So this is my 3rd pregnancy. in my first and second I failed the 1 hr glucose test but passed the 3hr. This time I talk with the ob and asked if I could just skip the 1 hr and do the 3 hr, of course thinking I would pass it. I failed it...I think. So I was told that I have GD and was sent to the pharmacy to get all the supplies...blood glucose monitor, strips, needles....I went to the nutrition class bla bla bla. So I hve to eat a diet that counts carbs...basically i can have 15 servings a day. I have to check my blood sugar 2 hours after eating and it has to be under 120.
So my levels are usually around 73-85 after 2 hours. I makes me wonder if I really have this. I feel like my levels would be higher.Not to mention that i was informed that under 70 is really low and needing to eat now.
Now don't get me wrong before they told me this I was proabably eating to many carbs during the day and now i am not but i feel like this is unnessesary. it is also painful :(
Would you bring it up at your next visit and fight it? oh yeah and the baby is a little big...at 26 weeks she was approx. 2lbs10oz. i am 28w6d today and I have only gained 19 pounds. my other babies were 8lbs8oz and 8lbs5oz
what would you do?
