My doctor confirmed that I was in the all clear today at my appointment for my second glucose tolerance test. So needless to say I’m very happy that the test results are negative for gestational diabetes. I guess the three blood tests in 2 hours were worth it after all!!

Addison was again head down, which is good and Dr Bopp was happy with his progress. From now on we will see the him every two weeks except of course the next appointment as we will be in Cairns on our holiday!!!

We also had our first antenatal class at the hospital last night which was a bit of fun but very informative as well. The midwife Charlene talked to us mostly about labour, the signs and what to do when contractions start. She also ran through when to call the hospital and how to approach different situations that may arise.

There were quite a few couples at the class, all at varying stages of pregnancy. We were actually only one of three couples that are at 28 weeks, and at a guess I think we might be the youngest couple there.

Everyone was very friendly and we had a great time with the ice-breaker games. It was very interesting when we split into two groups, all the men and all the women. Both groups then wrote down what we thought the positives, negatives and interesting things were about pregnancy… let’s just say the boys and girls lists were very different!

I’m looking forward to next week, however I’m not sure how Charles will go as we are watching a birthing video at the beginning of the class!!
