Phebotomy

I love to find out the meanings of medical words ..

Phlebotomy is made up of Greek words… phlebo means “pertaining to a blood vessel” and tomia means “cutting of” ☺

Anyways, as you’ve probably guessed I was able to get my bloods done today. B picked me up from work, a mad rush and got there with only three people in front of me. Thankful we got there when we did, the waiting room was full by the time I went in. 

Three vials later and job was done, wasn’t in there 2 minutes! 

You know what the worst bit was?

Ripping the bloody plastic surgical tape off after!! My word! I had to get B to pull it off for me 😂

Our GP wants B to have some tests done too which he’s planning to do this week. 

So now the wait begins. Feel so nervous now, more worried now the tests have begun! Better get nagging for him to get on with them 😉 

Time to ask for help

We had both been talking recently that time was getting on, and there was still no bump or baby to be seen so decided to go see our GP.

We went Friday afternoon. We were so nervous, had no idea what to expect either. I think I was expecting the “just keep at it, things will happen in the end” with a tap on the head and shown the door. 

I was so wrong! Our GP was lovely, asked us both a load of questions about things that could prove to be problems and now I’m off to have a LOAD of blood tests done on Monday. 

It was good timing going Friday, blood tests need to be done around day 21 (I think it was 21 anyways) of your cycle so I only have the weekend to wait. Would have driven me mad if I had to wait a long time, would have wanted to get it over and done with. 

I’m normally a bit of a nightmare to get blood out of so I’m sure the phlebotonist will have fun with me! 😉

I’ll let you know x

Two Becoming Three

Sat in a town in West Wales, an engaged couple sat watching Top Gear … Blah blah blah. This isn’t a story … well, not fiction anyways … it’s my story of life, pregnancy, weddings and hopefully parenthood!! I can’t tell you about how we met, neither of us really know. We think we’ve known […]
