Yeah! No Gestational Diabetes!

As you all know, testing during pregnancy can be so nerve racking.

I had some early scares in this pregnancy and my doc was pretty concerned that I may have had GD, since I all of a sudden gained a lot of weight.  

Well, with my exercise program, I guess it helped because my test results were all normal and my weight gain has slowed a bit.  No more tests to worry about----now just the labor--ugh!  I begin my third trimester today and feel a difference already with being very tired.  Anyone else feel very tired and aching hips and back at 27 weeks??
