Quoting AmyOrangeMama:" Thats weird, Ive never had to bring mine home. Ive had orange and grape. Both were not bad taste wise, but the thickness and it being so syrupy is what gets me. Ew! "


That would suck, because then I'd have to drink it and sit there for an hour waiting lol. Here they send it home with you so you can drink it an hour before your appointment and show up ready to be poked. I have to start drinking it in an hour :( Bleh.

I never took it home it was all done in the lab. I choose orange everytime because I hate grape and that's the only two flavors we have in ny.. I'm not looking forward to doing that test.. I still have a few weeks to go before I have to.

i wonder if you guys get differant drinks over there. Cause here the drink isnt syrupy at all. its very sweet and tastes like orange pop. Even has the fizziness.

Our glucose drink also tastes like pop up in Northern Idaho! We only have orange but it tastes like Orange Crush soda and I love orange crush! Haha.



I have to get another ultrasound between 28-32 weeks as well. I haven't mentioned it in here yet but at my ultrasound my baby had an EIF (echogenic cardiac focus) or bright spot on the heart. It doesn't affect growth or function and is basically a calcium deposit on the heart. They have to check on it to make sure it dissolved. It is also something they monitor because it is a soft marker for down syndrome. Since I am low risk and have no other markers it has been determined this is no longer an indicator of downs because they realized it was much more common than they thought. It basically increases my risk by 0.002%. Haha. So not concerned about it really.

My appointment went mostly fine. I passed the glucose test, which I expected. I had to wait a little longer to get into my ultrasound because one of the OBs was stuck at the hospital delivering a baby while her patients piled up in the waiting room. One baby is 1 lb 5 oz and the other is 1 lb 6 oz. Didn't get any good face shots because one had the other's head crammed between his legs and then had his arms over his own face. Oh well, next time!

Had an appt today, everything looks fine. My uterus is growing so that's good! Lol
Need to go for my glucose test before April 5th. So I'll just go in when I have nothing to do.
I'll also be getting another u/s to check on my placenta and make sure all is well with that and that it's outta the way and I'm good to go. Baby was kicking the Doppler when he was trying to hear the hb lol. Other than that a pretty quick appt. don't go back till April 18th. Times flyin! :(

Please give me your opinion. My mom and I are about to butt heads because she thinks this color is "girly", I do not. I am having a boy so I want it for him.



P.s. ... if you also think its girly, i wont be annoyed with you like I am with my mom, she is just disagreeing with me on EVERYTHING lol

O.o There's absolutely nothing about that I'd find "girlie"... it's lime green, grey, and black no? That's about as neutral as they come.

No definately not girly. I think it would be good for either.
