Sorry, just really need to vent;

So at my ultrasound to find out the gender, the Ultrasound tech tells me they found 2 soft markers for downs syndrome. Then they tell me there's a possible hole in his heart. So I go up to their Specialist an hour away to get an ultrasound the next day. Guess what? Nothing's there.

Now that same lab is telling me I'm the exact number I need to be to have to buy all this equipment and see their dietician which conveniently my insurance doesn't cover because she's not on the providers list. I'm really starting to think this is some sort of money making scheme. I really am.
I would just wait and see what your regular ob says about everything. Your ob will see both results from both places and let you know what you should do. That's what I'd do anyways.


I went to the online site where you can see all your results. Looks like the fasting number was 5 under, the 1 hour was right on the GD number, the 2 hour was 36 over, and the 3 hour was right on the number again. :/ So I guess I have it. sweatdrop

I see my OB tomorrow & the dietician. My NP said that my OB may just tell me to test my blood sugar and chart till the next appointment, and if my numbers are good from my diet then I may not have to poke myself. *hopes*

My midwives decided to pop my GD test on me by surprise today. It made me feel so icky. I thought I wasn't going to make it through the test without vomiting. I got really dizzy and hot and sweaty. I hope I don't have to take the 3 hour test. It scares me. sad I came back home instead of going back to work I felt so crappy. I took a nap and now I feel fine. I just felt WRONG. I was pissed they just popped it on me. I had told my boss I was coming back to work and then I wasn't able to. I should find out the results tomorrow afternoon, Thursday at the latest. If no one calls me that means I passed.

Morning sickness cures- I had to go on Zofran. NOTHING helped- nothing. Peanuts did and still do provide dulling the nausea edge a bit. Other than that all of the home remedies I tried only worked for 2-3 days and then didn't anymore. Good luck!
Are they allowed to pop it on you like that? I thought they had to let you know because you're only allowed to eat certain things before hand?


I told them I had already eaten breakfast, and that it had included a banana and a peanut granola bar. They said that newer research had shown no benefits or differences in fasting prior to the 1 hour test. You do still have to fast if you are identified as needing the 3 hour test, but for the 1 hour you do not. I shrugged and chugged my flat orange soda with more sugars in it than I normally eat in a week! They claimed that they had ended fasting requirements for the 1 hour a couple years ago and experienced no skewed data as a result. They're ultra-best and most recent research oriented, so I do trust them completely. I'm hella nervous I'll need the 3 hour. I did NOT respond well to the 1 hour. I STILL don't feel entirely well. I should know the results by Thursday at the latest.

Hello, my name is Beka or Fairy. I am currently pregnant with twin girls, 7 months along. Recently I became single due to my fiancee being killed in Afghanistan.

Congrats! Twin girls are awesome! Sorry to hear about your fiancee, though.
You have twin girls?

Yep. Twins are exhausting, but totally worth it.

Satil: My last GD test sent me for a loop. I was sick the whole time, light headed and the likes.
I was really worried as well.
I don't remember driving home.. which is pretty bad. o_o.
I passed.. somehow. I really thought I would fail.



I was looking at my old photos from my husband's first deployment homecoming. I totally cried my eyes out. Next time.. I will have two babies and wont be as skinny.

God I'm so ******** emo about my appearance.
I just want to run and do yoga like.. now.

Does anyone know if the Wii Fit is good as a workout? I figured since my boyfriends mom doesn't use hers I could use it along with doing my yoga every day. Just don't want to waste time doing it if it won't help me get healthier and possibly lose a little weight.

I really enjoyed it! I played it mostly for fun, it was my "break from exercise" exercise when I was losing my baby weight from the first one. It wasn't my main source though, so I'm not sure how much it did compared to the running/dieting, but at the very least it's fun! And as long as you're moving around you're burning more calories than you would be doing nothing.

Sooo true. I am keeping positive but it just upsets me to see a lot of my single friends get pregnant without even trying yet the one with a place, money, and a husband can't. I really don't want to try Clomid just yet, probably by next year maybe but I want to try naturally as of now and according to ovulation test strips I do ovulate, I guess it just doesn't take I suppose.

I'm a little worried about my chalk cravings. :[
I mean.. I don't have an appointment until the 14th.. and this has been going on for at least 10 days?
The baby moves all the time.. and I take my vitamins.
But seriously :[
Is Pica something that I should call and make an appointment like.. now for?
Or do you think as long as I'm not eating it, I can make it to the 14th?

Maybe you ladies can offer some word of advice, comfort or anything. My husband doesn't really know what to say and I just need something. I am so angry that people who aren't in the best position to be parents are pregnant but I can't get pregnant. Like one girl I know her and her husband of 6 months(got married within the month of meeting) got pregnant shortly after they made front page of the newspaper for their drug bust. Another friend I know found out she was pregnant in rehab to her coke addiction. She went into rehab after a month sit in jail. She is still snorting and the guy she had this kid with wants nothing to do with her and she is bitching on FB about her baby daddy and all that s**t. Than I had another friend who never wanted kids, told me if she ever got pregnant social services should take away the kid. She gets pregnant and then bitches about how she hates drinking only water since her dr told her no more water and just complained about everything! My husband thinks I am being overly dramatic about my feeling towards them, am I being reasonable or over dramatic about my disgust for them being pregnant with no effort?

It seems like you aren't really.. around the best types of people ...
But over stressing about getting pregnant, will take the magic out of it.
We were TTC with Ashton ( my first pregnancy/son ). We stressed eachother out, we each thought somethign was wrong with ourselves. Sex became a CHORE and boring. So we decided to stop. We would have a baby when we were supposed to.
It wasn't worth stressing out about. We were both young, and we had plenty of time to get pregnant ( we were only 20! ) So we dropped it.
Sex became fun and interesting again. We weren't worried about babies, or things like that.

Then he went into training ( kindda..) and he would sometimes get an hour or so to come home ( mechanic.. they sometimes have lazy training days while Infantry is busy) and that's when I got pregnant lol.
It was just.. suddenly " Omgosh! Husband is home! Let's go hanky panky really fast wink "
And well.. a month later, found out I was pregnant.


I think when you overstress, you put that stress on your body. Let pregnancy be magical and random. whee
My second pregnancy ( however ended in a miscarriage.. ) was COMPLETELY random.


This pregnancy ( happily 31 weeks! ) was a "little" planned.. we knew we would be trying.. but didn't want to be back in the "trying" stage. We both knew I was pregnant very early on.


You can't really be upset that other people easily get pregnant... I mean.. some women just have is super easy. But being upset.. that they get pregnant, when that is what women are born to do, is a little .. ridiculous. And I don't mean to sound rude!
Don't focus on them. Focus on you. smile
