I have not liked this at all. This is my Glucose Tolerance Test to make sure I am not suffering with Gestational Diabetes...
I'm pretty sure that I'm not, I don't think I am displaying any of the signs. I have only gained 11lb so far this pregnancy. I feel perfectly fit and well if a little tired now in the afternoons. But considering we are redecorating the house, have a toddler to look after (Jack will be 2 in less than a week) and I am now in my 3rd trimester being tired is normal!
Anyway, it went like this: Arrived for my 9am apt. Seen at 9.30 and had many tubes of blood taken (she did my 28 weeks bloods at the same time). Then given a nasty drink of what tasted like cold, unset jelly. I had to drink this slowly over 5 mins, followed by water also slowly over 2 mins. The I am left for 2 hours (read one trashy mag and 3 chapters of my book). Another tube of blood taken, offer made of food and drink (declined... off to KFC!) and dismissed! I'm to call back at 4pm for my results.
If it's negative WHOO! If it's positive I'll have to go to a clinic tomorrow... I'll be on later with my results!
7.30pm After 2 calls to a very very busy ward who couldn't deal with me, the hosp called me back. I am borderline... That means that tomorrow someone will have to go over my results with a doctor and call me back. I think that early induction will be happening after all :o(
