Dum, Dum, Dummm....
I say "Dum, Dum, Dummm..." because normally they just leave me a message that tells me that my test results are back and for me to call the automated test results number and check on 'em. So, I immediately had a feeling...this ain't good.
So, I call the lady back and she tells me that:
1. I'm anemic (How weird is this...I take a prentatal vitamin with iron in it everyday!) So, now I need to add on another iron pill to help. This news actually made me feel validated because I have felt EXHAUSTED lately and so run-down. I thought it was just because of busy time at work but the anemia adds in, too.
2. I didn't do so well on my gestational diabetes test on Tuesday. "Slightly elevated" were her words though she might just have been trying to be nice. It was just the baseline test so now I have to go back tomorrow morning at 7:30a.m. and drink the supery sugary drink and stay for 3 1/2 to 4 hours (geez!) while they draw my blood. Also, I have to fast beginning at 10 p.m. ... including fasting from water.
They clearly don't know that I drink two full glasses of water DURING the sleeping hours, do they? Also, you don't get any water during the testing tomorrow which may be the death of me. ( I drink a lot of water.)
So, I had a slight breakdown where I felt like I was a bad mother already and that I should've been doing things differently and eating more hunks of red meat of which Adam was able to talk me down and remind me of all the pregnant women who eat fast food every meal and wasn't I doing so much better than them? Thanks husband. So, I'll keep y'all posted with the results. Thanks for listening to my rant.
Regardless of the results, we praise God for this little nugget growing inside of me and the blessing that he's already been.
