14 weeks to go! (that means I'm 26 weeks today)

Holy third trimester batman! I am so not ready for this stage for the pregnancy! Can someone please press pause?

I'm feeling fine so far. But I did get some discouraging news earlier this week. I had mentioned my glucose tolerance test. Well, I got a call from Dr. Brown's office and was informed that she is "a little concerned" with my tolerance level. Meaning that since their scale of acceptable glucose levels is 70-140 and mine was at 162 I get to go in for the 3 hour test next week.

Yeah right. 3 hours. I have a 2-year-old. I have a job. I have OTHER things to do with my time! Not to mention the fact that they will draw my blood 4 separate times. FOUR.


Just the thought makes me ill. I mean, she could only get 1 vile last time w/out having to jab/poke/prod/wiggle the needle. I can't imagine the fun I will have for this. 3 hours of sitting and staring at the walls, watching pregnant ladies come and go, dreading the needles, worrying about my test results, trying to kill time by reading. Oh, I so dread this.

I know, lots of people go through it. But I don't want to. I didn't have to with Elijah. What's wrong with me this time? I'm all messed up. Hypertension... blood sugar issues. Grr.
At least I feel ok.
