Wow. Three hours at the hospital was way too much for me today.
My first stop was at the Women’s Center laboratory to get my blood drawn for my Rh Negative shot. I have terrible veins and was definitely dreading that. They informed me it takes 2 hours to formulate the shot correctly.
Then it was off to my doctor appointment. I had to drink the glucose drink. Yuck. I chose the orange flavor. It actually wasn’t that bad, kind of like a flat Orange Crush. I was reading the side of the bottle about the side effects. I was lucky; I didn’t have any adverse reaction. I’m confident that I passed my glucose test. But obviously I will have to await the results to know for sure.
I had an extra ultrasound today too to check on the spot on his heart. The technician told me that it was “miniscule” and in the pictures that I was able to come home with, it does indeed look like it has shrunk – so maybe things will work out in the end after all in regards to that 🙂 He weighs 2lbs4oz and is measuring perfectly for 27 weeks.
Then it was time to see the actual doctor. Everything seems to be right on track. My weight is still perfect for where it needs to be. I have actually had a very textbook pregnancy. I’m thankful for that. Of course I know that it can change at any moment, but for now things are progressing perfectly.
I am now going to be going back to the doctor every two weeks (it was every 4). So that makes my next appointment on March 19th. And this one will be an exciting one!! We are going to be getting our 4D Ultrasound! Woo! I’ve already invited my parents and Nathan is going to invite his parents (although they have a stricter work schedule than my parents and more than likely won’t be able to come). I hope that this will provide a nice distraction for my parents considering all that they’re having to do with regards to their house and my grandparents’ homes in the aftermath of the tornado.
I guess that’s all I’ve got for now. I’ve been a busy little bee trying to get my books back organized in their proper places. I had to move them all when we got the new carpet laid, and I’m just now getting around to putting them back. Plus I’m making a major purge of books while I’m at it. I have right around 300 books and will be donating or trading at least 55 of them. That will be a big relief for me. I can’t read all these books. And I’m finding that a lot of them just don’t appeal to me anymore, so why keep them around? I’m a hoarder, that’s why!
Hope everyone has a good rest of the week.

Sounds like you and the baby are doing well so far….I’m glad to hear it!! I hated the glucose test…and waiting around for an hour was a pain too (except I always used it to read). LOL! How exciting that you get a 4D ultrasound although I have no idea what that means 🙂 I know that the 3D one kinda freaked me out but I’m weird like that. Good luck!
Im glad you are doing ok!
and Im sorry to hear about the Tornado tragedy..hope all of your family is ok!
