So I'm 27weeks pregnant with baby #2 and on Monday morning I went to the lab to get the glucose test done. Yesterday for some reason my phone was off so today I checked my voicemails and I had one from my doctors office. My test came back 4points elevated and now I have to go in and do the 3 hour test. Omg I am nervous. My family has diabetes all over including gestational diabetes :( both of my parents are diabetic and my cousins have had GD. With my first baby I didn't have anything so that was nice but now I'm scared. My doctor said that it is only 4 points elevated which isn't much but he just wants to make sure I don't have GD. So tomorrow I will pick up the paper work I need in order to go to the lab again and I will be going to the lab on my next day off which is on Tuesday. I am so nervous. I haven't gained much weight in this pregnancy. My starting weight was 189lbs and my actual weight is 195 lbs so 6lbs is all I have gained. I have been watching my eight carefully because of my fear for GD but to think that regardless of my careful watching I might still have it, I am scared. Sorry girls I had to tell someone and I didn't know who.
