of weewee and injections...

i went to HP clinic today for my urinalysis and CBC for my pregnancy. urinalysis to check if i have UTI, and CBC for i don't know - maybe to determine your sugar level, i'm not really sure.

these are some of the things i don't like about being pregnant, all the medical tests you're required to have. but for the sake and love for your baby, you have to do it.

i don't like getting a urinalysis because i can't seem to aim my pee perfectly at the little plastic cup the clinic provided which they require to have it filled up halfway. well, i don't find it grossy but i just don't like the feeling of pee all over your hands. maybe, this would be easier for the boys.

cbc and anything that requires needles just suck big time! i really hate needles. i know it's just like some ant bites but still the thought of being pricked by a needle, and blood being sucked is just too much for me! see, i'm already scared with the little needles how much more the needles in the operating room!!!

hmmm... on my first prenatal visit here, i had to have these blood work! they took 7 (imagine 7!!) vials of blood to test my medical condition, etc. CBC is nothing! i can almost faint looking at how much blood they got from me.

as to the urinalysis, i found a technique already hehehe! pee from the other side of the bowl and squat (on air) while taking a leak. or better yet take everything off to avoid the mess!!!
