well, monday i went to the doctor for my gestational diabetes test...well stupid me forgot that i couldnt eat before i went to the appointment. so i took the test anyway thinking well i ate at 4 am maybe i will pass...nope, my blood sugar was 160 and they wanted 140 or lower. on top of that i keep gaining weight like crazy...i have no idea how because i havent really eaten any more then i did before i got pregnant and i never got this big. they say its my eating habbits so they put me on a diabetes diet before they even got the results of the test!!! i started it today and im pretty proud of myself. i ate maybe 1/4th of what i normally eat and i was satisfied all day long. the real test will be tomarrow because we have to go pay the car payment tomarrow and we always get lunch when we go up to town to get things done. if we do eat it will be subway where i can count my calories. i can only eat 2200 callories in a day today i only ate 1427. and i feel pretty good too. i didnt stuff myself but im not hungry. my husband is trying to do it with me but im not gonna make him do it. i hope this works. im a little bummed i have to go back next week to get a 3 hour long diabetes test then im real nervous that i do have gestational diabetes...i would feel so bad i let myself get like that. lets just hope for the best!

Did you do the shorter one ?  I'll tell ya right now, LOTS of women fail the first test, only to pass the 3 hour one.   GL! :)

be careful honey, dont go too low on calories ok? eat just eat without going nuts. LOL so a bit of this and a bit of that is not gonna hurt you. its eating like a whole package or 2 servings etc etc.


you should get your diabetes thing redone since you did eat. and i agree with the PP. i failed my first one and passed the longer one.

I failed my first and passed my second too. Good thing to remember being you go into town before lunch is to drink a great big bottle of water! It will help you feel full, faster ;)
