I received a phone call from my OB yesterday. I have gestational diabetes. I managed to fail 2 out of 3 draws. Here is the funny part about it. If you remember my first 3 hour test, my levels on the 3 hour draw dropped to 32. I talked to my doctor about it and he said if it happened this time to let them know and they would draw my blood early than the 3 hour mark. Well it happened again, but there was a LONG line of people trying to sign in for labs and a few were cussing and angry at the wait, so I took things into my own hands. I sat down and ate about a third of my protein bar. I was fully prepared to explain to my doctor why my levels were high on the 3 hour draw. To my surprise that was the only hour my levels were normal. I really have to sit here and giggle about this. I have to go over to the diabetes center on Tuesday for a class (hopefully). I guess the class is only once a week so it might be to short of time for me to get in that class. If not, they are putting in a rx for my blood sugar machine so I can get some good readings before the class. Since I am already on Metformin there is a pretty good chance I will have to go on a low dose of insulin. At first I was a little bummed about all of this, but it soon went away. This is so manageable and truly not that big of an issue, besides not eating the foods that I like for a few months. And lets face it, there are woman out there that have MUCH worse so I am going to count my lucky stars on how easily this pregnancy has been for the most part.
I also emailed Dr. Kims office this morning to see if we could go ahead and resume my current infusion schedule ( once a week at 15grams). This infusion only takes two hours verses if we go to a 30gram infusion, it will take four+ hours and since I have them done at work, this is just too time consuming. Hopefully they will keep things the same for me. She also said yesterday that I will switch over to Heparin at 30 weeks and discontinue my baby aspirin. It seems everything is falling into place for the arrival of these girls. I have estimated 8 - 10 weeks before their arrival. I have a gut feeling they will be here before 35 weeks. Which is right around the corner! At least nursery is done. We have a big more items we need to purchase, such as bottles, breast feeding pillows, first aid kit and thermometer. I have about 20 boxes of diapers so that should be a good start. We are still buying diapers every payday.
Next big appointment: August 23rd we have another 3D/4D u/s to see the girls! August 29th is MFM appointment for growth scan. Since they have been measuring big, I hope to see that continue :)
August 27th is 28 WEEKS!
