Yes, another NST test. Yay me. This time it was a midwife running it. Pretty easy, actually.....was a little late. Wouldn't you know it? One lane on 45th closed, in the direction I'm heading, of course. Grrrr. And in the heat too...*sigh*
I wish they'd have my files ready when I get there. I mean, I don't see how it should be that difficult really. I know they work with a lot of people, but it would just seem easier all the way around. Today, I got to answer the same questions I do on every stress test...you know, my age, how far along I am, what meds I'm on, my due date, etc. *sigh* Then, there's always the question of my pulse. Everytime I've gone in, its noted that my pulse is fast...and they ask me if this is normal. I can only presume so since no one's made a big deal so far....*shrug* But, I'm not the damn doctor, aren't you supposed to tell me if its normal or not? Sheesh. Oh..and the baby is fine. Little punk is making it through this better than I am, I think :P
On a more positive note, I'd like to thank jeebietree for his gift, which arrived on my front doorstep just a little while ago! Its very nice! *pets the blankets and bear* ooohhhhhhh.......mine! *stashes them in her room* He'll never know...shhh! *grins* When we get Garrett's room cleared out and set up, those will go in there for sure. The softness is delicious.
Oh...and my blood sugars...are under control! Yay! There's been a few spikes, but nothing like before. I think I'm actually getting the hang of this. Speaking of which...its time to go submit to the steel vampire. *grumble*

Glad to hear all is well. Kinda funny, for all the education/training Docs have... you'd think they wouldn't ask such dumb ass q's. Oh well... can't hit em with a mallet, so just smile. Well, I guess ya could... but, just smile. lol
Yay, they got there ok. hehe I had a lot of fun working on the blankets, hope they come in handy. *HUGS*

Try this-
Try getting to the doctor's office at least 15 min. early. Then find a quiet place to sit and meditate, or just do deep breathing exercises. It'll slow your pulse right down. Helps with the blood pressure, too. My doctor has a huge fish tank in the waiting room and just contemplating those fish does wonders for my pulse and blood pressure. The nurse who took them last was a young thing and said my bp was better than hers! Give it a try next time.
