big changes

Big stuff happening. I can't talk about it yet until all the papers are signed but very big stuff happening. This will change our lives forever (hopefully for the better).

In other news, 11 weeks today!!! omg 11 weeks.

I have been well except I pulled a muscle in my back yesterday and struggled to do anything, sitting or standing, everything hurt. Eventually I went to bed and had the electric blanket on and the heat really helped. I feel much better today.

On Wednesday I went and did my 10 week blood tests and a glucose tolerance test. I have done this once before but not when pregnant. To do the test you have to fast for 12 hours, then you go into the clinic and they do a blood test, then you drink this very sweet glucose drink (rather like green cordial, only just a touch watered down and fizzy) and then you have to wait an hour, then do another blood test, then wait another hour and do yet another blood test.

I read 1/3 of the Shapelle Corby book while I was waiting. The glucose drink made me so nauseous that I really struggled to keep it down but I managed because the nurse threatened me by saying that if I throw up, she would have to cancel the test and I would have to come back another day and do it again.

Tomorrow I am going to have my right hand ultrasounded (is that a word?), as I have had some swelling in the fingers, and my doc wants to check out what it is.

I hope everyone is well. I hope to get around to reading and commenting on blogs this weekend. Very far behind.

Take care all

p.s. Thank you so much for your lovely comments on Jayden's post. I appreciate it more than I could ever say. Thank you.

11 weeks! That's so exciting! This first trimester is almost over for you...

I had to do a 5 hour glucose tolerance test once. My doc was testing if I was hypoglycemic. That was the worst day of my life, I think. I was so sick by the time I got out of there! I know I'll have to do it again soon, but at least it won't be for 5 hours!

So when do you get the results back from the ultrasound and the blood test? I hope all is good.

I hope you back is a lot better today too. You poor thing.

11 weeks is good! Not long before I can cast something on for buggy butt! YAY...

I am being a good little woman and have almost finished Valentine Sock number 1..Just one to go and only 3 days (and today) to get it done in! YOINKS.
