I was a little nervous about the multiple vials of blood I had to give initially. I am a pretty nervous about the whole pushing the baby out of my body in 13ish weeks (what?!). But I am downright terrified of my glucose test Wednesday.
First, I have to go in and chug gross, sugary juice at 11 a.m. Then I have my regular appointment to hear the heartbeat, talk about odd things like "do you allow squatting?" I have to do all this without passing out or throwing up from the intense sugar rush. Considering I had to lie on the floor of my coworker's office for an hour this morning after eating OATMEAL, I have lost all confidence in my ever-shrinking stomach. Luckily the hubs is accompanying me to hold the barf bag.
Then I have to go back to the lab at exactly one hour and get my finger pricked. This is the part that makes me want to pee my pants.
Last time I had to get my finger pricked for a cholesterol test, I almost fainted. At work. Give me a long needle in those visible arm veins any day over knowing that at any second I will get stabbed in my poor finger pads.
Here I am facing the most pain I've ever faced in just a few months, and I am mostly worried about my fingers. Super lame, I know. And if I fail, which many people do, it's the three-hour test with blood drawn every half hour. Oh my soul.
Any tips from ladies that have taken this test?
