I had a doctor's visit yesterday afternoon. It was the dreaded glucose test. I had to drink my orange sugar bomb at work and then had to go to the doctor. I had only gained 1lb...( a total of 14.5lbs) Logan's heartbeat sounded wonderful. Garrett was excited to hear his brother's heartbeat again. The doctor said I was measuring perfectly. She guessed that Logan weighs about 2.5lbs right now.
After I saw the doctor, they drew my blood for the sugar test. It hurt! It felt like she shot me in the arm. That night my arm had a knot on it and is now the color of the rainbow..... blue, purple, green, etc. It is soooo sore. I don't know what happened but I've never had my arm hurt like this before.
Anyway, the doctor checked my hemoglobin and said my iron was low. She suggested that I start taking iron pills with my prenatal vitamins. :( I stopped at Wal-mart on my way home and picked up my iron. I also got to pick up 2 of 3 baby items that I ordered for Logan.
I ordered Logan a Fisher Price Rock n Play Sleeper. This looks great! I suggest it to all my pregnant friends and family. :) I also got covers for Logan's changing pad. I have one more item to pick-up.
Today at work, we started our state testing. Today my students had the ARMT Reading part of the testing. I was so proud of them. They all seemed to have done a fantastic job! I am really enjoying teaching 5th grade. I know my attitude was completely different earlier in the year... but these kids have really grown on me.
The weekend will be very busy. My cousin Lauren is having her baby shower on Saturday and my friend Brandi is having her shower Sunday. I can't wait to see Lauren and my family!
I hope everyone has a wonderful rest of the week!
