    Default Appt update :)

    Everything looked great ...measuring 23wks, hr in the 150s, bp 100/58, and helloooo weight gain...up 5lbs in 4wks for a total of 8lbs this pg .

    I saw the NP today and she was very nice . It took her awhile to find Mocha with the doppler, but we could see movement, lol, so that was reassuring until she was able to locate a hb . I have a hard time finding it too...placenta is just in the way.

    They gave me the orange glucose drink to do at my convenience anytime between 24 and 28wks. I just have to drink it and be at the lab 10mins before the blood draw at the 1hr mark (no fasting required, yaay). I have an appt with my pulmonologist on the 31st at 3:40 so I'm going to go early, eat lunch at the hospital cafe, do my GD test, get a snack afterwards, and head to the pulmo's which is right there too. I'm expecting good results . So, any suggestions on what a good pre-GD test meal might be? High/low carb? High protein? Heavy/light? Any thoughts??

    We discussed the pertussis vax also...dh and I will be getting it sometime after I'm 30wks.

    My next appt is in 5wks on Aug 25th...I'll be 28wks!

    Light, high protein, low carb is what I read. About 2-3 hours beforehand. Wish my OB would have told me it was non-fasting test...
