I saw my OB yesterday. We talked about my back pain, and I told her I didn't feel ready to return to work. She was very understanding, and we agreed to extend my leave for another two weeks. The soonest I'll go back is March 8th. I feel a great sense of relief about that outcome.
We also talked about my glucose test. Turns out my number was 159, but the cutoff is 140. Therefore, I must take the three-hour test. Lucky me! I've scheduled that for Friday morning. So, no nutrition counseling for now. Hopefully, I'll pass the test on Friday and be done with it.
After seeing the OB, I went to the dentist. I usually go to the dentist three times a year, but I hadn't been since last July. My most recent appointment should have been in November or December (can't remember which), but I had to cancel and reschedule due to my migraines. Needless to say, my teeth and gums were/are in pretty bad shape after being somewhat neglected. The hygienist did her level best to clean up my dirty mouth. I think it was a lot of work for her, and I know that I bled a lot, but she didn't complain. I'll go back in June for another cleaning and probably some x-rays. Let's hope there are no cavities in my pearly whites. I've never had one before, and I don't want to start getting cavities now. I thought the recliner I sat in at the dentist's office was the most comfortable piece of furniture I've been on in a long time. Wish I could borrow one for a couple of months!
Today's appointment is a prenatal massage. I can hardly wait.
