As if Mondays weren't hard enough on me, I get to go in to the lab bright and early at 7:45 am to do a two hour test. My doctor and med group don't do one hour tests because they feel that too many false failures come out of them. So, they start with a two hour test and if you fail, you go for three hours. At least I'll be able to have work to pass the time. And a book. I just remember when I did it around week 12, I nearly passed out because the drink made me so sleepy. I passed it early on and my doctor said she is pretty sure I will pass it again this time, but we have to do it. I never had GD before. I guess I am a little nervous, but it should be okay. They are also going to do a draw to check for anemia and also check my T4 levels to make sure the thyroid medication dose change is enough or if she needs to adjust it again.
I had forgotten how busy this time of the pregnancy is.
