I just got a call from my doctor and I failed the 1-hour gestational diabetes test. I’m not yet going to worry too much about it because I seem to remember this being a common occurrence, and women go on to pass the 3-hour test. But I am curious.
If you’re reading this and you have had an experience with either failing the first test and passing the second, OR with gestational diabetes, might you share your experience with me? Does it just mean changing one’s diet? Does it mean I have to “take it easy” and will have to postpone school? Just wondering what my worst case scenario might be.
Also: did you end up with Type 2 postpartum? I have so many questions.
I’m also anemic and need an iron supplement immediately. Any insight there as well?
27 weeks and falling apart, my friends. Falling apart.
