I went in for my first glucose test without a care in the world. I did not have it with William and did not have any concerns. So on Friday as I was napping on my lunch break my phone rings and its the doctor's office. She kindly said my test was a bit high and I need to come in for a second test that would last 3 hours. I was in such shock I did not even ask what my numbers were.
I scheduled the day off the following Monday and went in for my test. I asked about my first test and the lab tech said it came back at 171 and should have been under 130. Well that caused some concern. I had to stay for the entire time because the lady that ran the blood work results was going to be late. By the time I left I was starving! I went straight to Wendy's for the # 1 and thank goodness I did because the next day I was diagnosed with gestational diabetes and put on a strict diet.
The highest level came back at 187. I immediately started the diet and basically count carbs everyday. Just like with any diet I have ever done give me a a week or so and I have it memorized. I know exactly what I can eat and eat the same foods all of the time. I honestly can say I feel better physically since watching my carbs. I am not near as drained in the evenings or cranky. I go Monday to have my levels checked and see my doctor. Hoping for a good report.
