Just irritable

Got a call last week, failed my 1 hr glucose test, so had to go in today to do the 3 hr test. Of course had nothing to eat after Midnight, test was scheduled for 9am, so nothing to eat at all, except that stupid drink, from midnight till after noon. Between time allowed for blood draws and waiting to get back, I wasn't actually home until 12:30. Which is fine, but of course by then I was starving. I ate, but now am nauseaous and feel like I am going to puke, but also still hungry.

So, I am irritable and whiney just because of that. Then...I am TIRED. I have to get everyone in my house up at 6am. I have to take DD1 to school. She drives, but she's on a learners permit and has to have 50 supervised hours logged, so driving herself to and from school is a GREAT way to rack up all the hours. But it means me and the two little ones have to be up at 6 with DD1, because we all have to go because DH has to be out the door between 6:30 and 7am. Since DD1 just started school last Wednesday, this is a new schedule, we were waking up between 7 and 8 over the summer.

When I got home my sister, who was watching my girls, had cleaned my house. Which would be great if the cleaning hadn't come with the implication in her voice that I don't clean well enough. I am almost 30 weeks pregnant, with my 4th, my 3rd in 4 years, I have a teen, a nearly 4 yr old, a nearly 2 yr old and my DH works 10 hours a day, 5 days a week, plus he has a 1 hr commute each way. In addition to cooking from scratch for them most days, I am regularly driving my teen to work and back, to school activities like the freshman orientation that she manned a booth at (she's a junior) and so on. Not to mention that I can't keep my two little ones locked inside all day just so I can clean and the youngest can't be outside alone yet. And the bugs-ants, flies and spiders, which we have a problem with every summer anyway- are SO bad this year due to the heat and drought and I am battling them constantly. Not to mention that the cleaning my sister did in my house, she doesn't do regularly in her own home, despite the fact that she owns her own business and only works a half day, and her only son (her older one is a step son only there half the time) is in school full time now.
Whatever, I might just be reacting to that because I am irritable.

My 3 yr old is doing EVERYTHING she knows she isn't supposed to-hanging on the baby gate between the kitchen and the family room, building a mountain of blankets (which is fine) but then crawling under it to hide under the end table and kick her feet up to knock the table into the wall, playing with all sorts of random crap in the kitchen, pulling her little sister around by the arm, "washing" her hands in the bathroom to play with the bubbles etc etc.

I opened a new bank account on Friday, we are changing banks. I was told I could access the online banking at the new bank today, but turns out it's 48 hours, excluding Saturdays and Sundays, after it's opened. So I am in that limbo between the old bank where the direct deposits and the auto bill pays are and the new bank, where some money is because I needed some in there to open the account, but not much else is. Have to avoid using the debit card on the old because once the direct deposit is switched all the pending transactions have to have processed before I close it, but don't have a new debit card yet.

Oh, and, I am contracting once or twice an hour and have been for a while. I always have lots of contractions, call them BH contractions or whatever, but there's nothing that stops them and they aren't productive so they aren't a huge concern. They just hurt and are annoying and frustrating.

Oh, and, they told me my numbers on my 1 hr...the range is 50 to 140...my 1 hr number, having had NOTHING to eat before the 1 hr, was 179. They said at that number it was more likely that this 3 hr is going to come back high too. I don't have time or patience to have gestational diabetes on top of everything else.

I am still hungry. I have grilled cheese on the menu for lunch, but forgot to take the cheese out of the freezer.

Wow. That sucks! Deep breaths. I felt the same way after my 3 hour glucose. Hopefully everything goes good and you'll be feeling writer soon.

might give you some hope. I was 176 after my 1 hour (didn't eat prior either) but I passed my 3 hour no problem (minus ralphing it up at about 50 minutes into it)

Hope it all starts to calm down for you soon.

That does give me some hope, thanks! I was THIS CLOSE to both puking and passing out about 45 minutes into it this morning. I failed the 1 hr and passed the 3 hr when I was pg with my first. I don't remember what my numbers were 17 yrs ago though.

Overall, I am feeling a little bit better. Immediately after typing that, I had to go pay a bill, that I did have cash for but because I had to pay it in cash I had to get my 2 littles loaded up, drive them there, and then unload them and have them run around the waiting room while they processed the cash payment, instead of just calling and have them run my debit card. And I wasn't looking forward to that when I typed it. Then after doing that, I had to go to my oldest's school and pick her up from school. And I was still STARVING, and getting a headache as a result, so I swung through a drive through after going over 2 weeks without a drive thru meal and having messed up our budget to do so.

BUT, advantage to having a teenager at this stage of young children and pregnancy, since she was driving I could relax a bit (not a lot since I was instructing but at least able to sit comfortably) and then came home and laid down for about a 45 minute nap. And now am eating another bowl of cereal and getting dinner started. So feeling better, even if not 100%

Slightly different, but I had a 159 on my 1 hour with ods (though I had vending machine cookies while rushing from a graduate test to my glucose screening--stupid). Passed my 3 hour, just fine.

I hope you don't have to worry about GD, mama.

Re: Just irritable

I'm super irritable right now too, and I am less pregnant than you. I think it's the heat.

I seriously don't think your sister cleaning was a slam on your cleaning skills. She probably just thought she'd do it to be nice since you are 30 weeks pregnant with your 4th and exhausted.
