27 weeks #4

An interesting appointment today.
First, I gained 4 pounds in 2 weeks which brings my grand total weight gain to 30 lbs!
What the what?
I still don't get this weight gain.

Second, I had my glucose test today. I don't mind the test too much, but today I did.
Usually you go, drink the stuff, then an hour later they draw your blood.

Not so at my office.

They started off by taking my blood (4 vials worth!)
Then I drank the drink.
Then an hour later they took my blood.
Not done yet!
I had to wait ANOTHER hour and they took my blood again.
I don't like getting my blood taken. I especially don't like getting poked in the same place 3 TIMES!

I asked them about it and they said that's just how they do it in their office. I think it's a little overkill.

My arm hurts.

That's how it works at my office too. I had to do the test twice, because I am higher risk because my father has type 1 diabetes.

Yikes! Dr Folkestad's office never did it that way. My arm would hurt too. :( But you look beautiful 30 lbs & all!!
