Time is just passing me by. And I know I have said this before, but good lord. A few things have happened in the past few weeks as baby grows.
First of all, I did the dreaded glucose test. I did it over a week ago, and the doctor was supposed to call me if the results were concerning- no call. The results take 2 days to get to my OB. So. FINGERS CROSSED. This all means what she said, no news is good news. The actual drink wasn't soon bad. It's super cold so it makes it easy to chug down. May I suggest- eat breakfast (which I did) and make sure its nothing that will spike your sugar. I went with classic, bacon and eggs. And drink lots of water, and PEE right before you walk in to take the drink. I wasn't aware you literally could not move, pee, leave the room- nada. You drink it and an hour later, have you blood taken. The first 30 minutes was totally fine. Then, I get really hot and nauseous and light headed. Nobody before noon consumes that much sugar (or I don't) and it was starting to hit. AND I was dressed head to toe with boots because it was cold lol. I was just soaked in sweat and couldn't leave. Luckily I got it together for the time to take my blood. The guy who was doing it said he was thankful I didn't throw up- WTF.
In other news, I feel pretty good for growing a human. EXCEPT. I have had these past few weeks (not being dramatic) debilitating pain in my right glute that goes all the way down to my toes when it's acting up. I thought at first it was just tightness, causing dull/achy pain in my glutes. NOW it's sharp, bright, nerve pain. When it is aggravated, it causes weakness in my leg to the point where I lose my balance, have fallen, cant roll over in bed, or get out of bed. I have noticed it happens at the end of a work day or in a day where I'm busy in the house, or sitting etc. Just about everything makes it angry, and nothing really makes it go away. I have been managing with massage on the regular, yoga poses, stretching, foam rolling, baths, hot/cold therapy. It's a work in progress because this feels SOOOOO EARLY to have this problem. Who knows if its from years of doing massage and there was already an imbalance in my S/I joint, or that I have really bad knock-knees, who the heck knows.
Up next on the 16th is our 3D ultrasound, which we are so excited for. Slowly collecting baby things, and got our big things like car seat/bassinet from family :).
I know I am an eager little bird but I feel comfort in having things done and ready.
Over & out,
Aly & Mike
