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!

I had a screening at the hospital today so was up at St. Luke’s Roosevelt near Columbus Circle and as these things go your appointment time kind of means nothing or you should add an hour to the time they give you. So, as predicted I was in the waiting room for a very looooooong time! With super pregnant people left right and center! And babies. And pregnant women. And babies!
So, as everyone around me kept being called it crossed my mind that I should maybe try to record a sneaky video upload somehow. Every time I was about to turn on my ipod someone else came in or the nurse came in to call a name out. It was just soooooo busy! And this idea didn’t cross my mind until about an hour had passed already and I had won solitaire on my phone twice! So I was afraid of going somewhere to sneak a video in case they called my name.
My adrenalin was pumping but…..just couldn’t! Boo! I felt like I shouldn’t. I needed a Jackass TV crew to do something for me or something!
Good thing is I have a few more appointments to go up there so maybe I will have to dare myself to do something! 🙂
I should have, now that I think about it, recorded the crazy “mis-behaving” of the thing inside me I was watching on the screen above during my ultrasound screening! The baby would not stay still for them to take measurements!!
Surreal watching it move around like that!!!!!!!
