They took 9 vials of blood from me. Yes, 9 tubes. I couldn't believe it myself. I had my 1 hour glucose done. Funny enough they had ordered another pregnancy test. I couldn't believe that one. So I am now one step closer to my appt on Friday morning.
Yikes that's alot of tubes of blood!I remember getting really light headed when i had to have seven taken with my last pregnancy.I drank a bottle of orange juice afterward and it seemed to help.I'll be taking that with me this time,too!
Do you have History of GD?? is that why they did the 1 hour glucose already?
No, I don't have a history of GD. I have never tested positive with any of my pregnancies. But they wanted it for my weight. The last time they wanted it early I kept putting it off until I was 27 weeks. But I wasn't going to try that this time since they had told me if I don't get all of my labs done that was ordered they could reschedual my appt. I didn't want that so I just did the 1 hour.
