I am 29 weeks! I'm almost to the 30's. And almost to counting down single-digit weeks until baby girl is here. Still no swelling, still wearing the wedding ring, and feeling great! Though major fatigue has hit me and I've had to start taking naps again. Which I hate. I always feel so groggy and like I've wasted my day when I take a nap. I don't take "cat naps". I nap with the kids, who sleep anywhere from 1-3 hours.
Anyway, I just got my GTT results and they came in at a 137. Lab says over 139 is problematic and considered gestational diabetic. However my doctor wants it under 130. So I'm borderline based on the lab's calculations. Which means... 3-hour glucose test!
I made the appointment for tomorrow morning at 7:40. If you know me, you know I am not a morning person. At all. I don't even talk to people in the mornings. I don't think I even open my eyes. I just stumble around and grunt.
I also have to fast, so no food after 7:30 tonight. Which is fine because I don't usually eat anything late unless I feel as though I'll be sick.
I'm really nervous. I knew this was a possibility because of the PCOS (puts you at higher risk of developing it). So if you pray, please pray that I pass with flying colors! I think that I will. I HOPE that I will. And a major re-evaluation of my diet is in order, no matter the outcome. I've let a few things go since being pregnant because I knew I wouldn't get to do them after I had the baby because of my strict exercise and diet regimen I had going on pre-pregnancy. Not a smart idea, fyi.
I think that the reason I was borderline this time was because I ate breakfast as I walked out the door to the lab. I wasn't required to fast this last time. I wish I would've just fasted anyway to avoid having to do the 3-hour in the event all is truly well. Eh, well can't do anything about it now.
And now I'm off to figure out a low-carb, high protein dinner.
