Initial Glucose Screen

D'oh! 139 max. Mine was . . . wait for it, wait for it . . . 145! Again, I reiterate, d'oh!

Because I had Gestational Diabetes with Dylan, and the recurrence rate is pretty high, my nurse decided to go ahead and do an early screen yesterday. She called me with the results this morning as I was driving to work. I have the dreaded 3-hour Glucose test scheduled next Wednesday morning. Wish me well . . . I just need to pass 2 out of those 3 tests!

And, as if I needed a cherry on top, my blood pressure was really high yesterday (165/120), so more drugs for me, yay! I'm already taking 1 Labetalol 3 times a day. Now I have to take 1 Procardia in the morning ON TOP OF that. So, here we go again. Ho-hum, just another routine appointment for me. At least Philipeanut's heartrate was good: 155-165.

Everyone have a safe and Happy New Year! See you in 2009!

I am sorry about your blood pressure - I was on procardia with Samuel and I didn't like the side effects at all. But it is all worth it if it will keep you and baby healthy!

Lay off the ice cream and maybe the sugar level would go down. HA You know I'm just messing with you. Just think of the blood pressure like this - your body is OVERLY excited to be carrying a baby. YAY BODY! Let me know if you need anything!

Love you girl!

If you pass your glucose test, I will make you all the sweet potato casserole you want! :) Unfortunately, the sugar free version probably is too great.
