Mmmmm so I spent all of last night trying to get to sleep but couldn't. Then I had the glucose screening, which was not that bad. The sugary drink they gave me was sort of like flat orange soda. After that, they tested my urine sample and told me I had sugar in my urine. Really? Wow. Sarcasm. The sugar drink hit my system HARD. I am jittery, and ADD and fidgeting like crazy. Also it gave me horrible gas. I don't know why but it was noxious.
My blood pressure is even better than last time. I'm at 112/86 instead of 120-something. I told the nurse that I would not like to see my weight, please, because it upsets me. She was great about it. My blood draw went great, found the vein immediately- one stick! Woo! Probably because my veins were bulging out from all the sugar.
I got some questions answered about when I get the results back, which should have been today, but my appointment was so late in the afternoon that the doctor's office closed shortly after my draw. I will get them tomorrow before noon. I met with my doctor and his new nurse practitioner. Once again, I'm right on the money for my growth, I'm average in heartbeat and everything else. I found out that I can start taking Xanax again if needed after birth, since my dosage is so low. He also said that anxiety medicine was okay to take, it is class C and D drugs that he is worried about (whichever those are!) He also thinks I won't need it as often as I used to, but I told him we will see. I don't deal with stress very well.
I got some recommendations for pediatricians and how soon he wants me to go to the hospital, which is really really.... early. As soon as I start having contractions or as soon as my water breaks, they want me to go to the hospital since it's my first one. Hmm we will see about that. He said not to worry, we will talk about this more after I hit 36 weeks.
I now go every 2 weeks to the doctor, woo hoo. Sarcasm. I go every 2 weeks until December 1st, then it's every week until I'm ready to pop.
Anyway, I'm off to play more Plants Vs Zombies.
