Oh No!

I just talked with my doctor's office and they informed me that I FLUNKED my Glucola test (166)! Again. This was the second time because I didn't believe it the first time. Ugh. I have to drink 40 oz of fruit juice every day today, Wednesday and Thursday, and then on Friday I have to fast in the morning (after midnight Thursday), then drink the glucola stuff, and then have my blood drawn every hour after that for the next three hours! I just cannot believe it, but I suppose that would explain why I am getting so BIG and not gaining that much actual weight.

I guess I'd better get rid of those cookies I bought yesterday.

I don't think the GDM and weight coincide...a close friend of mine had it and she barely gained weight at all...
I guess you better like steak!!

Well, I guess if you have to drink sugar-y fruit juice, wouldn't cookies only help? Or do I not know what I'm talking about here? (No one answer that....)

Oh Betty, besides that test sounding dreadful, I sure do hope it doesn't show you gotta do the shots every day thing. I will be praying!!!

(P.S. This is how girls are . . . they suck the life right outta ya. ;o) Hah!)

Bummer - I'll be praying for you. Doesn't sound like fun, at all!
