Ok so...I had GD with my first two pregnancies. I had always failed the 1 hour and last time I passed the 3 hour but only by 2 points. Two weeks after passing it I ended up being diagnosed with it because my sugars jumped like crazy and I ended up having to take glyburide because my fasting numbers were ridiculous. This time I am going through a civilian clinic, so everything is different. When I took the 1 hr my blood sugar level came back at 135 (140 is their cut off). They tested me right at 24 weeks. I asked my MW if that was a little early and if I could test again around 28-30 weeks. She said no and that I passed and I should follow a semi GD diet just to be safe. Just to be safe???? I mean you have it or your don't. Anywho I told her that if I did not have it that I would watch most what I ate but not be tied down to it. She said that's fine.
Now a few weeks ago I told her I started feeling "off" sluggish and what not. She said my Iron levels were low so I was anemic and started my on supplements. Those have since returned to normal levels. Now this week the sluggish is still there but now I am angry all the time. I mean little things set me off and I fly off at the handle. My body just feels "off" again, hard to explain I suppose. I asked her if I could repeat the 1 hour test, and again no. I asked her if she would prescribe me some test strips so I can use my meter and at least see how my sugars are looking, again she said I didn't need too UGH!
So I went to walmart a bit ago and bought my own meter and strips, and those suckers are not cheap! Anywho I tested my blood, this is 4 hours after I had lunch btw. My blood sugar was 131!!!! UGH. So I plan on testing like I would the rest of the weekend to see how I look. Maybe it was a bad day or time. But I just don't understand why my MW seems to care less. I thought MW's were supposed to be more personal!!!!??? Anywho sorry about the long vent....
