My OB appointment today

Hubby and I arrived on time at the OB office. I was lucky today coz the assistant who weighed me and prepared my papers today was my friend, a bisaya Filipina also. Then one of the practitioners came to us and joined our little chit chat. Why she joined? Coz she's also a bisaya Filipina and my friend as well. haha That's one thing I like with my OB coz he's nice and has 2 Filipina workers whom I can call whenever I have a question. ^_-

Anyways, my friend gave me the orange drink for the glucose test and a small cup for the urine test. After an hour another employee drew my blood for the glucose test. The practitioner told me that if the result of the glucose test is abnormal then they will call me and I'll do the test again... which means I have to fast from 12 midnight and drink the orange drink then they're going to draw blood after an hour but this time they'll do it 3 times (once every hour). The practitioner thinks that I don't have gestational diabetes and she told me that I shouldn't worry about gaining weight after hubby told her that I felt weak yesterday in preparation for today's test. haha I had a good laugh listening to hubby and the practitioner talking about the way I eat and they both agreed about the dessert. She said that I can eat dessert in moderation but not 3 times a day, maybe once or twice is okay for me coz my weight is just right for my height. She was happy telling me and hubby that the baby is growing okay and was glad seeing my record that I gained 5 lbs in just 3 weeks which I thought is too much. We listen the baby's heartbeat and it's 153. Then I asked about wearing high heels if it's true that pregnant women shouldn't wear it coz a friend of mine told me once that my tummy is so low because of wearing heels which makes the baby descend. The practitioner said that it's not true. She said that the only reason to avoid wearing high heels is if it's pushing me forward coz I might fall. And she added that I'll be fine wearing heels like 1 - 2 inches or as long as the balance is okay. Well, I just like to wear my boots with heels in the evening when I go out coz its cold and I want to cover some part of my gastrocnemius. ^_^
