Letters to Baby K - Week 28


Well, I made it through my first week of the dreaded third trimester. Unscathed? Perhaps not, but only time will tell, as I am sitting here in the Doctors office going through the even more dreaded three hour glucose test, ugg! Yes, that means I did not pass the initial one hour glucose test. Womp, womp. My results came back slightly elevated, so here I am, hungry (because I had to fast) and nervous for the results. Good thing I brought my laptop along to blog, because this is no fun.

Of course when I got the first results my initial reaction was to cry. What else do you do when you're hormonal and pregnant!? The thought of possibly having gestational diabetes scared me...hell, it still does! I thought to myself what did I do wrong? But, what I've learned is, it's not your fault. Yes, I may indulge in a few more sweets then I did before pregnancy, but that is not what causes gestational diabetes. Pregnant women who have never had diabetes before, but who have high blood glucose (sugar) levels during pregnancy, are said to have gestational diabetes. It is not known what causes gestational diabetes, but there are clues. The placenta supports the baby as it grows. Hormones from the placenta help the baby develop. But these hormones also block the action of the mother's insulin in her body. This problem is called insulin resistance. Insulin resistance makes it hard for the mother's body to use insulin. She may need up to three times as much insulin. Gestational diabetes starts when your body is not able to make and use all the insulin it needs for pregnancy. Without enough insulin, glucose cannot leave the blood and be changed to energy. Glucose builds up in the blood to high levels. This is called hyperglycemia. The good news is you can help control gestational diabetes by eating healthy foods, exercising and, if necessary, using medication. Of course I am praying that these results come back normal and that I do not have Gestational Diabetes, "ain't nobody got time for that!"

I'll keep you posted on the results....and on a happier note, Peyton is doing great and is measuring in a week ahead of schedule. He's probably close to 3lbs at this point, measures 14.8 inches from head to heel and is roughly the size of a head of iceberg lettuce...seriously, who came up with this food scale? haha!

If this is your first time on the blog feel free to check out some of my previous pregnancy posts! I hope you'll stick around for the long haul!

  1. I was a HIV-AIDS patient and I got it from cheating on my wife. It was sort of a payback but a week later I was told by a friend that the person who I cheated with had the HIV-AIDS virus and did not tell me. I was so stupid by not using a condom I thought since he was an old school friend he was trustworthy. But I was wrong. I cried and cried. Two days later, I got a phone call from my friend and he told me about a person who is known by another friend, who can help me. I could not let my wife know what I was going through. I finally got his email address: oseremenspelltemple@gmail.com and I emailed this man my story and he replied me immediately saying i should be calm and told me that everything will be OK. I could not come to terms with what I was hearing but then I concluded it did not matter because I was so broken I just needed help. I was going out of my mind literally. I was confused with what he was telling me, but I listened. He told me about some materials i need to buy that he needed to cast the spell and I said OK. I bought the materials to him, I sent down my picture to him and my positive result sheet and he replied me that i am going to be negative under 3days. I message Him every 2hours for 2day and I knew he thought that I was crazy but I did care I needed a shoulder. Behold, the third day he messaged me i should go for a test that i will be negative. My marriage could be broken because of a stupid mistake and my life was on the line. I remembered when I was going to get the results of my re-test I called him up again and told him that I was going to get my results today and his reply was “so" and that everything will be as he explained. I knew then that he was getting tired of me calling him, maybe I was wrong. Well I got my results and the first person I called was him - again. As he said hello I started to cry and cry. I could not believe it. I was given a second chance in life.This man is a great spiritual HIV/AIDS healer, his healing spell on aids healing is very powerful .please brothers and sister, contact Dr Ose oseremenspelltemple@gmail.com
