Blood test this morning. I fasted because no one told me not to; I probably didn't need to, but I'd rather hold off on eating than get to the lab and find out I need to come back tomorrow.
This is, in my mind, the last "hurtle" toward being joyous about the pregnancy. Isn't it great what science has wrought? But, y'know, I'd rather know now if I'm carrying a kid that's going to be stillborn than find out three months down the road. Also, the Maternit21 test is boss, eliminates the need to use amnio or cvs to eliminate the possibility of chromosomal anomalies, and I'm glad I am with a midwife who knows what it is and how to get me the test. Also glad I upped my insurance and FSA last year; it's eating a lot of these charges.
Now, onto food. Going to track a little more detail now since I intend to turn this over to the midwife, who is curious as to how a grainless pregnant woman eats.
