I got the results from my 1 hour glucose test. It wasn't good. They like you to be under 140 and mine was 202. Wow, I couldn't believe it. I like sweets just as much as the next person but I have been fairly careful; I had a mild case of Gestational Diabetes with my second pregnancy Brayden. So they scheduled me for the 3 hour test on Friday.
The 24th of July is a state holiday so we were able to do some fireworks with the kids and Kaden actually really likes them. I thought he might be scared but he was very impressed!! The rest of the week we just ran errands and the kids run through the sprinklers on a daily basis which has really helped our dry spots on the lawn. Our little garden is growing very well too!!! It is the first time we have planted one. We have little tiny cucumbers, zucchini squash, and tomatoes almost ready. It has been a fun family project.
Friday came and I had to be to the Lab between 8 and 8:30 am. I was the only one there at first. She had to draw my blood, and then gave me a very sweet drink. It had twice the sugar as the 1 hour test drink does. She then had to draw my blood a half hour later, then a half hour after that. Then I waited an hour and she drew it again and then again an hour later, so a total of 5 times. I have some pretty good bruises. She said it would be a few days before I got the results so we are playing the waiting game again. In the mean time I'm trying to be good and refrain from too many sweets. It's very hard when I crave Tigers Blood Sno cones! My next entry I'll have the results and I will have gone to the doctor again since she is having me come every two weeks now. It's so crazy how fast it is going!
