Today I got the test results of the glucose test back - all clear. Yay! I wasn't too concerned, though, as I didn't really have any of the other symptoms of gestational diabetes (i.e. high blood pressure, constant thirst, seeing spots). I also had to have the Rhogam shot in my BUTT! OWIE! Did I mention that I hate needles? It is sorta scary knowing more about the shot. I have a little card that they gave me that I have to carry with me in the event of an emergency (like really bad car accident) that shows the date of my Rhogam injection, and instructions related to my pregnancy. I should be ok, though. I have a really short drive to work, where I don't get on any highway or freeway, and the only planned trip out of town that I have left is up to Dallas (about a 4 hour drive) for Christmas.
Now that's done and over with, I have my regular 4 week checkup next Thursday with my OB/GYN. After that appointment, I'll start going every two weeks instead of four. Rather exciting!
My worst complaint right now is the acid reflux. I can't even think about salsa, and even the mildest of marinara sauces can set me off. Ugh. I pretty much take one to two Pepcid tablets every day, and usually a handful of Tums as well. And I've got an acne explosion. But really, when I look at some of the more severe problems and/or symptoms that I've seen some of my girlfriends go through, I know I really do have it pretty easy.
My last concern, really, is my heart. I just hope it stays clear all the way through delivery. I've only had a few minor episodes lately - not enough to put me back on medication, so I'm hoping we're all good with that.
