i'm all out of blood


Today was the day I had to take my blood tests to find out if I have gestational diabetes or not, due to my pregnancy. For those who haven't read a previous post, I had to take these tests because my baby is in the 90th percentile for his size and when a baby is that big it could mean that there's a possibility that the mother is diabetic.
Therefore my morning consisted of no breakfast as I had to fast for 12hrs. A blood test at 9:15am. Then followed by a nasty drink which tasted like medicated flat orange crush. Tasted not so bad, seeing as I was starving and thirsty. I had 5-10 minutes to drink the bottle. An hour later, 10:40, another blood test. Keep in mind I still have not eaten anything since 9pm the night before. I'm now cranky, tired, & friggin hungry. But it's not over. Another hour of waiting. (Thank God Andrew was there to keep me company as the waiting room did not have any magazines and stupid me forgot to bring anything remotely entertaining to help pass the time.) Did I mention that I was not allowed to go anywhere during the wait? My ass had to be glued to the seat. Anyway, at 11:40, my last blood test. Done! I can now go to work. I made it there just in time for lunch and let me tell you, I devoured my food as if I hadn't eaten in days.
I really hope the tests come in negative and we're just having a normal healthy big baby boy :) Stay tune for the results.

On another note, I apologize for the pictures. We took them inside with such bad lighting. Today has been dark, gloomy, rainy, & cold. UGH!!! Between the tests and the weather, it's just one of those days where you wish you hadn't gotten out of bed.
