The heat index today was 105!!
Today and tomorrow there’s been a heat warning issued! Great! That’s all I need!!
It was one of those “wipe the sweat off your upper lip” days!
I had to speed walk to catch the subway this morning to make it to my glucose screening test I had that was early, and boy was I wiping the sweat away after that mad dash! I tried to put on the loosest clothing but had no time this morning so ended up wearing some preggo clothes that were given to me from a friend, but they are huge – so not only do I look like a giant sack of potatoes BUT was one of those sweato’s on the subway, that you watch sweat drip down, and don’t necessarily want to be too close to them in the rush hour squeeze 😦
Don’t you just love it when you feel sweat drip down your back! Or better yet, gather in between your boobs!!
Then of course the flip side to that is then you freeze when you go anywhere as the A/C is on – and in the USA it is pounding in ever store/place you go, like the waiting room at Quest Diagnostics I had to wait 3 hours in to complete my test!! Hot then COLD!!
It was for my glucose testing this morning, that is a routine 26 weeks pregnancy test, where I had to be fasting the last two days with no simple carbs or processed sugar, and then nothing after midnight last night, and they take blood three times, once an hour. After the first blood draw they give you a bright orange drink to down as fast as you can – it was disgusting! But had to be done! The biggest problem is fighting the nausea and wooziness as you can’t eat or drink water from midnight, and I get nauseous anyway with an empty stomach let alone now even more so while pregnant, so by the third hour I was in the corner trying to get through. Ugh. Not fun. They tell you to pack a snack to eat after you’re done with this test so you know this must happen a lot.
The waiting room did feel like I was in a play though with the noise of the door creaking open as new people came in, the sign-in routine, and the characters – there were many! I captured a bit on my video upload – no words necessary! Just watching is intriguing and tells a story, or several stories.
People are so fascinating to watch in a waiting room!
