I had my 25 week OB appointment + gestational diabetes screen today, and everything went well. We heard the baby's HB again and she was quite active today. My Dh thought it was hysterical when they whipped out a measuring tape to measure my bump! In previous appointments, they'd always just felt around for it. This time I just had to take a deep breath while they pressed around my abdominal area and then measured my uterus.
The gestational diabetes test wasn't too bad. I should get results by early next week. I drank the glucola at home. I had kept it in the fridge since my OB had mentioned it should taste better cold. It tasted like flat orange soda - not as horrible as I expected. I didn't throw up or get nauseous, but I definitely felt like something was "off" in my body - I think all that sugar was a bit shocking to my system! Then after a while, it wore off and now I just feel tired. I had to butt my way to the front of the line at the lab. I was like, I drank my glucola at 7:45 and I need my blood drawn NOW! LOL. They let me go right back and get it done. All in all, it wasn't bad at all.
