accurate test of how my body processes sugar and boy was I thinking OOPS when I took the finger prick test--it was 166, so above the limit of "normal"
So, I am curious to see how it will be next week when I test again after eating a normal diet.
I would really hate for them to stick a label on me and then call me "high risk" and make it even hard for me to labor naturally.
I guess I should have thought about it before I did it --I should have ate normal and then out of curiosity I could have eaten bad and tested it in the privacy of my home, not to go on my record! UGH.
The morning of I had frosted mini wheats 2 hours prior, the day before that I had: 2 hot cocoas during the day from Starbucks, one with whipped cream,
a veyr large rice crispy treat at the bakery.. a large chocolate chip cookie from the bakery....a grilled cheese sandwich one white bread. I went to the mall and ate all sorts of junk but I now regret that because I really fear being labeled.
Of course it is good for me to know just how much that nasty food makes my body reacts, and how bad it truly is for the baby, but now they have an excuse to say i have some sort of health problem which I probably would have passed the 3 hour with flying colors.
Remind me to eat reallly really well before the next appt.
and every day, for my baby!
