Did the 2-hour phase two Gestational Diabetes test this morning. Ugh, cruel punishment. Please wish me luck, I will probably get the results tomorrow (Wednesday).
Dr told me one clinic was open at 7:30 and the other closer to my house at 8am. I am not a morning person and am ALWAYS starving in the morning, I had soooo been dreading this test due to the overnight fasting. I didn't go yesterday because I had to get back to work after a week away, but saw my Doctor in the afternoon for my monthly checkup. He expressed the urgency to go in today. He told me the 1 hour GD results showed 9.5 where 10 is automatic diagnosis of GD. Other than that it was a good appointment, my sugars yesterday were slightly high in US but fine with finger-prick, no protein. Doc said he is very happy with my weight gain. Baby was wriggling around during the doppler, Doc finally got heartbeat measured at 142bpm
Last night, in hopes of preparing for 10 hours fasting and no breakfast I actually ate almonds and peanut butter at 9:30pm, lol. I don't really think that it helped.
Now I am going to indulge myself here and totally whine about it just to vent :).
So I chose to rush myself over to the 8am clinic today only to find the Doc was mistaken & they don't actually open until 8:30. Rather than wait (I really needed to keep myself busy to take my mind off breakfast and coffee anyway) I drove to the other clinic thinking I'd be done sooner, it's only 15 minutes away. However because of big lineup and slow processing, they finally got me in at 8:55 for needle #1 in left arm and the orange drink. One plus, it was the same large cup of drink as with the previous test (hang on, I thought it was supposed to be nearly double - did they screw up and give me too much last time?) anyway it tasted like the same sweetness. 1 boring hour later, thank heavens for my book, needle #2 she couldn't find a spot in my right arm so back in my left. Drag on drag on (sure wish I had taken the PS3) and I was finally done. Needle #3 the elder nurse found a spot in my right but owwww she really had to jab around. Was feeling those sore spots in both elbows for hours today. Now being 11am and with me totally jonesing for egg breakfast (nobody serving breakfast at the drivethrus at that hour) I drove back home and had a little cook-up. MMMMmm fried egg on toast with ham and cheese finally, then got to work just before noon. Yes, I was still hungry again 2 hours after that, lol.
