28 Week Appointment

Friday, 6.17.11, I had my 28 week check-up and 1 hour glucose test.

I was FREAKED out about the 1 hr test. I was so nervous that I wouldn't keep the drink down. Someone had told me the night before that it tasted like S.unkist. I laughed. Well, it did! For the first few ounces anyway. By the time I was almost done, it tasted like pure sugar. I started drinking it at 10am and by 10:05 I was finished (after only a few gags).

Once we got to the office and signed in, I turned in my empty bottle. The closer it got to 11am, I started to panic. They hadn't yet called me back and sometimes it can be VERY difficult to get blood from me. So, I went and reminded the receptionist.

I was in luck, the bloodwork part went just fine. Then, we went through the basics (all the normals checks).

The midwife came in not much later. I measured right on at 28cm, her HB was between 140 & 150 and I received more of an explanation about the UTI. I won't go into details, but it totally freaked me out. She answered all of my questions (I am cleared for pedicures, it's normal to have night-sweats, it's ok for parts of me to be falling asleep randomly, etc... :) )!

All went well. Our 3/4D ultrasound is set for 6.29.11. Our 32 week appointment is scheduled for 7.13.11. After that, we will go in for check-ups every two weeks for two appointments and then every week until delivery. Ummm, wow!

Hopefully, if I hear from the office before my next appointment it's only good news.... I really, really don't want to take the 3 hour glucose test!

Glad all went well! Every two weeks means you are in the home stretch! I failed my 1 hr test by 8 points, and yes, the 3 hr test isn't fun, but you will get through it.
