So I had my appointment yesterday. Baby sounds great, only gained one more pound...
It was DH's birthday so we were going to sneak in a restaurant meal before going to the MW so I didn't actually eat anything -- however, I did have
2 cups of coffee w/sugar
2 malta's (it's a malted drink full of sugar/carbs)
an entire COKE from Wendy's (cause was thirsty on the way and thought F-it)
and my DH gave me this iced coffee thing that makes a frappuccino look like the healthiest meal on the planet.
Oh, and mom gave me a symphony bar and I ate that.
-- Of course, the night before I ate ice cream cake at 3am - bad me!
(Mind you, this was like alien day for me, I normally don't even drink soda or malta or that much coffee - I was trying to hold myself over so I could actually stuff my face at the restaurant)
So, my mom and I get in an argument before I am supposed to leave with DH and she decides to take off and not come back until 45 minutes before my appointment -- needless to say we pushed the meal till AFTER we went in.
So then I go to the bathroom for my pee - dipstick - and low and behold my horrid food intake showed up immediately with trace amounts of sugars.
So the MW totally FREAKS out so to relax her (since excess is excreted in pee!) not to totally freak and I'll just do some finger pricking at home for the next few days to make sure my sugar is normal -- she seemed totally fine with that.
So that night I didn't prick my finger but only cause it was DH's birthday and we stopped at Carrabba's and had a really high carb meal (lots of bread, cannelloni, pasta and so on) and of course a supreme chocolate ganache cake when we got home.
This morning, I had my usual cup of coffee and ate a bowl of rice check w/some sugar. About an hour later I pricked my finger and of course I get a big fat 158 -- so I wait to the second hour and my sugar is back to 79 - and now I checked again after dinner 80 so I know my sugar is fine but she is still totally freaking out LOL
So to make her feel better I am doing a random glucose screening at the lab tomorrow. I am just aggravated because she is a midwife and should know that blood sugar levels at one hour can vary and spike in everyone and that as long as your sugar goes down to a normal range and stays there you are not considered to have GD, especially NOT with levels of 79 and 80!.
I remember the doc telling me "if we test everyone after Halloween or Easter, we'd have to diagnose the entire population with diabetes") -- I had a severe excess of carbs and sugars, it's got to come out somewhere!
I think I'm just going to keep testing at home too and do a chart of the next two weeks and give it to her and see if that makes her freak less. UGH I am just aggravated over it because if she decides to misdiagnose me I will have to find another midwife and I don't feel like doing that! I like this one lol
Obviously I think it's important to keep checking sugar levels, I only have a machine because I am a freak and like to know where I am at on occasion so that if I do happen to ever develop diabetes I will know asap to address it and not get any permanent health problems from walking around with high sugar.
Also, baby is measuring normal too, so it's not like I have any other markers and she moves all fraken day.
I hate that I am so frustrated by this!
