First of all, I went in Monday morning for my 3 hour glucose test. Happy to say I survived, with minimal discomfort, but no results yet. I'm hoping to hear tomorrow, as it took them 2 days last week to let me know the results.
If you've never experienced it, here's a rundown.
You have to fast before the test, so I was ordered to stop eating and drinking at midnight on Sunday. Monday morning at 8:30, I went into the office where they drew a fasting blood draw, then proceeded to have me drink an even sweeter version of the drink from the one hour test. I had 5 minutes to drink it all...I just tried to chug it. I was hoping for a little bit of water after that, but the lab tech said no. Back to the waiting room I went, waiting for an hour. Then my name was called, and they stuck my other arm for more blood work. Rinse and repeat, I did that 2 more times. The worst point was between hour 2 and 3, when I became super sleepy and a little shaky.
Finally, at about 11:45, I was free to go.
First thing I did was crack open the water bottle I brought and drank it down. Then I quickly consumed the cereal bar I brought, hoping to stave off a headache that was brewing. After getting home, I ate lunch and napped. Overall, it wasn't too bad...fingers crossed that I pass!
We have an old house...I'm a sucker for the character that comes with them, but they do have downfalls.
When we bought our home, it was a 3 bedroom with one full bath. Over the years, we added a 4th bedroom and a full bathroom upstairs, along with repainting and refinishing floors. It's worked out great for us, as the nursery was upstairs with the master bedroom...and one of the bedrooms downstairs became a playroom.
Needless to say, with 2 more babies moving in, Miss O. needs to be relocated.
We've decided to move her downstairs into her play room, and the babies will get her room upstairs. M. is currently downstairs priming the play room, and he's banished me upstairs to our bedroom while he works.
I feel bad, as we've always tackled home improvement jobs as a team but at least I'll be able to catch up on some blog reading!
