24weeks 4 days / sono pics

I think they looked a little less alien-like, and a little more filled out now. I'm totally loving the hand. Looks like Baby B is trying to push his way out! Oh, and he's flipped so they are now both head down (bring on the vag delivery!) and spooning like two little parentheses cuddling in my belly. Picture this: (( That's kinda how they are laying in there.
First words out of my OB's mouth today were, and I quote, "You're not still working, are you?" After a brief discussion, he is on board with the 4 hours/day reduced office schedule. He even said I don't have to start immediately. He suggested I work toward that. I think I'll start forcing myself to work half days when I can. So, tomorrow, I'll leave just after noon. But Thursday, work at least 9-2; and Friday, take the morning off.
Next OB appointment in two weeks is my glucose test. Directions say to bring a protein. Any ideas what or how much that should be? The girl who made the appointment was zero help.

I think this is my first time commenting; I found you through a google search when I started spotting at 5+weeks; I ended up having to induce a miscarriage because my baby had no heartbeat.

Anyway...when I was prego with my first, now 2 1/2 I passed out during my glucose test! (I have blood sugar problems already though.) My husband and I went out for a full breakfast afterword. I had planned on going back to work, but felt so exhausted afterwords I just went home and slept. (When my blood sugar gets low I need to eat and then just sleep off the effects, that is how my body works.)

So my answer would be to bring a 'full meal' of some type. A sandwich or something.

Hope it goes well! I LOVE the ultrasound photos!

Your rants about your spotting were quite comforting to me; until my ultrasound revealed the worse. I am very happy that I found your blog. And I am even MORE happy that you have twins on the way!

Bring a protein? That's weird. I'm having mine this Thursday and had my own issues with the clinic. My doctor specifically told me to not fast and have a light breakfast...then they tell me to fast (and by the way bringing a snack for after was not mentioned). After bickering back and forth I finally just said I was going by my doctor's orders and they would have to deal. I confirmed with my doctor today...she still says to not fast. How strange that everyone has their own way to do this. Well I'll let you know how it goes Thursday. Bring on the sweet grossness.

Hmmm, that is weird. Bring a protien. I was told I could eat a protien before (eggs). Since my appointment was at 9:45 I just didn't eat and ate right after (a cliff bar) oh maybe that would work it has protien!

Glad work will be accomodating. My director took away work from home from our department the week before Christmas. Bah Humbug.

Protein - maybe a hardboiled egg or two? Sounds like they don't want you to starve, but don't want to anything that will affect your blood sugars too much.

The babes are TOO CUTE! Loving those long fingers. :-)
