Today, I was tested for the Gestational Diabetes. This might seem quite dumb, but I didn’t even know what the test was for. :(( So, like always, I Googled it. Hahahaha. :))
What is Gestational Diabetes?
Pregnant women who have never had diabetes before but who have high blood sugar (glucose) levels during pregnancy are said to have gestational diabetes. Based on recently announced diagnostic criteria for gestational diabetes, it is estimated that gestational diabetes affects 18% of pregnancies.
So, that was what I found out. The nurse made me drink this orange drink and it tasted quite horrible. Wanted to vomit, just saying. I had to wait for an hour and I test 126, She said that that was high, but that I still had to wait for one more hour. So, I waited.
I was worrying about this test. I have been eating lots of Snicker bars. I’m a huge fan of Snicker bars and when I can get my husband to buy me one, I do. But I felt quite guilty as I waited for my results. I didn’t want to be the cause of something bad to my baby. I was worried. I was hoping every moment that the results would come out fine.
When I was tested again, I tested 104. I was so relieved. I was told that that was normal and that I could leave. It was such a relief. :)))
I’m so happy. :))
