I wasn't really surprised but what was surprising was how far off my meter was from the blood test. I tested with my meter at the 1 hr and got 155, the blood test got 187! That's a pretty big gap! I think I'll ask the MFM lady to write me a scrip for a new meter. This one may have lived its life since the last pregnancy!

Sigh! guess I'll have to get back in the habit of eating well...something I totaly should be doing anyway...Maybe the exercise will help with the sciatica too. Trying really hard to find the silver lining! :)

That's crazy that the numbers were so far off. I wonder if the lab results could be wrong? Hugs.
