Week 26 - I'm doing great... well, except for this and that
Wednesday, February 27, 2013
Last week (all week) I had kidney stones. The last time (only other time) I had one was after I lost 50-60 lbs (9 years ago, yikes!) and it was so big I had to have the sonic blasting surgery. It was cool, but I lived with the pain for 3 weeks while my doctor misdiagnosed me with a bladder infection (even though I was asking for an ultrasound to rule out a kidney stone!!!). This time, it was either a lot of little stones or one big one that broke up so I could pass it/them. The pain lasted a week, but now I feel fine, so I'm hoping it's behind me. Then I got the call today that I failed my gestational diabetes screen, so I have to go back tomorrow for the 3 hour test where I fast beforehand and get to have blood drawn every hour. yay! I'm nervous and hoping that the one tomorrow comes back that I'm fine. I've done a lot of reading up on gestational diabetes since I knew that I was at a higher risk with it being a twin pregnancy, but I never really thought it would happen to me because I didn't have it with my first. *sigh* I'm going to need spark more than ever after the twins are born because if I do have it, I will have a 60% increase in risk of getting type 2 diabetes later in life. Gotta keep exercising and eating right (and standing at work, can't WAIT until I can do that again)! I'm pretty scared about the results of tomorrow, but at least this isn't anything that the professionals I'm working with haven't already seen! :D Just a little over 2 months to go! Except for all that stuff above, I'm doing fine...
Have a great day!!
