So I had an email from my midwife this morning telling me that I failed the one hour glucose test. Of course. I pitched a fit that would have made DD proud when I read the email... just SO angry about it and frustrated! I only failed by a few points! Aaaaarrrrghh!!!!!! I'm just so overwhelmed with everything that we have going on right now, that the thought of having to find childcare for DD, then waste an entire morning sitting at my midwife's office getting my blood drawn (which I hate and which if you read my update on my other thread you know tends to make me pass out) four billion times. Okay, slight exaggeration, but you know what I mean.
When I went through this with DD I was absolutely terrified that I had gestational diabetes. This time, I'm not as worried about it (especially since I only failed the screening by a few points), but I am a little anxious about it. I just really don't want anything to risk me out of trying for a VBAC. I'm not sure if GD would or not, but it definitely wouldn't make things any easier. Anyway, I know it's not that big of a deal to have to take the 3 hour test. I'm just frustrated and overwhelmed with everything that's going on. Thanks for listening to me complain .
Ugh, how frustrating. Every time I go to my OB I have to find a sitter so to have to find one for the three-hour test would be PITA, especially when you failed by only a few points. I'm nervous about my upcoming test too for similar reasons. Hopefully you will pass the test so you can still try for your VBAC.

Girl I hear ya! I have never failed the 1 hr in the past, but knowing that my risk is higher with the twins is freaking me out! #1 I dont like needles and if they tell me I have GD I dont know that I could prick my finger! YES, I am an RN and I have had to give myself belly shots in the past, but finger sticks hurt! LOL
I hope that your test will go well and maybe DH can help watch DD!
ETA: that I have already decided that when I have to go in for mine I am going in 1st thing in the AM and I am not going to eat! LOL
So sorry you didn't pass the 1 hr., and only by a few points at that. I know it must be tough to get a babysitter for 3 hrs. I'm not sure what I would do if that happens to be the case with me. Here's to hoping you pass the 3 hr. with flying colors!
That stinks and only by a few points.. When I took the 3 hr, I had to take DS with me... Not fun, but I packed tons of snacks, books and toys. It wasn't too bad.
Ahh no! I am really surprised that they are making you do it again for only a couple of points. I hope it all works out in the long run.
