing the words, “We likely don’t need to see you again.” was sweet nectar to this tired mommy-to-be. Both hearts look fine and the blood flow is excellent, and although Baby B’s heart is squished and slightly displaced, it is doing a good job pumping life blood through her. I just still have a very good feeling about all this. I believe strongly that after all the tough times, the end result will be good for her. But then again, I have to believe that for my sanity, don’t I?
But yes. I think I’ve said before that I have never failed as many tests as I have during this pregnancy. So nice to get a passing grade for a change!
