Here is what made my afternoon so gross! I thought I would take a picture of it in ALL it's glory! I had to take my glucose tolerance test today. This was just a routine test, with a lot of grief attached to it. First, I have been waking up a lot later this week, and I didn't realize that not only did I need to time my drinking of this vile junk, I also could not eat 2 hours prior to the drinking. I woke up after 10am and had my pop-tarts and then when I actually figured out my timeline, I had to eat again by no later than noon. I got to work making some egg salad sandwiches and forced myself to eat one. I was done with it by 12:30pm and was so worn out that I had to take a nap! I have been really tired this week!! I have napped and slept late every day.
My appt was at 3:2opm, but since I drank the yuckness at 2:30, they needed to take blood at 3:30pm. It worked out perfectly because they drew blood while I was waiting to be called back for my appointment. I love my doctor!! She said that she was not worried about the glucose test because I have stayed in really good shape throughout my pregnancy. She said that they would call within a few days only if there was a problem, otherwise I would talk about the results at my next appointment in 3 weeks. I am not worried. I just keep having flashbacks to that orange junk. I think that my experience would not have been so bad except for I have not had a soda for 2 years and then I had to drink the equivalent of a flat one! GROSS....
I am going to try to figure out how to post more than 5 pictures to a post tomorrow so that I can share some of my baby shower!!!
