Gimme a high-five!
Little Binny measures 12w 5d, 6.28cm.
Did my MGTT (Modified Glucose Tolerance Test) at Hospital Selayang yesterday.
Started an hour late due to a broken lab printer.
Poor nurse had to go sourcing around for a spare one while those waiting were staring at her, hungrily ... yes, there were several hungry, expecting women who have not eaten since 10 pm, night before....
First blood was taken at 9.00 am. Then I was given this Super Sweet, Super Yucky, plain Sugar Water to drink. One mug. I finished mine in record-breaking 5 minutes, some ladies were still struggling!
Off I go and wait for 2 hours before the second blood test.
2 hours ... of waiting, tummy filled with modified glucose. No wonder some women puke.
I lay down horizontally on the waiting chairs and took little naps. It is quite a struggle because no food / drink is allowed until, after the second blood test.
Not so hungry. Blood is probably infused with so much sugar that I felt sleepy.
Consider this as sugar-overload.
Whole thing ended at about 11.15... and off we go for a private NT scan. :)
