Glucose or 3 sticks...

Stick 1--- I had my lovely glucose test today... I PASSED!! Woo Hoo!! It was supposed to be lower than 135 and mine was 129! That orange drink was very sweet and not enjoyable, but I downed it in about a minute, I just wanted to get it done.  

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.
