Pregnant after IF

Back from fetal echo

All is fine with the babies...thank God.

So I get there and the tech is setting up and she said okay you are having a fetal echo because you have gestational diabetes? I said um no, I passed my sugar test twice and it was not borderline, but very low.  She insisted her notes said it was because I had GD. Long story short, the peri came in and out, called over to my ob's office and it turns out that my peri (she was not there today but at the hospital) ordered the fetal echo just as an extra precaution. Although everything was fine, she wanted more clear pictures. Hence the me being overweight reason I guess.

The babies were extremely uncooperative, especially the girl. I had to move back and forth from my side to my back. Both of them had their hands and/or legs right in front of their hearts. But I was glad to see them moving so much since I barely feel them move yet.

So after all that, I was so overjoyed to hear that the babies are okay. In reality I did not really need to have this test. And when I left the exam room my dad was fast asleep in the waiting room, poor guy!
