A Revisit With An Old Friend

So today I had my regular scheduled appt and another glucose fasting test. Well, my sugar level was elevated after the hour. I'm so disappointed! The blood work test came out 80, but my finger prick test came out 156. So guess who I have to bond with again? My old friend. Yes I'm back to pricking my damn fingers 3 times a day until I deliver baby Cee. I'm back to starving myself with the GD diet I have to follow. Oh my gosh...I'm hating it right now. I was so miserable on that diet. At the time when I planned out my meal plan I was really excited because I thought it was going to be good and most importantly, healthy. Well after a few a few days I was crying because I couldn't take it. Hubby was so upset because he thought that being pregnant shouldn't involve losing weight. So, I guess I need to put on my big girl panties and suck it up. I have less than less than 7 weeks to go.

On the brighter side, I am now going in every 2 weeks until I hit 36 weeks. After that I will be seeing my midwife every week. Woohoo!!! I have all my appts set up until my due date now.

Hey G-
I'm so sorry you have to do the finger pricking and the GD diet. Where do you find info on the GD diet? I'm thinking I need to pay attention to food with less sugar. Anyways, thinking of you and the 7 weeks will go by so quickly! How wild, only 7 weeks.
