I've got The Sugar

That's what my grandma always called diabetes. I has it. Sad

Anyone else? Cristan, am I crazy, or do you have it too?

Yep, that's me.

Did you escape the 3 hr test?

I did! They told me that these days, anything over 200 is just assumed to be full on GD. I got a 211 this time. I guess last time I got a 204 (I asked) so I feel like I should have escaped it last time too. :pissed:

I have an appointment with a perinatologist that specializes in gestational diabetes on Friday at 8:30 am so I can talk about nutrition and get set up to monitor my blood sugar. Yay. LOL Are you already doing that? We should swap recipes and meal/snack ideas. Smile

I am already on insulin, I hope you can control it with diet again this time! We should totally share recipes.

EEEK! Sorry Alissa! I go in for my test today. So, maybe we'll be GD friends. Although, not to be mean - I'd rather stay out of this one LOL

Boo to GD, sorry you have to deal with that again. Glad you don't have to do the 3 hour test again though.

That stinks, but remember, you're just a few weeks away from the 3rd trimester! It'll be over before you know it.

LOL Jessica about not wanting to join me; I don't blame you! I don't want you to join me either.

Cristan - If you have any really good lunch ideas, let me know. That is the meal that stumps me. Sorry that you already have to be on insulin. Do you still have to test your blood when you are on insulin?
