Flat Orange Soda...Yum

Finished the Glucose Challenge Test this morning - and it wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. The drink was sweet but not terrible. Maybe it helped that Dr. OB gave it to me beforehand and I had the chance to chill it in the refrigerator first.
The only side effects from the drink are some dizziness and now feeling pretty tired. Glad I took the day off of work to nap in case I needed it. Formerly Pregnant co-worker told me she needed to afterward.

Next OB appointment is on Monday. They won't have my results yet - I think it takes about a week for them to get them. But I'm not too worried. J is diabetic and I've used his tester a few times this past week. I checked a fasting level, and levels after eating and drinking two big glasses of OJ. All of those results were normal so I'm hoping the GCT results will be fine.

Ultrasound on Monday too! I'm excited about that and J is able to go to this appointment with me. I love every peek inside that I can get.

I'm glad it went as well as could be expected. Mine isn't for two weeks -- and it's the same day as an appointment, so I'm not sure how that's supposed to work. I guess I'll have to call. I hope Monday's appointment goes well -- and I hope we get to see u/s photos afterwards!
