Dangit PCOS!!!

I failed my glucose test.
I am good on iron, but my sugar level was supposed to be under 140, and mine was 187. So.... now I have to go in for a 3 hour test. My doctor was telling me how unusual it was since I am lean and gaining the appropriate amount of weight. I said, could it be the PCOS? She said, yep that's exactly what it is.

How annoying! I really don't feel like I eat bad either! I haven't used the pregnancy to get away with eating bad. Although I do love my carbs (hello bread, I love you) Now I am going to research ways of eating better I guess.

I just really want to pass this test! I can't imagine having to prick my finger 4 times a day and see a dietitian. But, whatever it takes to bring our healthy boy into this world, I'll do it!

Dangit PCOS! I wish you would leave me alone!


  1. Hope you pass the 3 hour!!! Take a book or something to do, it takes forever!!!

  2. I've heard that sometimes people who fail the 1-hour pass the 3-hour no problem. It's a bummer that you didn't pass the 1-hour, but at least things have largely gone great this pregnancy! My mom had GD with my brother and she got her own dietician, etc., and he's been super healthy and will turn 21 on Tuesday!

  3. Bummer! I can say that I know 3 girls who just recently failed the 1 hour test but ended up passing the 3 hour test so I hope you will be the 4th. Either way I am positive you can get thru it!! GOOD LUCK! I will be praying!

  4. Doesn't it stink that even a pregnancy doesn't make it go away! Annoying! GL on your 3 hour! Bring something to eat, I was starving after mine.
