So I am totally dreading this. I have my 13 week appointment this Friday and I have to take an early glucose test because of several factors: a family history of diabetes, my age, and as much as I hate to admit it, I haven't exactly lost all my baby weight from the last pregnancy. And she's 3 now. Embarrassing, I know.
I had to do this with my last pregnancy, too, because of family history. I failed both the early one and the later one and had to do the 3 hour glucose test... twice! (Which I am pretty sure should be considered a form of torture.) I barely passed the 3 hour tests last time.
I am terrified of being diabetic, not necessarily gestational diabetes. Can't wait to sail through this pregnancy and get myself back into good shape. The early test is what detects diabetes.
Sincerely praying that I pass this one...
