Hello 32 weeks! Hello contractions! I am actually timing contractions right now. I think I just over did it this morning, or at least I am hoping that's all I did. I put my husband on stand by, just in case, but I am really hoping that now that I am sitting down with my feet up that they go away. They're starting at the front and in the middle of my pelvis and wrap around to my back. They're all pretty low laying, but yea. Still a concern. 32 weeks is still to early. I guess it's a good thing I had decided that I would start on the hospital bags, huh?

Other than that, I failed my 3 hour glucose test last week. So I have been poking myself in the finger to test my glucose level 4 times a day since Friday. It's really not as bad as I thought it would be. I've had a few high readings, but most are within range, thankfully. As far as the diet goes, they want me to eat so much food! I'm having trouble with that. I normally do not eat much, so it's daunting. But I'm getting better with it.

Still having contractions, but they have spaced out. They were about 10 to 15 minutes apart, but for the past few hours they've 45 to 55 minutes apart. Called my doc and I am to take it easy and keep my feet up as much as I can for the next couple of days. But if they kick up and get closer again, I am to go to L&D immediately to be monitored.

Hope the contractions stop for you! I've noticed some muscle soreness in my belly the past few days which I'm assuming is from all of the stretching. Sounds like you've got the glucose level testing down! Hopefully those hospital bags stay put for a bit!

I hope it's just overdoing it too. I've started getting minor cramping when I am too active and do a lot of bending over (cleaning, etc). I'm going to say get plenty of rest but I know sometimes it's not that easy! I was surprised when my husband went to his diet class for diabetes. We also don't eat a lot and there is no way he was ever going to be able to eat as much as they wanted. But he made a couple major changes (cut out soda and sweets primarily) and his blood sugar went drastically down.
