  • I went for my last 4 week appointment on Wednesday as well as my GD test which i thought they were doing a bit late as i am over 30 weeks already.
    My main concern with the appointment is that our new house is about an hour or more with traffic from the hospital. So i asked my ob when she thought would be a good time to call during labor. She was immediately concerned that anytime would not be enough time because of DD's fast arrival and asked if i would consider induction. I told her that we could discuss it. She will give me an date next Friday. I did the GD blood draw and thought nothing else of it till the next day when i got a call saying it was high =( I am really still shocked about it because i have been eating well. Exercising moderately and really not gaining much weight. Also baby is measuring small not large. However i went today for my three hour and will find out the results tomorrow morning. I am hoping all is well and it was just a false high reading. I had GD with DS #1 and he was 9.5 lbs!!! I do not want another baby that big. I did deliver him vaginally but it was worse then the other two put together times 2!!! Keep your fingers crossed for us!!
