I passed my glucose test the 2nd time around...whew!!!

Hello everyone,

I would first of all like to thank all of you who read this blog for your kinds words and encouragement during a time when I wasn't at my best. I had so many issues going on with me when I failed my glucose test and was just feeling horrible. So, thanks to everyone for helping to lift my spirit.

I went back for the agonizing 4 hour glucose test and passed it with flying colors. I am still anemic and taking the iron pills but that's ok because it's helping and I am feeling stronger and less tired lately.

As far as the deep vein thrombosis I was referred to a vein specialist and he ensured me that there was no deep vein thrombosis and that my horrible looking veins and the pains in my leg were superficial which is ugly and painful, but does not really have any health risks. Whoo Hoo!!!

I am still very nauseous and throwing up every night but some women just go through that apparently. I am now on my third anti nausea/vomiting medicine so hopefully this will work. If not the OB is recommending some sort or band/bracelet for me to wear which would submit some kind of electromagnetic pulse or something (I must admit he lost me on that one).

The first medicine they put me on was Reglan and that left me in worse shape than I was in the first place. I was up all night in the bathroom. Then we tried Zofran which dissolves in your mouth and that would work for 15 minutes and then I would feel nauseous again. I am now on Phenergan and this is my first day so we'll see how that goes.

Wish me luck and TTFN!
