The glucose test was uneventful, and aside from being surprisingly tired later that night, it was a snap. So far, no news, which I am hoping means that everything is fine. The orange stuff was actually somewhat tasty, and reminded me of that orange drink I used to get in a tiny carton in grade school. I did get a little worried when my friend said she was instructed not to eat anything all day beforehand, if she wanted to pass. (Of course, worrywart Susan then checked the direction sheet she was given, to confirm that she was told it was okay to eat.) Something tells me that Chipotle isn't the meal to eat just before this specific test, but I suppose time will tell. The rest of the appointment was easy as usual, my belly is growing, of course. My doctor is happy with my weight gain and says that everything looks great so far, which is always nice to hear. Apparently the B-H contractions are nothing to worry about unless they happen more frequently than 4 per hour. Mine aren't even close to that, so I'm going to stop obsessing. Maybe.
My biology class is a little more than half over, and I've learned a few things: dissecting a cow heart isn't the exciting experience that dissecting a frog was in tenth grade. It's kind of like preparing steak. And, I am not as interested in, nor am I as good at science as I once thought. When I started this class, I was excited to learn new things (I loved my college Astronomy class, and bio in high school...) and figured I was sure to keep my 4.0 GPA (I owned a microscope that I used for fun for several of my teen years!). Now I'm kind of happy for it to be ending, so I can read what I choose and not spend my Sundays retyping information from a textbook. I am also right on the cusp of losing my A, which is seriously frustrating because -- HELLO -- I'm a relatively smart girl who has gotten nothing but As for YEARS. Our program has a stricter grading scale than normal, and there are forty possible points weekly, which means I can miss 2.8 points before I lose my A. No pressure.
Okay, venting complete. For now.
Tonight we have dessert with the fam for G-Ma's birthday, which I'm looking forward to. It's at Malley's, which means ICE CREAM! (Yey!) Other than that, our weekend looks pretty breezy and we should be able to fit in a movie. (Hint, hint. Karen. Ahem.)
