Updated main post - Chugging the Glucola! A bit pissed with Doc's office
 
My Dr.'s office called me at 2.30 PM to tell me they have to reschedule my appt tomorrow :mellow:. I had the glucose test tomorrow as well. Well long story short, they finally fit me in today at 4.15!! I have work to do here that they will be sending me later today. I had to talk my boss into letting me work from home and apologized for the short notice Doctor appt. And now I am chugging the glucola. Thank God I hadn't eaten anything or snacked after lunch and I had the glucola here at work. I am a bit miffed as this is the second time they are doing this to me. And both times its been the NP who was not available. I am glad they actually got me in my with OB today...Any how wish me luck for the glucose test !

Update:
The appointment went okay I guess. Baby's heartbeat was in the 140s. My bp was 100s/65 and I had gained 3 lbs since last month's appt. I requested the OB to palpate and check baby's position and she said she'd try but she wouldn't be able to say 100% plus the baby could still very well move. She found that the baby was laying diagonally with head towards my lower right and bottom on my upper left. My guess was kinda correct.

They drew blood and also gave me the TDAP shot which I was a bit miffed about since I didn't have time to process it in my head.

Overall it was a good appt. I hope I pass the glucose screening. I did not feel jittery or nauseated or anything...not sure if that's a good or bad sign.

Good luck! And sorry they keep rescheduling..I hate when the patients revolve around the doctors schedules when it should be the other way around!

What is that excuse - I'm going to have an emergency tomorrow? I understand you've got stuff randomly popping up in an OB practice, but that's why you've got redundant people diring office hours. Grrr, pet peeve. Glad you got it done - good luck!

Mine has rescheduled three times and its messed up my GD test as well. I now have a lab paper in my purse so I can walk in on my own time and have it done. I'm confused because originally she said no eating after midnight and now she says I can eat because the test compensates for food???

Ugh three times?? That's ridiculous! For me they said I should not eat from 2 hrs before starting to drink it. Supposed to finish drinking it in 10 mins. Supposed to start drinking it 40 mins before the appt and then when I show up for the appt, I was supposed to tell them the time I finished drinking it. I guess they can draw blood an hr after I finish, but the extra 20 mins would give them time in case the nurse was behind or something.

That sucks that they give you the run around like that. I hope it stops for you soon. Good luck with the results and keep us posted!
