How awesome is this picture? Looks like I'm growing a worm, but I wanted to put some sort of picture up.
I had quite an interesting doctor's appointment. First off I am estimated to be 5 weeks & 5 days along. I can tell this is going to be a long one. Well I had my usual natal checkups, questions, and blood tests. The blood tests turned out to be not so normal. On your first visit they have to take a lot of blood because they do so many tests on it. (Most of you know my history with needles, and know I went to therapy for it and was doing great). Since it took longer than usual I started feeling a little icky towards the end, so I tried to do my breathing to get over it. That didn't help so they brought me some juice. Meanwhile my vision was like 'snow' on a TV set and my hearing was going out. They asked if I wanted to go lay down and I did so I had a nurse on each side of me take me to another room. All I remember was standing up and then waking up on a table and the nurse patting my cheek and saying, "are you with us?" I had passed out for my first time, and not only once I guess, but 3 times and they told me I seized! So weird. I just felt like I fell asleep and was dreaming. (Viewer discretion advised on this next part) I woke up very sweaty so they brought me some cold presses and I guess the whole ordeal didn't sit well with my stomach and I had to go to the bathroom right away even though I was still woozy. The nurse wanted to make sure I didn't fall over on the toilet so she kept the door open while I had diarrhea. So embarrassing! They wanted Ethan to come pick me up, but their office is like 45 minutes from our house and I didn't want to come back to get my car, so I had to stay in the waiting room till they said it was ok for me to go. What a day!
