We are getting closer, and I am getting more uncomfortable by the day. Things are still going well, but I am just getting achy and I just can't seem to get comfortable. Only 11 or 12 weeks left! I am still struggling with what to do about the delivery, but at the moment I'm leaning toward just scheduling a c-section. I do not take this decision lightly. There are many pros and cons either way. I will still consider it all though. No final decisions will be made for a while.
I had my glucose tolerance test this morning. It wasn't too bad. The drink was not good, but it was tolerable. The worst part was being hungry. I typically eat breakfast right away after a shower in the morning and its hard for me to not eat. I just hope I pass this so I don't have to do the 3 hour test. That would be difficult for me. The phlebotomist this morning was the best one I've had in a long time though. I told her about my blood draw problems, but amazingly she didn't have any problem at all! She hit the vein right away. I was extremely happy about that. Darren suggested I get her business card and call her every time I need blood drawn. I have to say its tempting. :)
My birthday was last week. I didn't know what I wanted for presents, so Darren didn't really get me much. Of course, his "not much" turned out to be the best present a pregnant woman could ever have! He bought me a grabber. It sounds silly, but I love it! I've been having a hard time bending over and its really difficult to pick up the dog bowls off the ground. The grabber is a tremendous help because I can pick up the dog bowls now without any problem. I also discovered today that the grabber makes it possible to play ball with my ball obsessed dog again! Poor Doogie has been neglected for several weeks because I just couldn't pick up the ball off the ground anymore. Now I can pick up the ball without bending over, and my little dog is a very happy boy!
My next doctor's appointment is this Wednesday. It should be just another routine appointment. I will probably get the results of my glucose test then. Hopefully its good news!
