Gestational Diabetes

I forgot to post after my last appt. It was last Thursday and I had another u/s. I also had my 1 hour glucose tolerance test. Well, the u/s showed that my placenta had moved up and was looking great. Amount of fluid was good too. We got a cute picture of Amelia’s arm and her little fist all balled up.

My Glucose level came back too high. The cutoff is 140 and mine was at 160. So I had to go for the 3 hour test. YUCK! Apparently I’m also slightly anemic so I have to take an iron supplement from now on.

The 3 hour test was on Tuesday. Not bad but it just started getting boring. I was slightly sick but that was because I was so hungry from not eating. The glucose drink didn’t make me sick or anything. I haven’t heard back yet and the doc said if I did okay, then I wouldn’t hear anything till my next appt which is 2 weeks from today. I’m crossing my fingers that I pass.

Oh yeah. Today we got an unexpected gift in the mail. I haven’t opened it yet as I’m waiting for my husband to get home so we can open it together…but I know it’s something off my registry cause it’s from I am resisting temptation to go peek at my registry and see what’s been bought. I also have no idea who sent it. The message on the tag makes it a definite mystery.
