I went in yesterday for my 28 week glucose screening. I had gestational diabetes when I was pregnant with Jack and have a 50% chance of having it again. As you've probably guessed from the title post, yep, I am gestational diabetic yet again! Booooooooo! That's what I have to say about that! I tested 8 points higher than the passing number and they would technically require me to come in for the three hour glucose test, but I told them in advance that I was NOT participating in that! Heck no! Three hours of yucky sugar drinks and then having your blood drawn three times. I would pass out for sure! No way! So, now I have to test my glucose levels (and live on a diabetic diet) for the next two weeks, until my next appointment when they can see my numbers and then MAYBE I won't have to test FIVE times a day if I am able to manage it okay. Yuck! Boooooooooooo! Those two delicious chocolate chip cookies that I had last night, will be my last until after baby delivery. Then, bring on the sweets!!!!!! I miss the cookies already. I love you chocolate. Good bye for now. I will see you soon.

On a GOOD note. I will probably only gain 2 more pounds for the rest of my pregnancy.


  1. Good bye chocolate for me too :( - John

  2. I had gestational diabetes with both pregnancies. I don't blame you at all for the test. I actually went the reverse way and told them to skip the one hour test and go straight to the 3 hour so that I wouldn't have to do both, but I didn't realize I might be able to just say no to the 3 hour and go from there.
