Well, today made for a huge scare for me. Last week, I had to take the glucose test. The glucose test, as the name states, tests the amount of sugar in your body. If it's too high, they send you off for diabetes tests...
To get the call this morning to let me know my levels were 142, where 140 is the cut-off, was pretty scary. He doesn't seem too worried since it's right above the limit, but he still has to let me know I have to have the additional tests. The additional tests requires me to fast for 12 hours and then they run blood tests for 3 hours... yes, 3 hours!! I guess they take blood at different intervals to see how the body reacts, I'm not quite sure, but I have no idea how I'm supposed to fast for 12 hours and then have 3 hours of tests that will probably actually take 5 hours.
That's potentially 17 hours without eating!!! Baby's gotta eat, and I get hungry!!!
Anyone else have this scare and it turn out to be just a fluke?
