Daily Diary: If I’m Going Out… I’m Going Out Guns Blazing


Today is my gestational diabetes test. It’s anyone’s guess because I had GD with Natalie but NOT with Liam. I gained the same amount of weight (45 pounds each time) and was on extensive bed rest with each pregnancy as well. My family has a history of the disease – so it really wasn’t a surprise.

But this time – it’s anyone’s guess. I mean why wouldn’t I have it while pregnant with Liam? Is luck on my side? Perhaps, I won’t get it this time either.


In the meantime… I’m getting all my favorite foods / drinks in JUST IN CASE I HAVE TO SAY GOODBYE. πŸ™‚ So, you know that means a BTL from Starbucks.


A yummy-licious Grilled Cheese with Bacon on a Roll…


And last night I even opted for a big bowl of ice cream. This is another craving of mine. Breyer’s Vanilla Ice Cream with LOTS of chocolate syrup mixed together. Bill whips it all before he gives it to me. I believe I’m at a 50/50 ratio at this point (ice cream to syrup). Why not just do chocolate ice cream? Because it’s not the same!! πŸ™‚

Anyway – I have to wait 3 to 4 days for results. So, you know this weekend is going to be bad. No judgements please. I’m going to eat all types of horrific things.

  1. Good luck! I had mine today too…the 3-hour. I was ok until the last half hour, when I broke out in a drenching sweat and almost passed out. Then I wolfed down about 10 cookies because I was so desperate to EAT! I’m with you in the “big baby club” πŸ™‚
