Gestational Diabetes + Glyburide = biweekly NST's and weekly u/s

Still here. Still pregnant. Today marks the 33th week of pregnancy. Yay!

My gestational diabetes isn't working out so great, my numbers aren't horrible with the diet alone but they aren't in the ranges my OB would want so she added in the oral medication, glyburide. With the addition of medication, it also means that it is the beginning of my weekly trips to my OB's office for biweekly NST's and weekly u/s (these are biophysical profiles, also known as BPP). She passed with flying colors so far and no indication that we should expect anything else.

Baby Girl is doing fantastic and that's all that matters :)
