Monday was my 25-26 week appointment, I had to drink that nasty orange crap and take a blood test. For starters that stuff was hard to get down, I kept gagging. Then when I go to get my blood drawn (which I hate doing) the nurse was not very pleasant. I told her I don't like to see the needles and asked her not to let me see them but she didn't seem to care I had to close my eyes cause I didn't trust her. Then after prying around in my right arm she pulled the needle out and starts yelling at me, saying things like 'Did you drink any water today?', 'why can't I draw any blood?', 'what was your blood pressure when you checked in?' The whole time I'm thinking, first of all I really hate this, second your the nurse here not ME, and third don't get sassy with me! So of course she had to poke me again in my left arm, I don't know why it bothers me so much it doesn't hurt it just makes me nauseous for some reason.
After torture time with the blood lady was done- this is what I found out of my appointment.
Weight gain- 13lbs, wow that is hard to grasp! If he only weighs around 2lbs right now where is the rest hiding? Is this why everyone at work told my not to look behind in the mirror?
Measured 27 inches, Which is a little big for how far I am, again a sign of the toddler I'm going to give birth to!
He's becoming a very active baby I can see/feel him move several times a day. He's definitely a wiggle worm but I love feeling him move around knowing he's safe. The rest of pregnancy is going great, I feel good, happy and I can sleep a little better now that I've learned some tricks.
