So... I don't have gestational diabetes! All four of my blood draw results were nicely within the normal range. My three-hour level was actually lower than my initial fasting level, which is great. I am hopeful that this means I am cleared for the whole pregnancy, but I haven't discussed the results with my midwife yet so I still don't know if they're going to want to retest me at 28 weeks or not. We'll see! But in the meantime I'll enjoy my freedom to eat when I want without testing my glucose regularly.
Also, the baby clothes I ordered from Old Navy arrived yesterday, and you guys, they are SO cute. The purple-striped waffle knit shirt is seriously possibly the cutest article of clothing ever to exist in the entire world. And the bathing suit? Well, I ordered it in size 6-12 months, thinking that would be perfect for next summer, and when I unpacked it, it looked startlingly huge. Seriously, giant enough that I had my first "OMG my baby is growing up SO FAST" crisis, imagining that he would already fit into that next SUMMER only a few months after he's born.
But then I noticed that the bathing suit is almost exactly the same size as the 12-18 month pants that I ordered, and at first I thought it was just sizing inconsistency, but then it occurred to me that maybe it's done intentionally to accommodate a giant swim diaper? Does anyone else have experience with this? It suddenly seemed like maybe it would be a really clever idea to make your baby bathing suits for this purpose, but I can't tell if it really was just a sizing inconsistency issue or if Old Navy is that thoughtful in their bathing suit production. What do you guys think?
