I didn't have an ultrasound this month. Now come to think of it, yesterday was the second appointment I have had where I didn't get an ultrasound! All my other appointments, I have gotten ultrasounds. I'm pretty spoiled. I have one scheduled for my next appointment though!
I have to do the glucose test at my next appointment. Not looking forward to getting my blood drawn at all!! Hopefully I won't have to lay there for an hour like I did the last time I got my blood drawn. That was an experience.
For those of you who don't know, I am HORRIBLE with shots!! And I usually pass out. It's all mental, I know! The last time I had my blood drawn, it went pretty well. I layed down, they took my blood, and I was good to go! Or so I thought...
As I got up to go give a urine sample, I totally blacked out in the bathroom! Thankfully the bathroom was right across the hall from my room so I felt my way back to my room to lay back down before I actually pass out. After 30 minutes, I thought I was good so I got up to leave and what do ya know, it happened again!!
Whenever I get my blood drawn, I always have to have a small snack and something to drink. It's usually a Dr. Pepper and crackers and the doctors office always provides it. Well, the doctor that I was seeing didn't have anything in their office like that! They didn't even have water!!! Another reason I am glad I switched doctors.
Anyways, hopefully this next time will be better!! And I will take a caffeine free drink and a snack just in case!!
