Not a good day. :(

So, it turns out that I failed my screening test for gestational diabetes so on Friday, I went in for the 3 hour glucous tolerance test and JUST got the results.

I have Gestational Diabetes! I have an appointment with the GD department at Markham Stouffville on Monday and because my results were not THROUGH THE ROOF, it doesn’t look like I will need to have insuline shots. First, they will attempt to control the GD with a specialized diet so that is good news!!

Other than the crappy news, I did have a great MW appointment today:

BP: 122/85
Babies HB: 150 BPM
Weight: 4lbs since last appointment so 10lbs total



  1. Sorry to hear that 😦


    I’m so sorry to hear that. At least it’s not bad enough for the shots -and can be controlled with diet. I’ve been on the same diet for about 2 months now – in an effort to get things right – it’s not too bad.

    At least everything else has gone well, especially the MW appointment!

      I’m sorry to hear that you got some bad results. But it’s true, at least it can be controlled right now with diet. Keep me posted.

        Thanks Cath! Will do!

      Yeah, from what I have read, it basically involves making sure that you don’t eat carbs alone and that you always have some protein with it.

  2. Sorry to hear that Sue!! 😦

    Glad the rest of your appt went well. Does that mean that you are going to be getting tons of u/s to peek in on little Sydney?? That could be a nice silver lining to the GD. (trying to find an upside) 😉

    • I am not sure..I would guess that I have at least a few U/S in my future. I am still able to stay with my MW for appointments etc. but I will be consulting with an OB in the next week or so so, I should know more.

      The other upside is that we may see Sydney earlier than expected as they will often induce moms with GD so the baby doesn’t have a chance to get too big.
