Well, it's been hot around here. It's not supposed to be this hot in Minnesota, is it? This weekend we're looking at 95+ temps and heat index of over 100. Yippee.

We also haven't had much rain around here. Did get a storm last night, but we sure need rain. I know the farmers are wanting some good soaking rains. Hubby was outside with the dog and came in and said, our grass is crunchy. Not normal!

Update on PG stuff:

Had my 28 week appointment yesterday. Everything looks good. I measure right on target. Have gained a whopping 8 pounds during this pregnancy. OB is happy with that so far. Cervix is long and closed and firm, he's happy about that too (as am I, of course)

Had my GTT today (1 hour) and failed :( 186 was my result, they like it under 140. My OB told me that in his experience if your 1 hr is that high, you tend to fail the 3 hour. So I get to see the NP and get started on a GD diet. Also, since being on lovenox (a blood thinner) shots since last August isn't enough, I'll get to do fingerstick blood sugars too. yippee.

All in all though, things are still going well. This little guy is a mover, that's for sure!

Glad to hear you and baby are well. Sorry about the GD. Kind of a pain, but manageable.

Your poor fingers!

Hooray for the little man's progress! Boo for the GD, it sucks (so I hear).

BTW, about the weather? Two words, sister: Global Warming. Have you seen "An Inconvienent Truth" yet? Fantastic movie. If you haven't, go sit in an air-conditioned theatre and prepare to be shocked.

Thanks for the update!
