Good to know...

This weekend Sam's provided some free health screenings. They offered cholesterol, blood pressure, glucose, BMI and something else.

Being pregnant, the BMI and other thing were off limits. But I had my blood pressure, glucose and cholesterol checked. Not such a good idea.

My cholesterol was through the roof and I was so worried! The technician told me it was really high and to talk to my doctor. I have a family history of high cholesterol, so my worrywheel kicked into high gear. After a nice weekend of worry, I read that you shouldn't test your cholesterol when pregnant or nursing.

My doctor confirmed that tidbit of news today.

Just thought I would share -- don't get your cholesterol screened while pregnant!
