I failed my tests....

I failed the stupid glucose test. Now I have to do the 3-hour glucose test, the one where they make a pregnant woman fast for 12+ hours. PURE TORTURE PEOPLE! How can they do that to a pregnant person? I shouldn't complain because I know lots of you have done it and lived through it. I'll be fine. We'll get through this.

Then, the doctor's office calls me back and tells me my protein is too high in my urine. This means I get to start my nonstress tests earlier than we had anticipated and I get to do the 24-hour urine test AGAIN. It's so fun. And really, there is nothing embarrassing about walking around the hospital with a jug full of urine. That's a priceless moment. If the protein is still high in my urine next week, then I have to be admitted and pumped full of steroids in anticipation for an early delivery. I'm still keeping my fingers crossed that this all isn't real or that it will just magically disappear. A girl can dream right? Apparently I need to calm down. Breathe. Breathe. Everything is fine.

I'm sorry ash that sucks. Will they let you do the glucose test in the morning so you don't have to fast all day. I bet it would be easier to just eat dinner and then go to bed and wake up and do the test. Good luck with doing these next set of tests. I have to do my glucose test next week.

Oh wow Ash. Everything will be fine. Have faith. I can't imagine you being a nervous reck. You seem like the most calm (did I spell that right lol) person ever. Think positive. You are so strong. Good Luck. I like reading ur updates. I had to do non stress tests with both of my kids...NO FAIR that lots of prego people out there have great pregnancies and do have to go through HELL like that. I will expect that with my next too. I am already prepared...AHHH.

Ash,
I just "found" your blog again (I've been out of it!).

It sounds like you are dealing with a lot, but you sound positive and happy and I'm so, so, so happy for you. Your babies will be gorgeous and wonderful!

Good luck with the nasty pee test and the 3-hour ordeal. :)

Goodness Ash! Looks like you've had plenty going on lately. I'm sorry about your glucose test. I think I have mine in a couple weeks. If it makes you feel any better, you are the cutest prego woman ever! So tiny and cute! Seriously...
