Gestational Diabetes Test

I am writing this blog from the waiting room at the hospital lab because I have four hours to kill. At our 27 week appointment my wife had her glucose test done and the number came in a little high. We arrived at the hospital at 9:30 this morning and the wife had her blood drawn after fasting since midnight. We had 45 mins that we could leave and then when we came back we would have to stay for four hours. We hurried home and grabbed the laptop, some movies, and some magazines and then headed back to the hospital. At 10:40 the wife drank the sugar drink given to her by the lab tech so they know exactly how much sugars are in her body. Right now it is almost 11:40 and she will have her blood drawn, and then it will be drawn again at 12:40 and 1:40. For those of you who have been reading this blog since the beginning, you know that the wife HATES having her blood drawn. So this is basically the worst day of her life. I have to admit though, she is being a real trooper and is becoming a pro at having her blood drawn. As for me, I am just tagging along for morale support and I am just happy that the hospital has wireless internet. Only a few more hours to go!!!
