Updated Sugar and Spice

Well the 1 hr gtt isn't that bad I have done that once before passed just fine - let's hope/pray the same for this test. (thank you for all the prayers)

My ob's appointment today as wacky. I got there and once again, the dr i was supposed to see was not there and the office called the wrong number to tell me (they blamed the new computer system- which is fine - we corrected it) So we showed up anyway - and got seen by my very fav dr - so it was a win situation for me. I lost a lb from the last appointment but no one is really concerned. I had loads of sugar in my urine (but I told then that I would before I even pee'd in the cup from the gtt test) There was an excess of red blood cells in my urine. They asked if I was bleeding, had bled or spotted or was feeling any weird pressure. I told them that I was feeling some pressure but I assumed it was the baby just growing and sitting(read or using my bladder as a punching bag). I reminded them that this is my first pregnancy that has made it this far so I don't know what "weird pressure" feels like. They are sending my urine out to a lab to see if I have a uti or a bladder infection. Let's hope No to both!! Please and thank you.

I have another appoint with the OB in 3 weeks (may 5). I will be changing from lo.ve.nox to he.per.in at 34 weeks then I will go every 2 weeks after that appointment. Wow getting close.

I told my dr about the leap yr changing our due date - she laughed and said - "yah cuz babies know it's leap yr." We got a good laugh out of that! I hope everyone has a great weekend

Glad things went so well. ;)
You are getting SO CLOSE! How exciting. Time flies when you're having fun, right?

Jen said...

I will keep my fingers crossed that the lab finds nothing wrong!

It makes sense that you have a little blood in your urine since Mini is being so abusive to your bladder. (and that's my medical opinion hahahaha!!) I'll keep you in my prayers for no UTI!

Wow...you're right, it is getting closer.

Why the switch from lov.enox to hep.arin?

The time is flying!! Wow!! It's so exciting. But a mere question, how come it's flying for you but not for me in my life? lol. Anyways, I'm so excited for you! It's amazing! Thank you for allowing us to share this journey with you!

Yay for another good appointment!

Here's hoping all tests and lab results come back 100% perfecto.

Have a great weekend :)

Glad your 1 hr gtt is over - hope the results are good! And, really hoping you do not have UTI or bladder infection. Ugh!!

Hey girl, I'm glad things are going well. As far the increase in RBC in your urine - the most common reason we see it has been just a simple urinary tract infection. It can also be seen in our patients who come in with kidney stones. Every now and then it can be benign and mean nothing. So worst case, even if it is a urinary tract infection it should clear up on antibiotics that they can give you that are safe for baby. But I hope it is nothing and I hope you are feeling better soon. (You and me both :-) Thanks as always for following along my path sweetie!

Hopefully you don't have a UTI or anything. Yuck! I hate those!

sara said...

Hey girl...just checking back to see how you're feeling. Did they say when they would get the results on the pee front back from the lab? I don't mean to keep brining it up, I was just wondering how you were doing. :-)

Kristen said...

I'm so glad your appt went well and you were seen by your fave! I will be hoping you don't have a nasty UTI. I hate those things!

It is getting very close. I hear the third trimester flies so I'm sure you'll be holding your little man before you know it :)

Glad to hear it went well. I had sugar on my urine all my pregnancy and everything was okay.

Still Praying for you...

I SO hope your results come back fine! However, if they don't...speaking from experience, the 3 hour test isn't that horrid. I actually didn't mind it much at all aside from the time it takes.
