I thought I would post this here because I am due in early March, and I'm not sure how many of those mamas have done this screen yet.
With my last child I recall not feeling so hot with the Gest Diab. liquid they make you drink, but was ok. I was more worried about the drawing blood part (I'm highly phobic of needles).
Anyway, I go in for it today with Dh and drink that crap again, wait one hour, meanwhile the baby is jumping around in there from the sugar and I am not feeling so good myself. I have the blood drawn, which wasnt so bad today, at least only had a mild panic attack during the drawing, but DH was being a good sport about it.
then we leave down the hall so dh can go have an x-ray, was in the same building. We were at the counter giving all his info to the receptionist, he got called in right away... and I could still see him walking when I got sooooo lightheaded, faint, queasy, and said, "i dont feel so good" he didnt hear me, but I was able to sit down and the receptionist brought me some goldfish crackers. They helped and I felt better, but what a reaction!
Do you think my bs dropped just then? I should say I have been feeling kinda hypoglycemic for a couple of weeks while at work. I eat something and feel better, but never had this reaction. I think it was sugar overload then....crash!!!!
Anyone experience this before? Is it something to call the midwife about on Monday or should I wait to tell her at my next appt on Dec 26th? I hate to make big deals over something... I dread the responses and the further testing that this might entail, any suggestions, words of wisdom?
