Grrrrr.

Damn it. I failed the one hour GD test. I have to go back for the 3 hour on Thursday. The levels they want are 134 or under, and I was at 145. I wonder if the large amount of birthday cake eaten over the weekend has anything to do with it?

What pisses me off is that I passed the same test with Hulk with flying colors. Sigh. I guess each pregnancy if different. I also haven't been able to exercise with this pregnancy, and I'm sure that makes a difference.

Anyway - I forgot to tell you all about my birthday weekend. My MIL visited, and she decided to totally reorganize my kitchen and pantry. Which normally would piss me off - but our kitchen was the last thing we unpacked when we moved in 5 years ago, and even since, we've been meaning to reorganize it. Especially with all the baby 'stuff' (bottles, dishes, bibs, sippy cups) and anticipation of MORE baby stuff to come. Now, everything is off the counter, we've gotten rid of things we never use, the baby stuff has it's own cabinet and I can see everything in my pantry! Now I just need to manage to keep it that way.

I'm so sorry - I'd be "grrrr-ing" too. Happy Birthday to you though! Nice to have someone else do the kitchen organization!!!

Every pregnancy is different but also twin pregnancies are more likely to have GD.

I failed my one hour test with a very similar number, but my 3 hour plus 4x/day finger pricks for a couple days in the hospital were just fine. Hope you show a similar pattern!

Oh and you're gestating two babies this time! Hopefully the 3 hour will go just fine. I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

Happy belated birthday!

Oh, I love an organized pantry. Maybe I should go clean mine out today...

Good luck on the three hour. Lots of people fail the one hour and go on to pass the three hour easily.

OH NO! Sorry about the test, that sucks! I hope you pass the 3 hour test with FLYING colors!

YAY for a organized kitchen. I love that feeling so much!

I failed the one hour and passed the three hour with my first pregnancy, then had GD in my third. It's not so bad, really, once you get used to the diet. I was able to manage the condition through diet alone.

I will hope for your sake, though, that you pass the three hour with flying colors. It is much more fun to have a bit of ice cream without wondering what protein you can eat to "balance" it.

Don't be too hard on yourself, double the placenta means a much higher risk of GD than just having one placenta. 145 over 134 isn't so far off that the birthday cake could have made much of a difference!
