Flaring After The Ultrasound

October 27 I had the anatomy scan for our little one; very excited but ended up being quite painful. Everything looks great for the baby...we assume this one has a full face, lol! We have a pretty stubborn baby it looks like. No amount of poking, jiggling, or prodding would get this one to move their hand and arm from across their face. IF one arm moved down, the other one was immediately up to replace it. The tech tried for almost an hour to get a scan without the face being covered.

The tech wasn't rough or anything but that almost hour prodding my tummy did send me into a small flare the next day. My tummy felt brusied---combined that with going almost 12 hours without eating caused the flare which lasted until the weekend.

I wish there was better ways to test for gestational diabetes; no eating after midnight until the testing is done. I had planned on a small snack late in my night but my toddler and I passed out pretty early and by the time I woke up in the middle of the night, it was past midnight. No food for this momma until almost noon the next day :( My awesome husband did treat me to lunch out, I did breakfast for lunch--biscuits and sausage gravy, hasbrowns, scramble egg, and some fruit. I was STARVING!

Not eating for a long time combined with a lot of poking is never a good combination...but hey, at least my test came back good--no diabetes so that is a huge plus!
