    Thanks for your note!  :)  I am so glad that yours was neg too!  Such a  big "phew".  I didn't even know I was so worried about it till I got the results.

    I just read your post about your tired day.  And I know something that helped me so so very much as I entered those last weeks of pregnancy was talking with other gals that were also at the same stage as me.   LOL.

    As I listened to them whine about their pregnancy symptoms it made me feel so much better about my symptoms being pregnancy related not chemo.  lol.  sound crazy I know but it helped.  So if you aren't in a due date club.... think about finding one.  Go with your actual due date not induction/c-sect date.  And listen to them whine and complain about things like tired and aches and pains and sleeplessness and be comforted.... a little....  :)

    Prayers for rest for you.  Get all you can.... I had to use Ambien near the end of my pregnancy because I was sleeping soooo poorly.  even the full dose was only giving me 4-6 hours of sleep.  don't be afraid to ask for it.  and when/if you do dont be afraid to take it.  Get the 5mg prescription so you can take less if it works for you.   Another thing that helped me was cutting off most of my water drinking at 7 pm.  I would swish and spit if I was super thirsty after then or take just tiny sips.  This came on the recommendation of my high risk doctor after I complained about my fatigue from waking all night! 

    and please feel free to completely disregard all this unsolicited advice..... or use it all if you want.... either way..... just don't tell me and I we both can be happy.  LOL

    Hi Jamie, My Dad was a great sailor and his favorite day to go sailing in San Diego was Wednesday. My Mom and he would go out in the morning and be sailing into the harbor about the time all the 'beer can racing sailing' people were sailing out. I remember my Mom anxiously looking at the 500 boats sailing at them, asking 'how do we get through?', and Dad responding, 'One sailboat at a time'. That response has stuck me as there have been times when troubles seem to be coming too thick for.me. One thing at a time, and that's what you're doing so well. Keep your sense of humor and your courage and resolve!! Hugs from Kansas,

    Just read about the blood sugar issue so sorry. Hang in there kid it's almost over and you will be changeing diapers and chaseing Jack around the house. Thinking about you daily and still walking and praying for you  and the baby. Have you picked out a name yet?  Love you

    Jamie,

    I'm a [retired] childbirth educator and labor doula. I recommend you eat papaya enzyme tablets with every meal/snack. Helps to break down the proteins and make it more easy for you to digest the food.

    Also, often gd is a load of BS. For example, if you didn't carbo load for a few days before the GTT, your numbers will be wonky. I am no expert on chemo and pregnancy and elevated blood sugar as a result, so I don't know if what they are telling you is true, but I would not get too worried. Just as you advocated for yourself re no PICC line (YOU GO GRRRL!!!), find out more about the gd, and tell everyone to calm the fuck down. Just keep up your protein intake (80 to 100 gms per day is ideal--don't kill me; I know about heartburn from hell and it sucks!) and eat COMPLEX carbs (whole grains) to keep the blood sugar lower. That means avoid white stuff--sugar, white flour products, white rice...cocaine, heroin, oh wait, nevermind, you don't EAT those. ;-)

    You rock Jamie!
