"No Photos Please"

I had my appointment yesterday at 21 weeks, 3 days as well as my glucose tolerance test.  The glucose tolerance test drink was so disgusting; I hate fake orange flavor and I just barely finished in it the 5 minutes they allow you.  I was a bit worried I'd vomit and have to redo it later.  The good news is that I seem to have passed since my ob said they would call only if I didn't and they should have had the result by the afternoon (actually by lunch really).  The appointment went well.  Baby Blondie is looking good, but he was hiding his face behind his hand and the placenta so we didn't get a good profile shot (thus the "no photos please" title).  He also was keeping his boy parts hidden so no confirmation today on that.  My next appointment is on December 28 so I'll be 25 weeks, 3 days and D will hopefully make it to the appointment (he's going to try).  I actually lost the u/s photos for a while yesterday (they blew out of my purse when I was leaving the building, but I went back after I realized they were gone and found them.\

My progesterone is 44.2 ng/dL (20 weeks, 2 days), which is at least a rise from the last draw but it's still Zone 2.  I'm pretty sure I'll be on PIO until 36 weeks at this point.  It's funny that my level at 20 weeks is barely 3 ng/dL high than at 4 weeks (with quite a few drops in between).






We have the baptism seminar at our church this evening, so hopefully D will be off work in time (he's tends to have to work late on Wednesdays).  His baptism will be in Houston at the church where D and I got married on June 5 (so that my parents can be in the country...it's just before my brother's wedding) during one of the Masses.  He'll either wear my little brother's baptism outfit or D's family's baptism gown (depending on how big he is...he may even wear both).  I'll post pictures of each when I have them.  We have decided on his godparents but haven't asked them yet.

  6. Such cut pics! MG did not cooperate at her 20 week ultrasound either. The tech told me to have a little sugar or caffiene before I come in next time to wake her up. :)

    I have my gestational diabetes test next week. My doc doesn't do it until 24-25 weeks. I'm so stinkin' nervous about it for some reason. I've had my drink stuff sitting in my fridge for seveal weeks now. I'm not looking forward to it. Ack!

  7. I love looking at these pictures and hearing about the baptism plans. We have a family gown too, through dh's side, made of his grandmother's wedding dress. Love these traditions!

  8. Great pics! I think it is cute that he was playing "hide and seek"! I enjoyed reading about the baptism plans and I think it is neat that the baptism will be at the church you were married at.
