Quoting Allissa Specht:" My doctor was hoping id be diabetic so he tested me twice during my pregnancy this time lol! (My son was 2 weeks early and 9I lbs, he was estimated to be gaining a pound a week from 35a weeks.)"
Quoting Allissa Specht:" <blockquote><b>Quoting Chelsea Dawns Mama:</b>" He HOPED you were diabetic?? Douche ... [snip!] ... to come at 31 weeks, and again at 36 weeks so I had to be delivered at 38a weeks (my uterus was nearly ruptured by that point)."
Quoting Chelsea Dawns Mama:" Count your blessings that your body doesn't hate you so bad you gotta take insulin"
Quoting Katie[ღ]Siℓas:" Oh I do, I'm very grateful that I don't need insulin. I just can't wait to be done taking these pills ... [snip!] ... be up way late waiting to test my blood Sometimes it's hard and I miss meals, specially on days when I have appointments. "
Quoting Chelsea Dawns Mama:" My dietitian suggested eating RIGHT after you test(a snack), and then waiting an hour or so to eat. ... [snip!] ... Insulin Wait 30 min Breakfast Wait 2 hours, test Eat lunch Wait 2 hours, test Insulin Dinner Wait 2 hours,test Snack Test Bed"
Quoting Katie[ღ]Siℓas:" I only have to test 4 times a day, and only after a meal. It was 1 hour, which was much more manageable ... [snip!] ... insulin I'd rather have my snack AFTER I test, but then I have to wait longer to eat my actual meal. It's a bit irritating. "
Quoting Chelsea Dawns Mama:" No you don't. And snack on veggies, they don't affect your numbers."
Quoting Katie[ღ]Siℓas:" But.. boo veggies I try hard to keep healthy but I just cannot stand most veggies.. I like corn, that's pretty much it lol. I like carrots, but only when they are baked with a roast "
Quoting brooke_x:" I had to fast (but it was overnight so no biggie) but I had to have two glucose tests both were 3 hours, ... [snip!] ... because diabetes runs in the family. What is this one hour test? we never get this option it's straight to three hours :s "
Quoting Chelsea Dawns Mama:" The "mini version" of the 3 hour. Blood only gets drawn twice."
Quoting brooke_x:" Oh, well yeah I assumed it was the same just less hours, just curious as to why I never got that option. Not that I'm complaining, it's all over now anyways haha "
