Hey ladies! I got my lab work done work today. And I must say the sugary drink was not that bad. I had to drink it in a 5min time frame. Then wait for an hour in the waiting room. So I will get my results back May 9th when I have my 28week appt. Also I have been struggling with extreme insomnia. I can go to sleep fine but I can't stay asleep. I get maybe 5hrs a night on a good night. And on top of that I am now experiencing leg cramps and swelling. Oh the joys of pregnancy! (sarcasm implied) However, Miss. Xyla seems to be doing just fine, moving alot. Well that's all that's going on with me. Hope everyone is well and babies are healthy!

Good luck with your glucose test results! I never had a problem with that drink, to me it tastes like Orange soda. haha

Sorry you are dealing with insomnia and leg cramps. I can fall asleep as well but Im not staying asleep and it sucks. HOWEVER!! I am happy to hear miss Xyla is doing great!!

Glad you had a good appointment, but I'm sorry about the insomnia. I'm right there with you. I don't think I've ever slept this little, and I'm sooooo tired. I also have no trouble falling asleep, but I wake up soon after midnight and feel like I hardly sleep after that. Did your Dr/midwife have any advice about what you can do?

I also have trouble staying asleep. I keep waking up for like 90min-2 hours. It's so frustrating.
I am getting swollen legs too. I can see a nice indentation on my ankles in the morning when I take off my socks to shower. I need to be better about drinking water and watching salt. I do seem to swell up every pregnancy though, so I am not super worried about this.
Glad the test went well. Inever have issues with the drink either, just tastes like soda to me.

Glad the appt went well, I had fruit punch this time instead of orange and it tasted much better than the orange one to me . I have had some swelling as well when I think i can go out shopping for hours on end!!! Glad baby Xyla is doing well

No I haven't had a chance to talk to my OB. It's only been happening for about a week. I will mention it at my next appt though.
