It's a Good Day!

Today is a good day. Correction, GREAT day! I woke up in an amazing mood. I knew my sister was going to have her baby today. She is 8 days overdue and her and her OB decided to induce today.

I got a couple of updates throughout the day. Two hours ago, I last got an update saying she had been given the okay to push. Eeeeek! I could be an aunt already!

Plus, I had a doctor's appointment today. It was a really good appointment. First off, I do not have GD! That is such a huge relief off my shoulders. My levels were really low so I am not sure why they were so dang high before. This time, after an hour of drinking the glucose, my level was 120. That is 40 points less than the first test!

Second, I only gained three pounds between appointments. My diet and exercise plan must be working.

Third, I asked my doctor how my baby was positioned. He was able to tell that our little guy is head down. That makes complete sense to me since he has been kicking me pretty high up (near my ribs) all day. I know that he will move again, but it's fun to know where his head and butt were.

Like I said, it's a great day! I can't wait to hear if my nephew has been born. I am so excited for my sister. She and her husband went through about three years of fertility treatments, so they deserve to meet their miracle.

Push Becky push!
