Worried

You guys, I have a confession.

I am so scared about this 3 hour glucose test tomorrow.

I have to have four tests done and I have to "pass" at least three of them to be considered gestational diabetes free.

I'm worried that I'm going to "fail" and J will totally freak out and I'll have to take insulin and the baby will end up weighing 14 pounds and my agency will never work with me again.

Sigh.

Man! It's like that time I had to take a drug test, but couldn't because I'd had poppyseed muffins the day before. OK, it's nothing like that, other than the fact they're both stories about tests, but still.

You will do fine. If you just "barely" failed the first one and that was because of what you ate *that day* then you really aren't at risk. Just make sure you eat right tonight and in the morning! ;)

Don't be too worried, but do lay off the carbs (OMG I CAN'T BELIEVE I SAID THAT!!!). Gestational diabetes is no joke and can lead to a lot of discomfort down the line. Dig into some yummy green salads and dive into a bread bowl the second the baby is born.

I wish I knew anything about pregnancy so I could think of something knowledgable and comforting to say. I understand freaking out about this type of thing, but I'm sure that everything is going to work out okay. I'm sending all my positive mojo your way!

This comment sounds like Dr. Seuss, which means I've had a long day!

Okay I'm done. Try not to freak out too much! (Easier said than done, I know.)

Just relax...

You don't want your nerves playing with your hormones playing with your sugar levels...

Breathe...

I had to take those tests too...I was negative for ges. diabetes. Turns out what I ate before the first test effected the outcome.

I hope you pass!

God, I hated that thing!
There are an awful lot of false positives on that first test, though. Mine was, my sis-in-law had a false positive for all three of her pregnancies. Good luck - hope it's conclusively not GD!
