Dentists and Glucose tolorance tests

Filed under: Uncategorized — Crystal @ 3:44 pm

Celeste had her first dentist appointment today and was an excellent patient.  She did everything they asked her to do!  She has no problems (no over bite/cross bite ect.), perfect teeth.  She also got her hair cut today and is all ready to start school next week!

I got the results back today of my 3 hour glucose tolerance test.  I failed, but barley.  You fail if 2 numbers are over.  She is a bit shocked that my number went up at the 3 hour and she wonders as well as I do, if the 2 hour vial and the 3 hour one got switched.  However, even if they did, I still failed because if you swap 2 and 3 the cutoff would have been the same number as my reading, failing me.  The midwife thinks that since it is such a borderline fail that diet will control it and I won’t need insulin this time.  We will see what the endocrinologist has to say.  Here is what the numbers were.

Fast-   107 (cut off was 95)
1 hour- 173 (cut off was 180)
2 hour- 111 (cut off was 155)
3 hour- 155 (cut off was 140)

27 week midwife visit with baby #3

Filed under: family,life in general — Tags: , — Crystal @ 11:35 am

Everything went well. Not much exciting to report, except the fundal
height (how high my uterus is) is measuring early at 30 weeks not 27.
Weight gain was good at 2 lbs for the past month. 🙂 I have my 3
hour glucose tolerance test.tomorrow, so wish me luck on that one. If
I pass I’ll be back in 3 weeks, If I fail, I’ll be back in 2 weeks.
The baby’s heart rate was 150.

I brought a picture of Celeste right after delivery, because a couple
of months back when I was browsing through her newborn pictures, I
thought I saw a knot in her umbilical cord. So when I mentioned it to
my midwife, she said to bring it in and she’d tell me if it was or
not. After bringing it in she said it was indeed a true knot
(sometimes curvy veins look like them when they are not) It is
actually rare to happen, only 1-2% of babies have them and it
increases infant/fetus fatality risks (up to 6% higher chance) and
delivery complications. So she is one lucky kiddo, because it went
undiagnosed. From what I’ve read it happens a lot to babies with
longer than average cords. I attached the picture so you can see it.

Great deal!

Filed under: life in general — Crystal @ 3:05 pm

Normally they are $80-$130 depending on the model and I’ve always loved the Active version because of all the padding and adjustments, however that one is the $130 one and too expensive for us.  Well I was browsing a local children’s consignment shop near us and found a 2009 brand new one that the sticker says is only a month old mispriced at $35 that was the cost of all the used BabyBjorn Originals, the Actives were all marked at $90, except for the one I had.  I brought it up to buy it keeping quit  and figured if the clerk catches it, she catches it and she didn’t!  So I got a super awesome deal!  On top of it, the color is the black/gray one I wanted!  Yea!  I just wanted to share my find.  I almost feel a little guilty, but they are the ones that put the price tag on it, not me!  Now, to go out and buy the BabyBjorn blanket cover thingy and possibly the bib!
