Dodged a Bullet!

When I woke up this morning I saw this nightmare on the counter.

Now you guys know I love me some chocolate milk, but whole chocolate milk? I grew up on skim milk so the thought of ever drinking whole milk is just nauseating to me. Yes, I realize I'll have to suck it up and buy whole milk for little man when he's a toddler, but I have some time to psych myself up for that. I remember on a few occasions growing up when we were nearly out of skim and my mother poured me half a glass of skim and then mixed in some 2% (my brother and dad liked it). I could tell just by looking at it and flat out refused to drink it! Ant said he liked the whole chocolate milk and that it didn't taste too much different from it's lighter cousins. To each his own I suppose!

Also, I have been staring at this for the better part of two days and I'm sick of it!

That damn semi truck parked in our parking lot! Normally we have a nice view of some trees, but not anymore. Hopefully it'll move soon. And remember when I said we never had a problem with parking at our condo? As you can see, our cars are usually the only two parked on our side of the lot. At night there are maybe one or two more, but that's it!

Dodged a Bullet!

I got another phone call from my OB's office this morning. I let it go to voice mail and they said to give them a call back. Uh.Oh. I was dreading calling them back. I just knew that I had gestational diabetes. I mean, on Tuesday they told me they would only call me with my one hour test results if I failed, so I assumed they had the same protocol for the three hour test.

WRONG!! I passed! What a relief that was! So no gestational diabetes for me, thank goodness. Since trying to limit my sodium intake because of my hypertension, I admit I've probably been eating too much sugar lately so I was scared that I caused myself to have GD. Even though I did pass the three hour test was kind of a wake up call to eat better. I think I've been pretty good about eating fruits and veggies throughout my pregnancy, but there is always room for improvement and I need to do a better job of picking lower sugar snacks.

And just because this post isn't random enough, here's this week's belly shot!

27 weeks 6 days

I'm really looking pregnant these days! And yes, I posed in front of the semi truck on purpose :).

  1. Yay for no gestational diabetes! My mom had it with my younger brother. I used to measure our her rice for her during dinner and all that. Phew!
