I'll be honest I was a bit paranoid at the thought of having gestational diabetes. This "lil" guy is likely gonna be bigger than any of my girls just based on genetics so the possibility of having to manage diabetes to ensure he didn't get too big made me nervous! Plus I really feared being labeled if I am to do any future surrogacies.
So, I got my results this morning and big sigh of relief, I passed ... thank goodness!!!
The nurse said my numbers looked really good for the 3hr tolerance test. 84 after fasting, 160s after 1hr (same as other day), 130s after 2hrs and back down to the 80s after 3hrs.
Looks like my body is taking a bit longer to break down the glucose but it's getting the job done and no gestational diabetes diagnosis. So with the all clear I can breath again.
