FAIL that's what they said

So I went to the Dr today for my 3 hour glucose test. I went I'n and it was an 85. They have me the orange drink with more sugar in it. Then I went back and sat in the chair for an hour. They took the blood again and it was supposed to be 190 or below it was 197 so I failed by 7 points. I just started to cry. She said I would have to take my blood one more time to see if I could pass that one well that was a big fat fail too. I never had it with Hudson I don't understand why I have it with this pregnancy. It makes me sad. I was watching what I was eating and everything I've only gained 10lbs so far. Then I had to wait on the nutrition nurse to come and meet with me. She gave me a list of what to eat and what not to eat. I only have to be monitored when ever I go back to the Dr so at least I don't have to take meds or test at home she said it's ok and it happens and I will be fine after I have Holden. I will be going to the dr every two weeks now and the good thing is we get to have the 4 D Ultrasound with Holden tomorrow I can't wait to compare Holden's and Hudson's pictures together. I just hope I can keep this diet under control I'm really nervous. Any suggestions.

  1. Hang in there. It really isn't a huge deal. I think the actual 3 hour test itself is the worse part. I got to do that twice w/ each pregnancy. And failed with my last. Of course I was so borderline like you that when they finally decided to dx me w/ GD I went and got all the stuff and 10 days later delivered Micah! GRRRRRR! What a waste of money. However, I didn't find it that hard to follow their "rules." I know the frustration b/c I am a Registered Dietitian and definitely eat take comfort in the fact that it is your crazy hormones doing this not your eating. Good luck on your 4d that is so cool. I never did that. ;(

  2. Thank you so much that makes me fill alittle better I guess it could always be worse the sheets they give you are crazy and scary the diet is too. I just hope everything will work out :)
