Wow, I’m not sure I’ve ever snoozed in a parking lot before but that is certainly what just happened.  I arrived 15 minutes before my regular check-up so I could drink the delightful orange stuff to get the Glucose Tolerance Test process started.    It wasn’t all that bad, actually.  Then I went to my appointment (only 4 lb weight gain..hooray!!) where I learned that all of Baboo’s measurements, etc, are squarely within the plus/minus error column of where I’m supposed to be, but to Seth’s great pleasure, are more on the plus side of those.   So maybe he’ll get his wish and have this kid over Christmas vacation from school like he really wants.

I then got treated to a flu shot.  I’ve never done the flu shot thing before and have just counted myself lucky never to have gotten sick.  The shot itself wasn’t that big a deal but it made me feel pretty out of it.  So I spent about 10 minutes sitting there with my head between my hands trying not to freak out about the fact that I still had to go back to the lab and have 3 vials of blood drawn plus my general anxieties about gestational diabetes in the first place! 

Thankfully, the blood-drawing went fine and I escaped to my car where I decided I was really just exhausted.  I reclined the passenger seat and closed my eyes for a bit….and then woke up to find it was way later than when I’d left the office.   Wonder how many people peered in at me and thought crazy things!


  1. If your experience is anything like mine, the random sleeping will only get worse after the baby arrives. I can’t tell you how many little catnaps I’ve taken in the car parked in the driveway, the grocery store parking lot, you name it! Catch those z’s while you can!

  2. I used to sneak out to the parking garage on my lunch break and sleep….daily. Sleep all you can….while you can!!!
