no news is good news
This what I was told when I left the Dr's office last week. Unfortunately, they called. Definitely not something to freak out about, but concerning. I has some blood work and a urine analysis done last week. My blood work came back okay, but my urine showed that I am dehydrated and that my "sugar is spilling." More or less that I have glucose in my urine which is not supposed to be there. So instead of having a glucose test at 28 wks, I now get to have it at 20 wks, 24wks, and 28wks. AREN'T I LUCKY!!! The weirdest thing is once again it so out of character for my body type. I am 5 ft, 108 lbs, normally people of my body stature don't have these problems, but then again they don't have PCOS either, and I have that. As far as the dehydration, I need to get more liquids, if I can't, I need to go in for IV Fluid, and needless to say I need to stay healthy, if I get sick I need to go in right away. The best part of this is my husband is home with the puking flu today! I am a hypochondriac, I hate germs, especially ones that make me puke. So, needless to say I am freaking out. I went to Tar.get tonight and bought lots of germ killer. I came home from work sanitized my house, especially my bedroom. Washed my sheets in bleach, and now have barricaded myself in our bedroom. I have quarantined my husband to the spare bedroom, with instructions to strip the bed and bleach the sheets tomorrow. I feel terrible that I can't help him, but I think he is more worried about me getting sick than anything else. He is actually feeling better tonight. Thank god I had to work today, or I would have gone crazy. I am praying to god I don't get sick, I can't afford it. I don't want to end up in the hospital or even in the emergency room getting fluids. I have done that before and it sucks!! So I am working on the fluids. I need to drink as much water, juice, and broth-doesn't that sound good?!
