Passing a test has never been more exciting!

I had my bi-weekly (already!!) OB visit and found out that I passed the dreaded glucose tolerance test!! I was so excited and relieved: I can eat chocolate and strawberries, and most importantly, don't have to prick my finger three times a day to check my sugar. Yay!!
So I thought I'd do an update on this little guy while I'm at it.
I am 31 weeks pregnant and have a very very pointy belly! Feeling pretty good, just really big already. I get tired pretty easily, which is quite annoying, but really not the end of the world (just makes me wonder what it'll be like when I'm, say, 39 weeks pregnant!) Getting up to pee four times in the middle of the night is also starting to get to me, but I've decided it's my body's way of preparing me for not sleeping once the babe is here (and I've done such a good job trying to forget how painful those nights were, sigh)
I had another growth u/s a couple of weeks ago (at 29 weeks) and he was measuring right on track at 3lbs4oz  (so 55th percentile), so he might not even be quite as big as the doctors were anticipating at first. I have another appointment in two weeks (at 33 weeks), so we'll see how he's growing then.
We did a tour of the hospital last weekend and it was a lovely (although smaller) facility. I'm starting to get really excited for him to get here!!
And no, still no name. We keep going over lists websites and reading up on names, and while we do have a few options, none of them seem to fit yet. A friend just sent me a few more websites I haven't seen yet, so I'm excited to check them out and see if anything stands out to us.

The glucose tolerance test wasn't any fun .. Did you do the 50 mg or the 100 mg one?

The 50mg one. The drink itself wasn't that bad, just tasted gross. The blood draw and waiting for the results were the bad part!
