more pregnancy woes

I just got a call from my doctor, informing me of "elevated glucose levels". During my first glucose test I scored a 189. Normal levels are 100 or under. So I went back and took a 3 hour test and 2/4 of my samples were elevated.

I am waiting on a call from the nutrionist. I am being put on a diabetic diet, and than a few weeks from now, around 26 weeks, they will retest me. If they are still elevated I will have to start checking my blood sugar levels and all of that good stuff.

So that is what is going on for now. The ultrasound appt. is set for March 18th!! We are excited to find out who exactly this little peanut is!

I am so excited to find out whether its a boy or girl!! I am so sorry about the diabetes thing. I hope it goes well for you.

It's a little girl, of course!! Have I been wrong yet? Grandma's thrilled she'll be called Bailey. I love you. I hope things go better in the next few weeks. Love, Mom

I hope the test goes well - it's hard enough having to feed four kids without having to make something special for yourself! I can't wait to hear what you're having!!

All I can say is, hopefully it's just gestational diabetes. Checking your blood sugar really isn't that big of a deal - it's a pain, but not really that painful, if you know what I mean. As far as a "diabetic diet," I don't follow one since I regulate mine with blood sugar with insulin. Just be aware that carbs are what make blood sugar soar, so you're probably going to have to watch your breads, sweets, and starches. Yipee. I'm sure the dietitian will have some good suggestions for you. Good luck :)
