All I want for Christmas…

All I want for Christmas…

…is my two front teeth.  Well, one of them at least.  The first week in December I got a phone call from the boys school telling me that Nathan had gotten into an accident in gym class.  Apparently he had tripped over a ball and hit his front teeth off the ground.  There was a lot of bleeding so the school felt like they should call us to let us know incase we wanted to go to the dentist.  I ended up driving to school to check up on him and took him home for the day.  Now, that tooth is starting to turn black.  It is definitely dying.

I can see why kids get “practice” teeth.  Hopefully it stays in his head for a few years until he’s ready to start losing the baby teeth.  I think it’s time to schedule their first dentist appointment!

3 hour glucose

Here I am sitting in the Dr’s office doing my 3 hour glucose test.  My levels were only slightly elevated for the first one hour test 143 (they want to see under 140).  I did get to see a new doctor though and asked a few questions.  I am measuring at 34 weeks and today I’m 30w5d.  Which is normal for twins.  This new doctor asked me if I wanted to go ahead and schedule the c-section for 38 weeks.  I told her no that if I was going to have a c-section I’d want to go back to GBMC.  She suggested I go back to them now.  Which defeats the purpose of coming to Mercy to begin with.  Baby A is still breech and B is transverse.  But I’ve read about a number of twin pregnancies were baby A switched.  I’m just not ready to give up yet on baby A turning around.

I also needed to get a TDAP shot today.
