My poor OB nurse is working for her pay with me. I know that she will be soooo very very glad when I have delivered Mini.
She worked for her $'s today and yesterday and found a lab (actually the L&D Lab Center of the hospital I will deliver at) who will administer a pick line( not sure if that is the correct medical term for it). They will flush it out with hep.arin before each draw (since we know I respond fine to hep.) I am instructed to get 150 grams of extra carbs a day for 3 days prior to the test. I will take the test Tuesday morning - so Monday night, I am instructed to stop eating/drinking at midnight. After I receive my first fasting blood specimen, I can have water.
They wanted me to take the test Monday, but I have my MFM appointment at 9 and it is very far away from the hospital in which I need to go to. So it has to be tuesday. On Monday- we get another growth scan. I cannot wait and still hope that there will be only good news from that.
This eases my mind some what. It is still filled with worry, anxiety, fear, disappointment, guilt etc. I limit my sugars as it is. (very rare do I enduldge on juices/sodas, candy, cookies, sweets, etc) I was worried this would happen since we already knew I am insulin resistant. I know in my heart, no matter what, I will be ok ..It's my mind that is off filling my head with bad things.
The nurse at the ob's on friday did not send in my urine for analysis - therefore the ob nurse asked today if I would repeat that urine sample to check for a UTI. I am going tomorrow morning to a lab to do that urine sample - she was so upset that I have to do it again. (and very apologetic) She is so sweet to me - I told her that it was easy to stop in a do a urine sample. She had done me a huge favor and made me feel much better abut the gtt test that I had absolutely no problem doing a urine sample over.
This is all no big deal- I know -pregnancy hormones make everything seem like the end of the world. There is just so much fear involved. I know that this too shall pass.. and so will I. Thank you for the kind words/comments/thoughts/prayers.
