Well, today I had my 1 hour GTT. I really hate that drink. And I'm a little worried about failing because 1. I failed last time, 2. I'm higher risk for GD with twins and 3. I felt so, so sick afterwards and still have yet to recover from that feeling. They also did the hemoglobin test. I'm assuming I'll hear from them tomorrow if either is a problem.
Urine was normal, blood pressure good, weight good, etc. I am measuring 35 weeks! No wonder I feel so horrible! With all of my other babies, I was measuring just 1 week ahead. I now start with 2 week visits. Fun! Also, MFM wants me to do a 24 hour urine collection so I had to go over to the hospital to pick up my big orange jug. I'm supposed to start that tomorrow. And then when I drop it off, I will have blood taken as well. This pregnancy has been fine but last 2 pregnancies, I ended up with high blood pressure so I guess they're just making sure.
I also signed my tubal consent. It has to be signed 2 months prior to the procedure so I wanted to make sure that was done. To be honest, I felt a little pang of sadness as I signed it. I really have no desire for more kids so it doesn't make sense. Maybe just the end of an era type thing. Now let's just hope that these babies stay cooking until at least February 13 if I end up needing a c-section. If I deliver vaginally, I don't really care. Dh will be on his way for the big V then.
I signed my paperwork for my tubal on my last appt too. I'm totally freaked out about it lol I know I dont want more kids after this, but im afraid someday I will change my mind it's a totally irrational fear but it's still there lol.
I'm glad ur appt went well that ur pass ur glucose!!

The urine collection is just a baseline protein thing. So far, my blood pressure has been good. But my last 2 pregnancies, I had high blood pressure. It was much worse with my youngest dd. I had all the signs of pre-e but never spilled any protein. They really should have done the 24 hour thing. And I'm assuming measuring 35 weeks is fine since the dr didn't say anything. I've only gained 5 lbs so far so it's not like my weight is out of control or anything. Babies are growing well I guess.
