Glucose Testing 1, 2,

Dress: T.J. Maxx, Sweater: Target, Belt: H&M, Shoes: Target.

First off can I just say we have Internet!! Halleluiah!! It's been down for a couple days and it's been really hard without it (first world problems big time) before I sound like a big cry baby please note that on the day online classes start my internet goes down.... oh the irony! Now on to the story that goes with the title of this post.

Yesterday was Glucose testing day. In pregnancy land that means it's time to check if you have diabetes.  Unfortunetaly before they take your blood for the test you have to drink this highly sugared drink in under 5 minutes. Think Orange flavored water doused in an obnoxious amount of sugar then to make it worse you then can't eat a thing until they draw your blood.

So imagine me 7:30 a.m. nothing in my system drinking this drink and heading out for the doctors. I'm waiting for them to come draw my blood when I get extremely dizzy and sweaty, having experienced this before I know what's going to happen next. Throwing up! But I'm too dizzy to walk myself to the bathroom so David has to escort me. Some point between the waiting room and the bathroom door I pass out hitting my chin on the bathroom door!! The next thing I remember two nurses and David are laying me down on a hospital bed.

Can we say embarassing! I wish I could have seen it all play out. A pregnant lady passing out bashing her face into the wall, falling into her husbands arms and nurses carrying her around. I mean it makes me giggle right now just thinking about it.  I was totally fine after they laid me down and drew my blood, and I never did throw up! 


  1. Haha I remember that glucose testing all too well. That drink really is gross! I'm glad you are ok though! Your poor husband was probably so worried!

  2. You're fine now and that's what matters.I still have this awful taste in my mouth when I think of the diabetes test.Nice dress!

  3. Oh no...I admit I would be so freaked out if I saw it happened, but now that you can giggle about it...it will be a never old story to tell! :)


  4. I'm a big fan of stripes and your maxi is totally a hit to me! And also how you mix with other items totally rock the whole outfit :)

  5. How do you get your hair like that? Do you use a regular iron or a straightener?
