    I went up to the hospital this morning for the glucose tolerance test. I'm extremely dubious about it, to be honest. After doing a bit of research, I've discovered that 7 in 10 GTT's are unnecessary. I was almost ready to cancel it completely but I don't want to take any risks.

    Hi everyone,

    Welcome to my blog. I thought I'd like to try and keep a blog to remember all the ups and downs of my pregnancy. Plus it will be really nice to look back on this after baby arrives.

    A bit of a warning, I will be VERY candid and open. I want to write down pretty much everything but please be careful. Some of my entries may upset people as they deal with unpleasant subjects.
