Against better judgement, I did the glucose tolerance test yesterday morning. I am 30 weeks pregnant.
I felt fine all day yesterday.
This morning, I woke up nauseated. I have also had some chest tightness and trouble catching my breath. I just feel "off." It feels very similar to how I felt when I struggled with anxiety for a brief period about a year and a half ago. I also have noticed I feel this way whenever I take certain antihistamines. My blood sugar is fine (101 about an hour after oatmeal and a banana) and my blood pressure is fine (115/75).
This is my fourth baby and my fourth time taking the GTT, and I didn't have these symptoms in the past. I have never tested "positive" for Gestational Diabetes.
Is it possible that the "Glucola" has just thrown my system off? I have an appointment with my OB/GYN tomorrow afternoon, but was hoping to get some encouragement/advice today.
I have Stiff Person Syndrome and my other car is a candy apple red Rascal. Feel free to ask me about it.
