Thanks for the support about the 3 hour test, everyone. I am going to try the traditional test, and if I get sick, then I will insist on another option. I have a friend who just gave birth that had the exact same one hour score that I do (although fewer family risk factors) and she passed the 3 hour easily. So here's hoping! They are sending the order in the mail so I will probably do the 3-hour later in the week next week.
I hope everyone has a nice long-weekend planned. Anyone have any special plans or goals?
I am so happy to have huz home for three days. He is going to paint the baby's room! I am so excited about that. I am going to try to get into some cleaning and organizing while he works. I have actually finally started a to-do list although it's not nearly done.
I got sick last night because I forgot to take my pepcid before dinner. Ugh, it makes me so miserable, it's so funny that one little pill is like magic for me! I literally feel totally fine and normal if I take it, but getting sick can wipe me out for a whole day. I am still recovering. One thing I have trouble with, especially in this heat, is not drinking too much fluid when I eat/after I eat. My stomach can just no longer handle the amount of water I usually drink, but I still want that much and I feel weird if I don't drink it. I'll have to work on hydrating between meals and letting that have time to process.
Not only will it be wonderful to hold my baby in 11 weeks or less, I will be SO happy to go back to my former, non-pukey self.
My iron levels were also a little low, not surprising because I've been taking gummy vitamins with no iron. I'm trying to get back to taking my prenatals (Rainbow light) and I tried soy milk with blackstrap molasses last night but unfortunately that was right before I got sick.
