Hello! My last blog posting left you without an answer to whether or not I passed my fasting 1 hour Glucose Challenge Test (GCT). Well. . . I bombed it. And not just a little. I FAILED miserably. The one hour glucose blood level needs to be under 140 to be considered passing. Mine was 175. Nice.
My baseline fasting glucose level was good though - an 84 (totally within normal limits). So, the OB is hopeful that this test was just a fluke and the 3 hour fasting Glucose Tolerance Test (GTT) will show that I am cleared and don't have Gestational Diabetes (GD). He's hopeful. Me too! The babies and I love bread and pasta and cake and ice cream entirely too much to have to cut them out! I am doing the 3 hour test on Friday morning and will sit all morning in my OB office waiting room waiting each hour to be stabbed by the vampires. Fingers crossed I pass this time!!
The only other thing I have for you is your weekly dose of belly pics! These were taken tonight at 28 weeks, 2 days pregnant.
A little closer up
And a bare belly pic=)
Happy Wednesday all!
