Starshine: I didn't have to fast for my glucose test. I started fasting once I got there.

And as far as childbirth classes go, I can't speak for the natural birthing classes (or Bradley classes), but my husband and I went to a generic childbirth class, and it was really pretty worthless. I already knew about everything they were talking about from going through nursing school and from doing my own research and reading, but it was good for my husband, who had no clue about anything. That's really the main reason we went, so that he wouldn't be going into it not knowing what the hell was going on, and so I wouldn't have to stop mid-contraction to explain things to him.

Also, everyone is telling Mr. Lullabee to expect a bed rest order for most of my pregnancy, since I had those incidents. Obviously I won't know until I see the doctor, but how true is it? Like, are they right, that most women who bleed, have troubling pregnancies?

Not necessarily. I had bleeding in my second trimester, and it scared the poo poo out of me. I went to labor and delivery, where they discovered via ultrasound that I had a low-lying placenta, which eventually resolved itself as the placenta moved up in my uterus and my baby got bigger. It would have to depend on the cause of the bleeding, I'm sure. I was told to avoid lifting really heavy things/people and to not have sex until the placenta was well away from my cervical opening.

Personally speaking I'm not a fan of inductions unless it's for a medical reason. Being close to your due date or over by a week is not a legit reason to induce imo.

I was induced for medical reasons (worsening preeclampsia), and welp, ended up in a C-section anyway. If your body's not ready, it's not ready.
