boyohboyohboy replied: I am sorry to hear about your glucose test. I always failed all of mine..all three!
but why the perinatologist?
I also found they have nice newer meters now that you can prick the arm or other places that dont hurt as much. I hope you are able to diet control insulin is what sucks..
Mommy2Isabella replied: I am sorry you didn't pass your test! I hope the rest of the pregnancy goes by quickly for you!!
Well,I will get my meter in the morning..As far as controling it,they are pretty sure the diet will work,but if not I won't have to do insulin shots they said that I would have to take a pill..I am hoping the diet works..I am gonna have to ask my Dr Monday if I can eat anything good on Thanksgiving..

A&A'smommy replied: awwww I'm sorry sweetie!!!
punkeemunkee'smom replied: I am so sorry! Like I said before tho-my mom had gestational with most of my siblings (which is 8 kids ) and all of them were born perfectly healthy...just a little on the chunky side at birth. None of them have any lasting affects and none of them were even overweight as kids.
Danalana replied: I'm sorry about the test! I'm sure you will do just fine on the diet!!
Crystalina replied: Women fail this everyday. You'll do fine. I know it's a bummer but you can do it.
Gabriella may not be the only chunky monkey born lately.
Have you ever failed it before? I know plenty of women who have and sailed right through with a nice healthy baby. Positive thoughts!!!
Calimama replied: I'm sorry.
You didn't have GD did you Crystal??My SIL stuck me for the 1st time this morning before I ate (her and my BIL-her husband) are both nurses,so they will be giving me the little things to stick myself with (they are easier to use..LOL) and anyway it was just a tiny bit higher than they wanted it to be..They are saying 95 or less before eating and mine was 108..My sil said that isn't bad at all..they consider anything from 80 something (can't remember the exact number) to 120 normal.. Still got 3 more times to stick myslef today.. Thanks for all the positive replies everyone!!
No, I didn't have it. I failed the first test but passed the 3 hour. Gabriella was just big because I give birth to toddlers.
Swood75 replied: LOL Crystal..That was funny what you said about having toddlers..I am hoping Kassidy isn't any bigger than Kam was and he was my big baby at 8 lbs 2 oz..LOL
