I celebrated with a foot long grilled cheese sandwich, homemade potato chips with parmesan cheese, and a tiramisu gelato shake .
I didn't even attempt to follow the guidelines of their test. I ate my normal breakfast and then scarfed some drive through breakfast probably no more than 20 minutes before the test. I had also brought along my water bottle and was drinking that in the waiting area. The lab tech came to give me the liquid to drink and said, 'So you haven't had anything to eat or drink in the last 8-10 hours right?'
Then DD had her 2 year check up in between my drinking the glucose and having the blood taken. Well there was a wait and her appt went long and I didn't make it back to the lab to get my blood drawn until close to 2 hours after drinking the glucose....
Anyway, the doctor called and said I passed. It was a 97 and under 140 is good. LOL.
