an answer to prayer

First of all, THANK YOU to everyone who prayed for my one hour glucose test last week. I've been 99% sure of the results since Thursday of last week, but I wanted to wait until my appointment today (when I could be 100% sure) before I shared any official results.

And truthfully, my title for this post is wrong. God always answers prayer--sometimes He just answers with no instead of yes. In those cases, we trust that since He's God, He knows better than we do. But it is still an answer.

This time, however, His answer was yes. :) I do NOT have gestational diabetes this pregnancy. I not only passed the test, but according to the official numbers, I passed with flying colors! :) It wasn't even borderline or anything. Woo-hoo!

I am of course thrilled about this. I have been working hard trying to eat healthier, exercise more, etc. Perhaps God chose to honor that. Perhaps it is simply a divine gift. But whatever the reason, I am much relieved and extremely grateful. Thanks again for praying. :) Soli Deo gloria! (To God alone be the glory.)

Yeah! Yeah! Yeah!

So worth it to drink the nasty drink to find that out! (or course, maybe your GD was more involved...)

I did have to drink the nasty drink twice this time, just like I did with Sarah. But obviously the results were much better this time! :)
