…the new place. If you have no idea what I’m talking about, read my post about switching doctors mid-pregnancy. ;-)
It. Was. Awesome. Well, they made a great first impression, anyway. They got me in and out of there in ONE hour and I heard the baby’s heartbeat, was measured, and had my blood drawn for that gestational diabetes test. All in that one hour! Seriously, at my last appointment at the LAST clinic, I waited for 2 1/2 hours with my 2-year-old in tow to see someone, anyone, just to get a checkup. So am I happy with my new clinic so far? Definitely yes.
The gestational diabetes test? That consisted of me drinking a bottle of sugar soda with a slight taste of lemon-lime to it. Yuck. I felt kind of sick after, too, but I think that’s because it was 8:15 AM and I drank it in less than 2 minutes. I don’t normally down overly sweet sodas first thing. Probably good.
Oh cool, I just found out I can go online and look at my test results and appointments and everything with this new place. Awwwwwwesome! I already can see that I don’t have gestational diabetes. I didn’t think I did, but they did tell me I shouldn’t eat too much sugar because I can still develop it later on. That’s a tough thing to ask of me, but I’ll try! ;-)
Isaac’s heartbeat was 130 bpm this time. I really don’t know what it’s been the last few times because nobody told me and I didn’t think to ask at the time. They always said he is normal and healthy, though. I thought 130 was kind of low, but that might be the worrying mommy in me. The NP didn’t seem concerned at all, though.
I had just downed that sugar drink before the Doppler so he was probably in a slight sugar coma, lol.
