Stick 2--- On the other hand, my hemoglobin was too low. It was 9.8, when it should be around 12. That means that I have to take an iron supplement. Much better than having to do a 3 hour glucose test or poke myself and give myself shots 4 times a day. BUT... this was a finger prick test! HOLY CRAP that hurt sooooooooooooooo bad!!!!! Now, I have to do it AGAIN at my next appointment to see if it's gone up. Oh I hope so!! I don't want my finger pricked again!!
Stick 3--- I had to get a Rhogam shot. That's because Will's A+ blood type and I'm O-. Thus, this pregnancy will be fine, but the next one... maybe not. My blood could essentially fight off Will's blood and make miscarriages possible. So, I had to get this shot, and I'll have to get one after I deliver. I'll have to do it again with each pregnancy in the future.
