Glucose Test


Yesterday I went in for my sugar test...when I got there they pricked my finger to see what my sugar level was at, then had me drink the juice and wait for one hour. After the hour they pricked my finger again and said that I failed the test. I missed it by 3 points. So, that meant that I had to go in for the 3 hour test and do it all again. Today I woke up at 7 and went to LabCorp to do my three hour test which started at 8. They make you fast so I stopped eating at 8 o'clock the night before so I could make the full 12 hour fast. When I got there they drew my blood, and then had me drink the juice which was way stronger than yesterdays (and thicker) after I got it all down I waited until 9:05 to draw my blood again. They drew blood again at 10:05 and then 11:05. It wasn't any fun at all because I used both arms due to the fact that the one arm was getting really sore. On my last draw she couldn't get any blood to come out so she had to draw from the other arm. That made a total of 3 holes on both arms...my arms are sore and bruised now haha. But it's ok! It was well worth it.

Right after my appoinment I went over to my Doctor's office to do some 3D ultrasound pictures. Misi wasn't able to come with me because he had to take a test but it ended up being ok because we couldn't get very good pictures. The baby had her hands on front of her face the entire time and at one point her arms were making a full X which pretty much said she wasn't interested in moving. I tried to stand up and roll over a couple times but she wasn't about to move. The Doctor did take a couple side profiles that were good, but not what he wanted. I will be going back in tomorrow afternoon and try one last time to get some good pictures!

That's the lastest so far. We have a busy couple of days ahead of us, and another busy weekend! Misi is going to Houston to try out for another arena team, and we are in the process of getting everything packed and ready to head back to Utah.

Oh wow that story did not sound very fun. I was so scared I was going to have to go back for the three hour one but luckily I passed, I am just a bit anemic (low on iron) whoops! To answer your house questioned, Moss got offered another job with the city and his boss at this job didn't want him to leave at all so he said he would let us rent from him for pretty cheap and live in sweet houses, he is a developer too so he has a lot extra hanging around:) Eventually he will build us a house...that's the short version haha

hey, would it be so fun to be neighbors? Oh, that would be my dream! Remember how you're having a baby in less than 3 months? Any baby showers planned?

Hey... he does a little bit of renting but all of the homes around here are full right now they are about 2000/month so its a lot for just renting but http://preferredstgeorge.com/rentals is a good website for finding apartments around here. Good luck:)
