100 Days!

25 weeks and 5 days = 100 days to go!  I technically could have done this post about 3 weeks ago, because since we are planning on delivering Miss Cameron at 37 weeks on September 15th, so I really only have 79 days left, but I thought I would stick with the official one.  :)

So, how did I celebrate making it to this point where the countdown is on the last day of being a 3-digit number and tonight will roll over to being just a 2 digit number?  I went and had my glucose test done!  What a way to celebrate huh? 

I knew I needed to get it done, as I've had the lab order since last week.  I figured I might as well bite the bullet and do it, so in hopes of being able to have my results by the time I go to my weekly appointment tomorrow, I got up and did it this morning.

I got to Norman Regional Healthplex this morning at 6:27 and was given a buzzer at registration so they could call me back, because they didn't open for another 3 minutes.  They called me back, verified my information, put a bracelet on me and I waited.  I got called back again shortly after and was taken back to a room and given the fizz-less orange drink.  She told me I had 5 minutes to drink it...I was thirsty and I didn't have time to mess around, so it was gone in less than a minute...and it really wasn't that bad.  I told Adam it tasted like a stronger version of the Hi-C Orange at McDonalds that had been mixed right.  He understood that analogy...lol

About 30 minutes after drinking that stuff, Cameron went NUTS!  She was all over the place!  I laughed to myself and savored every minute of it.  I was trying to read a book on my Nook, but she kept my attention for the most part.

An hour later, they took me back and nurse #1 tried to get the blood she needed...Epic Fail.  My arm still hurts from that one.  Nuse #2 tried to get the blood she needed from the other arm...after a little bit of digging, she got what she needed...that arm still hurts too.  I am a little bruised from them, but the test is done...Now I just pray that I don't have to go do the 3 hour one!  :)

So, with 100 days left and 140 under my belt, I have made it over the "hump", I get to write this post about being at 100 days left to go, and I got to take my glucose test.  All things I didn't get to do with Bailey.

And the even better part...M still feels good about it.  (To understand what this means, see this post.)  She told me she just has that feeling that Cameron is strong and everything is still going to be fine.
