So, I went to the doctor today for my "normal" check-up and glucose screening test. Well, I passed the normal check-up, but miserably FAILED my glucose screening test. What does this mean? I'm not exactly sure, other than there is a high possibility that I have gestational diabetes. I'm not completely shocked, because my mom had this condition with all three of her pregnancies. But, I must say I'm a little worried. I don't know much about G.D. but plan to research it before my test on Tuesday.
PLEASE PRAY! I would love to have my test done on Tuesday and have the doctor tell me I do not have G.D. What a blessing that would be! But, if that's not the case, pray that God gives me the strength to deal with all the complications of this condition, including diet, insulin shots, monitoring and of course, labor and delivery.
Also, if any of you have had this condition or know someone that has, I would love some positive feedback. I'm hoping its more common than I think and not as difficult to deal with.
