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.

typically the 1 hour test is done at 28 weeks. I had to get it done now due to my BMI being over 35%. I will have to do another one at 28 weeks.

I have been dizzy and wanting to pass out since getting them drawn. I have eaten 2 full onion bagels with cream cheese right after I got home and nothing has helped me yet.

Vampires! It seems like you couldn't possibly have any blood left after that doesn't it?

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.
