If only it was lucazade! It's like it but undiluted almost so quite thick texture. You get offered one if your starring BMI was over 30 or you have family history of diabetes I think xxxxx

Oh I'll have to ask her next time, or maybe I'll ring up. BMI was 24 I think and not sure about my family medical history as I'm adopted.
Thanks!

I think everyone has the glucose test at 28 weeks. Well, they do in my area I believe. For me it was a bottle of lucozade (disgusting) followed by 3 rounds of blood tests. I've just got home from it and I went straight to wagamamas on the way home, on my own, and sat there devouring my teriyaki chicken. I was the first customer of the day lol xx

Any other twin mummies enjoying the looks of horror when people ask "when's the baby due" and you correct "babies"?

I'd better phone the clinic and check as I'm 30 weeks on Friday!

They usually say "wow, double trouble!" or something. One lady asked me when the happy event was, I said around Christmas time and she said "ooh a nativity!" I told her it was 2 babies! If there is a nativity scene somewhere and I have them with me I'd be very tempted to put them in the 'manger' and take a photo! Is that weird?!!

I was measured 37 weeks for a singleton yesterday!

Hahaha that sounds like something my oh would do with the nativity scene.

Hm yeah check if it's routine in your area to do GTT. I say it because when I told my twin mummy friend I was having it done, she said "don't they always do that now?" and she's in London. The blood lady at the hospital today also said something about how they won't do my usual one later as they have done this one a bit early.

My moses basket is set up I went into John Lewis and got the fitted sheet for it today. I've just got to keep the door closed to my room now, as a certain cheeky, fluffy little guy would give his left paw for a snooze in there! xx

Mmm wish I had a wagamummas near me!

Wow blue, so do twins make you measure a lot further ahead than singles? Is that as silly question lol.

My other half went to a family funeral yesterday and his parents who are usually quite blunt about how much weight I've put on since being with him apparently complimented me on how well I've done to have such a neat bump and no extra weight elsewhere and everyone else agrees. I was very chuffed!! Espesh considering that I know I have put on a lot around my hips and thighs ! :')

I wish I could fall asleep for 13 weeks and have squiggle here now!! Xxxxx

Yes at nearly 7 months with twins you are the size of about 8 months! That's good BlondeP!
Booked my glucose test for next week, the receptionist said I didn't have to fast though, just the Lucozade and nothing else 45 minutes before the appointment. Hope that's correct!

Blueflower I would double check the fasting as it's unusal for this particular test not to be fasting as they check the way your gluscose rises after the lucozade. I could be wrong but I've not heard of a non fasting one? It's not routine for everyone in our area though, only people with the risk factors. X

I'm about the same size as my nearly full term singleton mums in our. NCT group lol! But luckily people are surprised how I'm only bump so far ! I said wait for a few more weeks ha ha

Mmmm Wagamamas and chicken katsu curry!

Laura exciting that Moses basket is up yay x

Yeah, I was told you're full term size for a single at around 30 weeks with twins. Suppose it makes sense because I'm currently carrying almost 6 pounds of baby at not even 28 weeks, and lots of singletons weigh that when born don't they. Also extra fluid and an extra placenta for non-id twins. Eugh.

Oh and re not fasting, I researched glucose tests just last night so I think I know the answer! There are two types of test, the 10 hour fasting one or just the 1ish hour one. The 45 mins-1 hour fasting one is a bit less in-depth and the results are a bit harder to interpret but generally it's good enough. I think they make you do the longer fasting one only if they suspect a problem xx

That's it isn't it! And like you say the extra fluid and placentas as well lol
