Fun Morning...Ha

Today I had to go to get my blood drawn. Aunty and Sara volunteered to watch you while I was gone. I dropped you off around 8:30 and headed to the lab. Because they were checking for gestational diabetes I was suppose to drink this sugary drink and sit there for an hour. As soon as I walked in the door, I knew it was going to be a long morning. Practically every single chair in the office was taken. I immediately went to the check in desk and signed my name. I stood there waiting to give them my order slip but the man rudely told me to sit down and they would call me. Me being the polite person that I am, I smiled and sat down.

A half an hour later they called me up. I handed the “lovely” man my slip and he looked at it and under his breath and said, “oh you are getting tested for gestational diabetes, I should have asked before.” He didn’t think to ask a VERY pregnant woman what she was there for. EVERY PREGNANT WOMAN is tested for this at the same point in the pregnancy. He probably sees pregnant women there almost every day. Normally, I wouldn’t be so annoyed but I had to fast since the night before. So not only am I a six and a half month hormonal pregnant woman, I am a hungry one. And instead of waiting one hour for the drink to fester in my body, I had to wait an extra half hour. Can you tell I was quite pissed.

When the hour was up, I walked right up to the front desk to remind them that the time was up. You will never guess, he asked me to sit down again. AHHHH!!!! So again I did. Ten minutes later they called me, but not until they called five people before me that had arrived WAY after me. They took my blood and tried to be nice but I was having none of that. Don’t mess with a hungry pregnant lady. Oh, and he told me if I didn’t pass this test, the next one was three hours long. Great! Just my luck!
