I did my early 1 hour glucose tolerance test yesterday. I've done a couple 2 hours (cause of the PCOS) before and never really minded the drink, but the stuff they gave me for the 1 hour was AWFUL. I could barely get it down in the 5 minutes. I've always gotten a not too unpleasant flat soda like drink before (namely orange Glucola). I said something to the tech about how awful it was compared to the glucola and she said that they don't make glucola in 50gram (1 hour) doses. I'm not looking forward to having to do that again (which I will, probably around 28 or 30 weeks).
They hadn't got some additional blood work from my McSoothy's office I was suppose to do so I set about trying to get a copy of that order sent over before my blood draw at the end. And I was successful, but I officially put McSoothy's FAX machine on the "Not to be trusted" list.
At the end of my time I took out my glucometer so that I can compare it with the actual lab result when I get them. I got a 118 which, if my glucometer is accurate at all, means I should have passed. I think passing is less than 140 for these.
And later in the day someone called from the High Risk OB's office and let me know my thyroid results were "excellent". I didn't ask for the actual level because I know I would end up googling and second guessing. Not activities I need to be doing. But I have to say that I was really impressed that someone called me back just 2 days after I had blood work done for normal test results... I usually can't get that for abnormal ones. Gold star.
I now take 18 pills per day. 5 for breakfast, 4 for lunch, and 9 for dinner. Oh well, at least I just have to swallow them.
We are making solid progress on the bedroom situation. The office/guest room is virtually complete. DH took the week off (since he works for the govt and gets all kinds of time off) and we have the base paint in the kid room and he's finishing the closet system today. This closet redo is my crack. I have been looking forward to doing this as much as any other baby prep related task. I just wish I had some baby stuff to put in it now.
I'd post pictures, but I think it will be more fun just to wait until everything is done.
