So it happened....................
I failed my glucose test!!!! Worst part = the cutoff is 135 and what do you think I got??? 135!
Don't worry I sat and cried in self pity yesterday, so today is a better day. I just thought about how unfair it is and how I am going to refuse the 3 hour test because this is ridiculous, but then I realize I may not be thinking clearly.
If I was at the cutoff I "should" pass the 3 hour test and won't it be nice to say I legitimately passed rather than I refused? And if I don't pass, I guess there is a reason and I need to make sure baby girl is healthy.
The doctor herself called me yesterday, which I need to give the practice credit for. How can you be mad when they take the time out of their day to personally call you instead of having a nurse who you never met do it. The nurse is calling me today to schedule the appointment, but she said she wanted to give me the news. I guess they get points for that. Needless to say I was not the nicest to her on the phone. I hope she understands.
It's also a little frustrating that all doctors have different limits. Just give us 1 universal limit so I can't go, "but I would have passed under this doctor's rules!"
Whatever, enough complaining for the day. Worst part is I already used up my shopping therapy to take care of the fact that I ripped my favorite maternity jeans while pulling them up. They are still wearable, but only with really long shirts (like I wear belly shirts these days).
Anyway, looks like I'm just going to have to suck this one up. That wasn't happening yesterday, but today is a new day. What can you do right? Positive thoughts bring positive results!
We'll see! :)
