Or in me rather ;o)
Today I'm taking my GTT - Glucose Tolerance Test - to determine if Owen and I are at risk for GD - Gestational Diabetes - during this pregnancy. The test is taken between 26 and 28 weeks, today I am 26w1d!
Basically all I have to do is drink this pint of sugar concentrate (fruit punch flavored - yum) and then go have my blood drawn exactly 1 hour later. They will use that to test my blood sugar levels, and test me for anemia.
I've heard that it's very common to "fail" the 1 hour GTT, but I am really hoping that I pass :o)
Otherwise, I have to go and do a 3 hour GTT (ugh)! Same procedure, but instead of only waiting 1 hour to have my blood drawn I would have to wait 3 hours - which normally wouldn't be so bad, but you have to fast once you drink this lovely concoction and you can imagine how difficult that is for a pregnant lady to do ;o)
So bottoms up and fingers crossed I pass this time around!
The directions say that the results usually take a couple of days, so I am not planning to hear anything until at least early next week. But I will keep you all updated and posted, as soon as I know something you will too :o)
