Today was an adventure! Started the day off with a regular OB appointment where I had a prenatal depression screening (I’m good!), had a bunch of questions answered for me and heard the baby’s heartbeat (155!). The heartbeat doppler and some other measurements were done by a med student which was fine with me- he’s gotta learn somehow- but he was so nervous it was kind of cute. He was struggling to locate a heartbeat and the doctor looked up from her notes, pointed to an exact spot on my belly and as soon as he put the scanner there it was right on. Like she just knew without any hesitation or anything which was so cool.
Then, I headed down to the lab to get some blood drawn and do the glucose test. It was straight up cherry sugar water and the first half was fine, but by the end it started to burn a little bit. Got it down and then just hung out and read for an hour, until it was time to have blood drawn.
THEN! I went over to the immunizations office (all in the same huge building, by the way) to get my tdap booster. I was supposed to also get a flu shot, but they were still only giving them to staff, so I’ll have to go back.
By the time all that was done, my lab results were in and I PASSED the glucose test! However I do have some low iron levels, so I’m going to be prescribed some iron supplements for that. Other than than though, everything is good! Now I’m ready for a nap.
