worry warts

turkey day was fine -- my husband and i decided that we would tell people about the donor if it made sense to do so regardless of my parents. it's been interesting for me to see how much i still want their approval even though i'm an adult. needless to say it didn't actually come up...and most people there were not family. the close friends who came already knew so there you are. once again i was worried about something that didn't happen. i read something somewhere once about how the things you worry about are the things that don't happen which is true until it isn't. so i guess it's good to be prepared. and i appreciate the advice that people left for me. it was helpful.

had a glucose test this AM and everything seems normal. i'll know the results in a day or two. i ate the food the chinese doctor suggested instead of the bagel the doctor suggested and feel fine. no sugar crash. and quinoa congee is fairly yummy. the test really wasn't as bad as i thought it would be. once again something i was worried about that was basically a nothing.

we are now 27 weeks and the baby is 2 pounds. doctor said this is when you feel the kicks the strongest because the baby is big enough and there is still room for it to move around.

Glad to hear your Thanksgiving went well.

Quinoa congee sounds interesting! I've had quinoa, is the congee version cooked in more water?

the cooked version has more one water. for one serving it's 1/4 cup of quinoa to a cup and a half of water. i cooked it on simmer for about an hour and added some other ingredients at the end that the doctor said would help with the sugar crash.

Glad everything is still going well! I agree that worry "the right amount" helps you be prepared.
