No News Doesn't Mean Good News

So after not hearing back from the doctor last Friday or on Monday about my test results for my 3 hour glucose test I thought no news was good news. 

Well I was wrong...

I didn't pass!

I was pretty upset about it all day yesterday.  I haven't done anything differently from my pregnancy with Grayson and now my pregnancy with Crew.  So I was so frustrated that I didn't pass, but after speaking with the Nutritionist today over the phone I feel a little bit better.  I have my first meeting with Nutritionist on Friday AM to review foods to avoid and to kit my diabetic kit to monitor my sugar levels each day.  I am sure there is more to it and I will get the full details on Friday.  I just keep telling myself it is for only 10 more weeks or less.  

This seems like the first bump in the road during this pregnancy so I will be thankful for a uneventful pregnancy thus far. 

This has nothing to do with my pregnancy, but my sister posted a link on her facebook page earlier today and the blog post was amazing.  So I thought I would share it with all of you!

I still can't believe this... :( You are such a GOOD eater. So weird. I'll be praying these 10 weeks go super fast for you. Hugs

I am so sorry to hear the news. It is for only 10 weeks or less. Then back to drinking all the chocolate milk you body wants:)

I understand completely. I never had any problems with my first 3 pregnancies, but with number 4 I developed GD. Like you, I was pretty upset at first, but once I met with the nutritionist and started doing the diet, it was a lot easier than I thought. Bonus, i only gained 14 lbs! And the finger pokes got easier too.

Oh Melissa! I'm so sorry to hear that! I had Gestational Diabetes with Maddie. Please let me know if I can help with anything!

I too, understand! I was so freaked out until I met with our hospital nutritionist. She gave me so many great ideas of what I can eat (and what I shouldn't); plus a food schedule to follow loosely to avoid a big drop and/or big gain in blood sugar. At times it was hard to stick to it...plus my fingers got pretty sore after 4 pokes a day...but all I had to do was remember that it was only for a few months, and it was all for the health of my wonderful baby. Plus--it made for a great first meal after delivery. :)

I am so sorry you have to deal with GD. I am praying these last 10 weeks will go by really fast : )

Jenna said...

I'm sorry you are having to deal with GD this time around! It's strange how different each pregnancy is!

Sara said...

Hoping this is something that will be easy to manage! Maybe you will be so busy the next ten weeks it will just fly by. I just can't believe you did not pass because you have not gained much weight and I am sure eat well!

Katie Jones said...

Oh no! I had GD with my first pregnancy and it was a pain in the fanny. Luckily, I just found out I dont have it with this one. Just remember, its only about 12 weeks!

Amber said...

so sorry you didnt pass. Hope the last few weeks pass quickly

I had this many years ago with my first pregnancy. I remember how careful I was in my eating amd walked 30 min. every day. My daughter was born very healthy and perfect in every way. My next pregnancy I did not have gestational diabetes so I guess each pregnancy is different. I'm sure your baby will be fine.
