So many fails this week already and it’s only Tuesday!
I got the results from my glucose tolerance test on Friday and I did not pass. They didn’t say that I failed, but they said to confirm diagnosis either way I will need to do the 3 hour glucose screening test. Like, I have to fast and then go to the OB office at 8am on Friday and have my blood drawn, then drink the glucose drink, and have my blood drawn 3 times after that once per hour to see how my blood reacts which will determine if I have gestational diabetes or not. I’m just going to have to sit there for hours… what the heck am I going to do for that long? Somehow from my results on Friday, they also determined that I am suddenly anemic so I need to take a slow release iron supplement. I was like: geez, anything else?
I tried to give myself an at home pedicure. Turns out that I can’t bend over enough to do this, but once I got started it was just too late. So tonight was the very last time that I do this because it was a seriously horrible idea. I had to hold my breath to lean over enough to reach my toes, so I just did it really quickly. It was not worth the $25 saved, that’s for sure. I’m pretty sure that it looks like shit, but I can’t clearly tell because my feet are so far away. In two weeks, I’ll remedy this! This is just ridiculous.
I haven’t been sleeping much. I can’t fall asleep until late, and then I’m up before 5am totally awake. So I spend my days feeling and looking like a zombie, only to not be tired when it’s time to go to sleep at night. Also, if I sit too long my pelvis hurts. If I walk too long, my pelvis hurts. I can’t seem to win that battle. The glowing cute pregnant woman is not what I’m exuding right now.
