as in, i failed the 3-hour glucose test.
i failed the first (fasting) by three points, and the second, right after the glucose, by five points.
i am not sure what this means. i was told i will be getting diabetic counseling…

//

i was just called by the class scheduler.
oh WOW. i am sooo not looking forward to this. i have to go to a gestational diabetic class every week, and i have to get a glucometer, which i will check my blood with for every meal! EEK! i do NOT like getting blood drawn, and sticking myself sounds insane.

please pray for me ladies! i am not very good at limiting myself to what i eat (i always go with what i am craving, or what we have around the house)…which could have a part in this problem. i did the same with my pregnancy with jeremiah tho…

ugh. ugh. and another ugh.

i did find out that my score was not bad – that there was one lady who EVERY stick was over 200!! wow! so it’s not horrible…they just want to get it under control so it WON’T get bad. but i am beyond annoyed about it. i found out the class is a $50 co-pay, and the lancets are $20-$75 co-pay PER 30 day supply, depending on which brand i get. UGH UGH UGH!!!

oh and the classes are on wednesday. so guess what i have on my plate for this wednesday (jerry’s day off, so i won’t be able to see him much at all):
8-12 diabetic class. 12-? get my crown put in. 150-? regular ob appointment. and i am watching nate whenever i get home. YEAH fun times. i am so looking forward to wednesday.

i want august to come NOW.

    i am so sorry jenn! i know it’s frustrating for you. i personally and honestly think that it’s stupid for them to go through all of this for a couple of points. your baby is healthy and will continue to be healthy unless you live on twinkies from tomorrow on. this is just added stress and inconvenience for you, which you don’t need to be going through. everything will be fine though and it will be well worth it in the end, this i promise!!
    hugs!

  2. Well… Now Jen’s got me craving Twinkies… very rude! 😉

    Well… Now Jen’s got me craving Twinkies… very rude! 😉

    I’m sorry you have to deal with all that. I don’t think I could poke myself… I’m such a wimp!!! I hope August comes quickly, and maybe Josiah will be nicer than Jeremiah, and come a couple weeks early! 😉

    (Not that Jeremiah is mean or anything!!!)

    Love,
    Julie

    I’m so sorry Jenn. If you remember I had this when I was pregnant with Cole. The hardest for me was changing my eating habits. I hated the diet, but now that I look back it wasn’t that bad. You will do fine and don’t have much longer til little one is here. Please email me if you need to vent or have a question. No promises I can answer it, but I”m here for you.

    I only meet with a lady once for her to go over my diet and meter. If you don’t need insulin shots then I wouldn’t bother with the classes. If you eat right you can keep it under control, but in some cases that’s impossible and insulin is a must.

    Walmart carries lancets, you may want to check their prices. I freaked out worrying over sticking myself. It doesn’t really hurt and you get used to it. I still check mine every now and then.

  4. Ugh. I am so sorry about the failed diabetes test.
    Ugh. I am so sorry about the failed diabetes test. That just stinks. ((hugs)) I don’t know what I would do if I was ‘restricted’ in my diet. Right now there is just so much that doesn’t even LOOK appealing. Yesterday all I wanted was Salad and doritos. Not exactly the best combination. sigh.

  5. (( hugs )) So sorry sweetie 🙁 I know that isn’t the news yo
    (( hugs )) So sorry sweetie 🙁 I know that isn’t the news you were wanting to hear …

    Sending prayers your way (and I’m totally afraid of needles, too!)

    hi jenn 🙂
    i also wanted to mention that when i was a teenager, i was extremely hypoglycemic. my mom, (a nurse), would take my sugar several times a day, and it really wasn’t bad! it doesn’t feel like a prick as much as a slight shock.
    hugs!

  7. Your new pictures are great!

    Your new pictures are great!

    Never thought to make a cake on father’s day before… Such a bad wife! 😉

    Hugs!

  8. So sorry to hear you failed the glucose test.
    So sorry to hear you failed the glucose test. I hope you don’t have to take the classes every week. All the best with the testing. I am afraid of needles too.

  9. Sorry about all that Jenn.
    Sorry about all that Jenn.

  10. LOTS OF HUGS JENN!!
    I am sorry that the test didn’t go so well.
    LOTS OF HUGS JENN!!
    I am sorry that the test didn’t go so well.. My friend is diabetic.. and she has to test all the time.. and I have a cousin who is diabetic and doesn’t take care of herself like she should..

    It’s no fun… especially all the extra copays and hassles.. but that lil one is still doing well.. and in the end it will all be worth it 🙂

    Sending you lots of hugs..

    I’m so sorry, Jenn! I just got a chance to read this now! Did you have this problem with Jeremiah, or is it new with this pregnancy? I just feel for you so much, sweetie. I’m awful with getting blood taken and getting pricked before every meal sounds unbelievable. At least this should go away right after birth and won’t be a permanent condition. I can’t wait for August, either. I’m sick of prodding, I’m sick of my female preggo friends being prodded, and I’m SO SICK OF COPAYS!

    Big hugs!!!

    ummm, poor yousers. i never thougth i could control my eating until this happened…i only thought of the monks not myself. so sucky not getting to have all the stuff you’re craving!
