May I vent to you all for a minute? I'm feeling really frustrated with myself today. I had a script to get blood work done this week (week 28) and I knew I had to do the glucose test at some point but didn't realize it was on the same script. So anyway rather than taking the glucola or whatever it's called and fasting for an hour, my midwife and I discussed me having a large breakfast, waiting an hour and getting tested. I've been so busy lately I completely forgot all about it last week when I actually had a weekday off. I've been searching for a new house (we have until the end of March to find a place!), searching for a pediatrician for after the baby comes (finally found one last week!), and I got picked to be a grand juror so I have that every thursday now. Oh and we've started our childbirth class too! And of course I work full time too. Anyway I forgot all about it and thank God I remembered to get my blood work done today (half an hour before the lab closed!). I looked at the sheet and remembered the glucose test and realized that I wasn't ready for it at all. So now I'm going to have to ask for a new script for it and I guess I'll just have to do it next week after my midwife appointment. But it bugs me because it was supposed to be done in weeks 24-28. One week shouldn't matter right? The thing I feel most guilty about though is that I barely had anything to eat today before I got my blood drawn! I was so busy at work today all I had was a bowl of cereal, a cereal bar and then a sandwich from the time I woke up until getting my blood drawn at 3:45pm. I didn't even remember to take my vitamin today! And I haven't been eating quite as healthy the past couple days so I feel like my results are going to look much worse than they would normally. I usually do eat very healthy! I just feel disappointed with myself that I haven't been putting my pregnancy first. Anyone else ever feel like that? Sorry to vent I know I shouldn't worry so much but I just felt like I needed some reassurance that not being perfect is okay sometimes..
I'm so sorry! I've done that a couple of times this pregnancy, too. *hugs* I promise that not being perfect sometimes will not mess anything up. With DD, I ate *so* poorly. Sometimes, I ate a bunch of food (*not* all healthy), sometimes I didn't eat any, and one day, (I'm not real proud of this, but if this doesn't reassure, I don't know what will. ) I ate an entire box of Little Debbie Fall Harvest cakes in, like, 2 hours. And she was born as perfect as could be (considering the [unrelated to anything I did, besides trusting my OB, I had a very bad OB] circumstances). I'm sure everything will be fine, but I do understand the frustration when you try to do well, and mess up, or not feeling like you are worrying enough.*hugs*
