Blood Tests Results

The DNA confirms that it is Justin's baby . . . JUST KIDDING!

But to update those of you who are keeping up. The second round of our sequential screen blood test came back fine. We also elected to have some additional blood tests run for Cystic Fibrosis, Fragile X, and there was a 3rd one which my pregnancy memory has allowed to slip my mind, but all of those came back Negative too. (And Negative here is good).

And rather than leave you with such a short (and fairly uneventful) post, I'll fill the space with some nonsense. The following is an ongoing list of some random things I've had cravings for:
  1. Oreos
  2. Baked Potatoes
  3. Clementines
  4. Strawberries and Blueberries
  5. Pears
  6. Arugula
  7. Godiva Creme Brule Chocolate (anything chocolate really)
  8. Meat
  9. Chili
  10. Rice
  11. Rice Crispy Treats
  12. Cereal

And believe me, this girl (*me; NO, we're not having a girl . . . that we know of . . . so don't even think about reading into that) can eat! Although, right now, the whole Gestational Diabetes thing is keeping me disciplined. I guess that's a good thing . . .

Also, for a little laugh, I've been keeping an ongoing list of relevant words that I've made up during my pregnancies.

  1. Hormotional - It's the crazy level of emotional that a pregnant woman (including myself) can tend towards
  2. Sneed - (This one is probably TMI for most, but if you've ever been pregnant, you know exactly what I mean . . . go on, admit it) It's when you sneeze and pee a little . . . I do it all the time, even right after I've used the bathroom!

You are so funny. I am sure Justin is happy to know that the baby is his, LOL! Too cute. I love the list of cravings, I am sure it will keep growing but great job on the disciplined eating part, I am sure that is very hard. I love the made up words, I was cracking up when I read that. ALL the women in my family Sneed, it is so funny but just a fact of life. My poor cousin was scared to know that she has that to look forward to, LOL!

I am so happy for you guys that the bloodwork came back negative so far and that things are going well. What an answer to prayer. I will keep you all in my prayers, thanks for the update and the laugh!!! :)
