Glucose Test & I'm getting bigger

I have my glucose test a week from Thursday and I'm seriously dreading it. I had gestational diabetes with Ethan so I know what to expect. I've been praying almost every day that I will pass this one. The dr. gave me a glucose test at 9 weeks and I passed so maybe I can pass again. Just the thought of having to prick my finger 4x a day until Brennan gets here really bothers me. I had a really hard time doing it with Ethan, my fingers were so calloused and hurt. I am so grateful I was able to control the diabetes with diet & exercise so I really shouldn't complain about the finger pricks but it is hard.

I think I'm growing every day. A woman came up to me in Target today (she was pregnant) and asked me when I was due. I asked her when she was due and she said Friday. I almost fell to the floor she was just a tad bit bigger than me. All I could think was I have another 12 weeks, what am I going to do? I'll have to hire someone to walk beside me just to hold up my big belly.

How much does the position pay? I am currently staying home with Kaylee, but willing to strap her on my back and hold up a stomach if the price is right. :-P

Hmmm, I'll have to see if I can stretch the budget a little. ;) The company would be nice!!
