Thanks Lightning for the glucose information.

In terms of gallbladder, I had mine removed just over a year ago. I agree the best way to see the stones is by ultrasound. However, even if you have stones they will unlikely remove it unless it is also inflamed/rupturing. The pain I had started everywhere. Within a week it narrowed down to the top right and top middle. If you have pain along the entire top I was told it's more likely pancreatic problems. I hope you figure it out soon! Very painful!

AFM: We had our intense heart ultrasound the other day (due to medications I need to be on throughout pregnancy). They spent over 30 minutes just watching the heart. After they were satisfied they checked the entire body and other organs. Baby is perfect and everything is measuring on time. Except her legs. Her legs have grown 3 weeks AHEAD of schedule. Is it normal to have one measurement out there? What does it mean?

Yeah Iíve had the pain several times and itís never been right sided, just in the middle/all over. My MIL thinks it could be an ulcer but the tablets the dr prescribed treat those too so hopefully as long as itís nothing worse I wonít be in anymore pain.

Ursaula, Iím glad the US seemed since but I wouldnít worry too much regarding leg measurement if they werenít worried baby may just be tall lol!

Hope everyone else is well!

Hello Ladies... Well I have been off this board for a while haven't I? I missed so much and will try to get through everything sometime soon. We are doing great over here, at the last U/S we are at about the 76th percentile for growth which is much lower than the 99th we were during the 20 week scan! I have another scheduled for 3 Jul and then 14 Aug. GTT was normal so that is a relief for us.

Next apt is Friday and I have been going every 2 weeks now. They basically just check my urine, listen to the baby's heart and go over any concerns.

I get to talk to them about vacation this Friday. We have a scheduled trip to the beach 23 Jun - 1 Jul, and I am hoping they bless off on my traveling the 12 hours away. From what I know, as long as I am stopping to walk every couple of hours, there should be no issues. My BP and baby have been completely normal this pregnancy and I don't have any history of issues with my other children. Fingers crossed they don't tell me NOT to travel!! I really need the vacation.

Also, have my breast pump ordered through our insurance, so thankful for that. I am really hoping to be able to breast feed with this little one. I had issues in the past, but I was much younger then and just gave up too easily I think.

I will try to get back and read everyones progress.

Mickels, it does suck when they move your date around! Due dates are tricky because there are implications to moving them (too early, too late, needing intervention etc).

Cookie, it sounds like you are doing a little better and more relaxed now. Glad everything is going well this time!

Lightning, I have wicked heartburn. It started a couple of weeks ago. My doctor said there are lots of safe options and not to suffer in silence. I got it bad last time too, and apparently (again according to my doctor) the bad symptoms tend to get worse with subsequent pregnancies I'm taking ranitidine tablets when I need too and they work most of the time.

Ursula, are you and/or DH tall? DH is almost 6' and I'm 5'9", our first was 22 or 23 inches long when he was born. They kept telling us he'd be over 10 lbs, but he came out 7 lbs 14oz- just longer than average. He and this lo both measured ahead in the legs. We just make long babies

Amy, I hope the meds have kicked in and are making things more bearable! Also hope it's not gallstones!! one of my gfs had gallstones when she was pregnant with her first and it was seriously no fun...made the birth seem like a walk in the park though

AFM- Doing well over here. I have another 1.5 to 2 weeks of busy season left then I can start training people to take over for me! I looked at our mat policy the other day (thank goodness!) and saw that I only have 1 week left to submit my forms to qualify for the company's top up pay...which also then pointed out that I only have ~12 weeks left before this bubba is here! AH

I have my GTT next week, I also got bumped to biweekly (instead of weekly) appointments, so I'm looking forward to having a few weeks that I don't have to sit in a waiting room.

And lastly- am I the only one that has trouble peeing in those little cups they give you for urine samples? I'm a grown ass woman and I always manage to get pee on my hand. Why can't I figure this out?

I have a little yellow funnel that attaches to the bottle and you pee in it. I wa given it last pregnancy but I just wash it and reuse as itís hard plastic.

OMG that funnel looks awesome! I too have this peeing in a cup troubles!

Hope your GTT goes well Lilfoosh!

Hopefully your bloods give you answers amytrisha!

Hope all you other ladies are doing well! Still feels like in a patch where not much happens, then I realise it will be 11 weeks at maximum till she is here and it feels super close!

Have diabetes clinic this morning, so nervous, hope it all goes okay!

Went ok, now have a monitor to check my sugars four times a day, and a log book to record it all in, plus advice from a dietitian on what changes to make. Will see how things go over the next week before I go back and show them.

Glad it went ok, waiting!

My bloods are back already, Iíve got low iron so I need to collect some iron tablets. Not sure if thatís causing my pain though as thatís all they said.

Hi ladies!

Iíve just returned from our little babymoon getaway! We had a fab time. I totally canít believe how quick things will go from here! Iím nervous about the GTT test 😳 since Iím due late in the month I havenít been scheduled for it yet!
Has anyone else dealt with bad leg cramps while waking up? It only happens in the morning while still laying in bed. It starts slow and builds til I end up crying out (poor hubby!) then it goes away. Any idea what causes it or how I can avoid it?
