You have gestational diabetes... JUST KIDDING!!!

Yes, that's right! No joke! The endocrinologist had my blood drawn at my last appointment to have some tests done and it appears that my blood glucose levels have been so good for the past four weeks because I DON'T HAVE GESTATIONAL DIABETES AFTER ALL!!! It's gone! Seriously! So instead of losing 3 lbs. I could have been gaining weight, but it was so much more fun to avoid carbs and fast for 2 hours at a time. Wooohooooo! Perhaps it would have been best for me to do the 3 hour glucose test BEFORE they sent me to the endocrinologist. Oh well, I have been feasting on carbs all day and if feels great. I no longer feel deprived. I'm full and healthy and it's so wonderful to eat again!!! Tomorrow morning I'm going to have french toast and sausage for breakfast with a huge glass of juice and a cup of hot chocolate with whipped cream. SWEET!!! HAPPY HOLIDAYS EVERYONE!!!

OMG, you are KIDDING me!!?!! I can't believe you went through all that deprivation for nothing! Oh well, at least you get to go crazy now. That french toast had to have tasted AWESOME.

and re: the short arms/legs thing, the exact same thing happened to a friend of mine--a growth scan at 38 weeks showed the baby's legs were measuring short for dates, so she was sent for a super-duper 3D ultrasound--and everything was FINE. I'm sure Aislinn is just fine too. :)

Man, that must have been tough - but it ended sweetly. Good for you! Just don't overdo eating sweets now. Happy Holidays!
