  • no, you're not alone. i was happy to find out i didn't have anything they tested for....herpes, hiv, std's, diabetes.....even if i obviously don't have it (like hiv, etc.) i still get really nervous when they test for some reason. and then super happy when it comes out negative. congrats lol

  • After having to do the 3 hour test twice, yes, I was very happy that they finally got a correct answer.

  • Yay! You should be happy. One less thing to worry about. We already have to watch our diets because of the baby, can you imagine minimizing or restricting your diet even more? It's hard. So pat yourself on the back! You're doing an awesome job taking care of you and your little one:-)
