today's update

Thank you all for your concern about my test today. Let me tell you that stuff is NASTYYYYY!!! I told them that they need to provide tooth brushes for use right after drinking it!... but the girl just said, but then you may swallow water and it would alter the results... well duhhh but still!

Anyway. I felt terrible after drinking it and let me tell you the baby was all over the place. By the time I was done I was sooo done. I did have a lot of laughs watching people in the waiting room. It is spring break down here for the schools so there were a lot of kids. At the place I went you can call or set up an appointment on-line and yet most people were walk-ins. They'd walk in and there would not be a seat anywhere and then they'd get upset when they heard they may have to wait an hour or so. Oh and when a person who had an appointment was taken before them, you'd think it was the end of the world. The lady at the desk told a few people... go call and make an appointment we have openings at ___, ___, and ___ today then come back and you won't have to wait as long... "NO I'm going to be seen soon" ok but there is an hour wait. Helloooo people complaining won't get you in there faster!

Richard came and picked me up after my last round of blood work and took me out to lunch. I almost made it home without feeling like I was going to be sick. But, I had to pull into a neighborhood park and have my mom come get me. I do not understand why they think that it is good for a pregnant person to go that long without eating and 3 hours without as much as water is pretty much torture!

Oh well... now the wait is on until I hear how these results come out. And yes, I'll keep you posted!!


  1. I think this is my first visit to your site ... though you've so awesomely commented on mine!

    I pray things go well!
    I'm going to read around on your blog a bit :)

  2. Yeah for hubby coming to take you to lunch. Sorry about the trip home though. I hope it all works out well. I will be thinking and praying for you!

  3. Hooray! You got through it without barfing. Lots of people barf because it's so gross and your blood sugar gets so wacked out during the test. I HATED HATED HATED it. Glad it's over!

  4. I am glad to hear the test went well. I have not so fond memories of that test too! i felt like I was on speed after drinking that stuff. I couldn't focus my eyes to read in the waiting room!

    I never understand how people walk-in and expect to be seen. I would never do that- maybe that is why I end up waiting three weeks for an appointment. Keep us updated.

  5. glad it went well...sorry you got sick. hopefully the results come back with good news!

    oh and i may have a girl next never know. i really probably wont mind if its another boy, but a little girl would be nice!

  6. ICK! I know how awful it is, but I am glad it's over.

    Have a great weekend!

  7. ug. I had to do that 3 hr sit there and wait thing too and it sucked!!! At least you've only got 8 weeks...although in pregnancy only 8 weeks doesn't exactly zoom by. :( Hang in there, girlie. Glad it's OVER!!!
