26 Weeks

This past week was pretty uneventful except for taking my first Glucose Test.

I've always heard everyone complain how nasty the juice is you have to drink before the test so I allowed myself about 15 minutes to drink it in case it made me sick but I thought it was refreshing and made myself drag out 5 minutes to drink it so I wouldn't be early for my test.

Of course they had to take three vials of blood and somewhere on the second one I got really dizzy and told her I was going to pass out and she needed to find me a place to lay down quick. They had to kick another patient out of the room she was in because it was the only one with a bench and I had to lay there until I recovered. So, you know, just another regular day in the life for me....;)

We're really starting to think about all the projects we want to get done around the house before Baby Girl gets here and they are stacking up quickly. That's been a little overwhelming trying to make the right decisions and I'll be glad when we finally make some. Steve wants to start cleaning out the room that will be the nursery this weekend as we'll have to relocate his home office.

I had to laugh at Steve last night because he had a "sympathy symptom" with me. I couldn't sleep so I was up around 3:30am watching TV in bed when heartburn suddenly made it's appearance. I reached over as quiet as I could to open my Tums bottle when I see Steve whip his hand over for me to give him one too.  Heartburn or midnight snack? I'll never know...

On a separate note: I'm so happy to report that my itching has tapered off substantially! Thank you for the prayers...they worked!

  1. YAY!!! Glad to hear the itching has tapered off:) Glucose test that's one thing I haven't had to do, since I'm diabetic, no need to take the test. I too have heard others complain about the taste etc. glad it wasn't so bad aside from almost passing out! Yikes! Thinking about you:)
