Yesterday was my 3 hour gestational diabetes test, which included fasting as well as 4 blood draws all an hour apart. Sounds like fun, right?

As many of you know, needles and I do not get along, I tend to faint. I was terrified for my appointment yesterday, and I would like to announce that although I went through the motions of passing out I DID NOT FAINT ONE TIME!!!! This is a HUGE deal for me! Derek was a trooper and a great supporter with each draw yesterday. I know I had a lot of friends and family praying for me, thank you! The ladies at the lab were very nice and understanding and even agreed to drawing my blood with me laying down on the floor since there wasn't a reclineable chair or table for me to lay down on. My arms are pretty sore and bruised today, and yesterday I was exhausted, but I survived.


  1. Yippeee! I'm so relieved it wasn't as awful as you thought. Praying the results come back fine!

  2. I called to get my results, and apparently there is only 1 nurse working today and they're a little "behind" in their calls...sigh
