I passed the GD test!  So happy!  Last time I had to do the 3-hour test which sucked.

My iron was a little low so I’m supposed to take an extra supplement, with orange juice.

V. went to sleep at 8 last night and only woke briefly around midnight (“briefly” for her means 45 minutes instead of 2 hours).  I think she was cold.  I cranked up the space heater and she slept through until 7 a.m.  Yay!

For some reason, even though I’m exhausted, I have a hard time falling asleep.

I’m hoping as I get more rest, though, that my blood pressure will drop down into a better range.  It’s still hovering right around that 140/90 line.  I haven’t told anyone except you guys yet.

    it might be the stress too because you’re thinking about this time of the year with V and worrying about it??
    Glad you passed that sucks that you had to go twice though!

    Hi there,
    That’s so great that you passed the GD test. Hope the blood pressure goes down.
    Thanks for commiserating with my post about potty training. 🙂

    Congratulations in no GD!
    I hope you are able to get more sleep and that your bp goes down or at least does not go any higher:)

    Horray for passing that hurdle! Good for you. If you still have challenges with it later, let me know as I have been really learning a lot of new reipies and things I can eat w/ GD. Also, I have been working on my BP (I have gotten it down 15 points in a few weeks) by taking celery seed suppliments (at night) and Vit D3 (5000 mg a day), as well as taking liquid chloriphil and drinking Nettles Tea.

    Thanks for always posting such sweet comments on my blog. It is so good to hear from you.
