Cross Your Fingers

Tomorrow I cross every woman's pregnant mount Olympus: the Diabetes test. I fast tonight after midnight. At 8am in the early morning I will head to the  midwife office and I will gulp down the sugary tang like drink and wait. They will take my blood and then I wait. My biggest hope is that I won't have to take it again. I have heard that the second test is much more grueling.

This is the day I have been worried about because diabetes is heredity in my family. At a family reunion, you could spit and hit someone that has diabetes. Not to mention that it may make natural birth more difficult if I grow a giant baby these last 2 months or so.

So keep those fingers crossed out there!
