28 weeks, and a temporary farewell

Today I went in for my 28 week appointment.  Everything went great!  My blood pressure was actually normal today!  I had gained another two pounds, which brings the total up to 14.  I did fail my glucose tolerance test that I did last week so today he told me the plan.  I'm going to be on an 1800 calorie diet, and will be checking blood sugars before and after meals until Luci is born.  Not what I would like to be doing, but considering it's the best for Miss Luci I'm all for it!  Thanksgiving and Christmas will be pretty tough, but it's only food. ;)  He told me what my blood sugar should be before and after meals, and by looking at what they've been lately, there are several things are having to be cut out of my diet.  Definitely no more of those double hot fudge brownie sundaes from Braums, so farewell my friend.  I'll see you again in about 3 months!
