I passed my 3 hour!<br><br>
of course, considering that last time it didn't come on until later, they cautioned me to really watch my sugar intake now that I am getting to that same time frame where it came on with Isabella....but I at least passed the test and have a reprieve with no official GD label and a for sure earlier induction.<br><br>
And I got to talk to my favorite nurse who does not officially work for Dr Lowder (my OB) anymore <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"> but I missed her and it was great to catch up with her.<br><br>
She reviewed my chart and said I was doing great with the pregnancy-my weight gain is only between 1-2 lbs and she understands so much about my PCOS that it was nice to have her really be able to talk more stuff over with in regards to the pregnancy<br><br>
I am so relieved - for now! LOL Just pray that it doesn't come on later like with Bella so he won't have her same issues with her BS regulating etc<br><br>
YAY!!!

In reading more-and looking at my symptoms, I think I am having hypoglycemia attacks instead<br><br><div style="margin:20px;margin-top:5px;">
<div class="smallfont" style="margin-bottom:2px;">Quote:</div>
<table border="0" cellpadding="6" cellspacing="0" width="99%"><tr><td class="alt2" style="border:1px inset;">But what is hypoglycemia? It is the medical condition of having an abnormally low level of sugar in the blood. <b>In some cases this is due to the pancreas producing too much of the insulin hormone</b>. Insulin is the key hormone that helps to change sugar into energy. Hypoglycemia is most commonly caused by stress and poor diet, it can also develop as a result of a poorly functioning pancreas, tumors in the pancreas, liver dysfunction, or pregnancy.<br><br>
The symptoms of insulin reaction differ from <span style="text-decoration:underline;">shakiness, sweating, or dizziness to feeling faint, disoriented</span>, or a tingling sensation. Keep in mind; if you take insulin injections, you need to keep some form of sugar-sweetened candy in your purse, where you can take it anywhere, at home, at work, and in your car.<br></td>
</tr></table></div>
I already know my body produces too much insulin--I am considered insulin resistant . and all the underlined symptoms are what happens to me.<br><br>
I know the answer is to eat more often blah blah blah, but seriously, what do you do when you seriously just not eat?? I must have the smallest appetite in the world right now!
