24w

It is now after 1am on Thursday. 24 weeks.
As of today, my baby is considered to have a possiblity of viability outside the womb.
While by no means does this mean Baby C can come any ol' time, it is a milestone that has meant a lot to me.

I'm going to actually consider buying some maternity clothes. And maybe looking at baby stuff. It'll probably take some working up to, but I'm going to try.

In other news- my glucose tolerance test is in the morning. I'm interested to see how that pans out. I was insulin resistant to start with, so I'm steeling myself for failure, and hoping to at least pass the 3 hour. But I sure wouldn't mind passing the 1 hour and being done with the chugging of not-so-great-stuff.


Wish me luck!

Good luck with your GTT. I had mine yesterday and it wasn't as bad as I thought. Hopefully you can avoid the 3-hr! XOXO
