... of the one hour glucose test. My level was supposed to be 135, and mine was actually 187. I would have been officially diagnosed with gestational diabetes if it had been at least 200. I sat in the doctor's office for three hours yesterday camped out with my iPhone, a book, and my work blackberry. I fasted for 12 hours before the test even began and actually looked forward to the "double the sugar" orange drink (compared to the amount I had for the one hour test) that I got to drink because I was hungry. BBB started rockin' and rollin' and it lasted for about an hour. He was definitely happy and having fun! After four blood draws, I inhaled my PB&J sandwich in about three bites and couldn't guzzle my big water bottle fast enough. I will get the results back today, and I'm pretty much thinking that I do have gestational diabetes because that one hour number was so darn high! The good news is, it is controllable and will not harm my baby if I am smart and watch what I eat. Things could definitely be worse.
