I was soooo irrationally worried about my prenatal
We got to the maternity hospital and I had to down half-a-cup of glucose in one go. Bleuuurgghhhh. Then had to survive on no water for an hour (very difficult for a hydrophile like me) to see if my body could break down all that sugar normally.
The good news is – I got the all clear – NO gestational diabetes *whew*.
During the hour of waiting, to kill time, they let us have another ultrasound, yayyyy!!! I love our hospital. Normally you pay for ultrasounds and the package only comes with a set number included, but so far, they’ve done an ultrasound for us at every single visit (!!) – which they don’t have to and which we are so grateful for, because it’s such a wonderful feeling seeing your baby on the screen 🙂
This time, it was a 4D ultrasound again, which is heaps more fun than the regular version since the baby is in 3D and moves in real time as well. They double-checked the gender (yes, still a boy!) and we watched him wriggle. And boy, did he MOVE! The sugar hit I had also hit him, and he was jumping and bopping around so much my stomach was constantly moving. He was stretching and waving his arms, jiggling/bouncing his legs and fiddling with his face and umbilical cord, scrunching up his face and turning this way and that. It was beyond cute 😛
