That wasn't so bad afterall

Today I had my 28 week appointment, which involved a glucose tolerance test. They gave me a bottle of sugary-goodness last appointment to drink for this appointment. Luckily they gave me fruit punch and not the orange, because I've heard the orange tastes like flat orange soda. Mine tasted like a very sweet Hawaiian Punch. You have to down it within five minutes, and I managed to get mine down in two. I felt an immediate sugar rush, which Shock Jr seemed to enjoy. I had heard many horror stories of this test, but I did not get the jitters or any incredible headaches everyone promised. Maybe this past week of Easter candy and sweets got me prepared. I have to wait for a call back for the blood test results, but Dr. Zaita seemed to think I don't have anything to worry about. The rest of the exam is the usual stuff: pee in a cup, weigh-in, blood pressure, fundal height measurement and listening to the heart beat. Everything looked great and we heard a nice strong heart beat as usual. My waiting time between appointments are getting shorter; three weeks to my next visit, then every two weeks from then on. Holy cow...time is flying!
