How it’s all going…

Today, I had to make a dr. visit to get the infamous orange drink glucose test. It’s an early test because of some past medical problems and the rampant diabetes in my family. It wasn’t too bad except that I hadn’t eaten, and I feel terrible if I don’t have food in my stomach. So while they were drawing the blood, I proceeded to get hot, dizzy, and lightheaded. Tunnel vision was near. It’s embarrassing when that happens. But it was all over soon. I just had to lay down for a few minutes and drink the apple juice they brought me, and feel the cool wash cloth the put on my head. I’m glad it’s over! But then I had some food from Taco Bell, and magically felt better!

Tomorrow I’m going for my first ultrasound. I am SO excited to see the baby! I hope I don’t have to pretend to see the head and arms. 🙂 I’m sure with the ultra-sonographer’s help I will be able to see it pretty clearly. Yea!!

We’re heading to Virginia tomorrow after the ultrasound, so I will not be able to post for a while. I hope you all have a wonderful, safe, and blessed 4th of July!
