3 Hour Glucose Test

Monday, September 21, 2009

Well, today was the day. I took the test this morning. The wait was brutal, as I had imagined. No TV or reading material will do that. I brought some magazines, but I breezed through those quickly.

The blood draws weren't very pleasant, but not too big of a deal. I don't mind getting blood drawn but 4 times in the same spot gets a little sensitive. LOL.

If the way I feel right now is any indication of pass/fail, I say fail. I was very, very shaky, headachey, dizzy, and sweating profusely. I feel better now that I ate, but I didn't feel anything like that when I passed my first glucose test. I guess we'll see!

I felt crappy after my one hour and I still passed, so hopefully it was just a fluke and you passed. And if it's any consolation, you only have 9 weeks left :)

I felt very crappy after my three hour and failed. Hope that's not the case for you!

Yah, I've heard it can go either way. My Nurse thinks my body is telling me something isn't right, because the 1 hr I failed I felt horrible, and the 3 hr I felt 10x as bad. She is betting that I fail this one as well. I guess we'll see!!

Thank you both for your well wishes.
