Yet another doctor update

I went in yesterday for the non-stress test. The baby's heartbeat is fine, but a little fast. Nothing to be concerned about, or so I'm told. My heart rate is a little fast too - but a couple of the midwives have commented on that. My blood pressure is fine. I talked to the midwife about my ankles being swollen and the concensus is that as long as my hands and face aren't swollen, I'm good. Just keep putting them up and drink more fluids.
As far as the diabetes, they're upping my meds in the morning. I have to take 2 pills now, 1/2 hour before breakfast, and 1 pill 1/2 hour before dinner. I think I'm still supposed to be fasting 8 hours too *sigh* I've been taking it with food because, well, that's what the label says.
Today we go back into the doctor, to talk to the diabetic clinic and to do a blood draw. They were going to do it yesterday, but I wouldn't have been able to handle it well. I'd gone a couple hours without food, and I was starting to get light-headed. So, back again at 2 pm. Hopefully, this won't take so long
Tonight, I also have that outergrove class starting - I'm looking forward to it! :)
