The results weren't in this morning when I called, and I forgot to call back until after they were closed. So I'll call tomorrow.
I'm assuming if the results were really bad, they'd have called me.
I'm dreading having more blood drawn. This time I'm going to look at the tech's tag a little closer. The other day said, "student"...and she took an extra (large!) vial accidentally AND it hurt quite a bit the whole time (8 tubes total!). And, I let dd come watch, so I didn't indulge in any more than, "could you move it to the right just a little?", though I wanted to make her try again because it was obviously NOT a good stick...but the blood came out and we were done.
Thanks for the "eat normal" tip. I'll remember that. It's funny because some days I know I eat a ridiculous amount of sugar, and other days I don't eat any, and have no desire for any. I think it is directly dependant on how busy I am and how sick I feel. The sicker and busier equals more sugar...
Anyone else still have to do the test?
"If you keep doing the same things you've always done, you'll keep getting the same results you've always gotten."
I'll get my results next week, but I felt totally fine after the drink and the test so I'm hoping that's a good sign.

"New Recommendations for Gestational Diabetes Testing: There is not one right way to test for GDM."
My midwife didn't seem to think I needed to do it if I didn't want to, even though I'm "older" (35) I've had two healthy pregnancies, no family history etc.
My American MD says that he doesn't test for GD routinely anymore, and this is my second pregnancy with a Japanese doctor and I know he said he would be checking my glucose at the last blood draw, but didn't have me fast or drink anything special before hand.
I do remember drinking the glucose for my first, and I likedit :
sara - I like the drink too. I just don't like how it makes me feel sometimes!
Just1 - I still need to take my second 3 hour test, which I'll do in one week since that's the only time I could get a babysitter. I skip the one hour and did the 3 hour at 14 weeks pg as well. However, my EDD is technically March 5, so I'm behind in weeks from most of you here. (I'm high risk and repeat c-section though so the baby is definately coming in Feb, which is why I visit both boards).
