I passed my gestational diabetes test. Thanks to all the people who took the time to call or email and ask how it all went. I honestly did not think I would pass and neither did my dr. The baby is measuring a few weeks big and the test made me light headed and very flushed. The doctor actually told me he thought I would fail. Typically one would assume those symptoms were from high sugar. Most likely I was feeling the sugar drop and that's what made me feel ill. I also found out that my iron is good. I wasn't concerned about it, but apparently this is the time in pregnancy where a lot of women become iron deficient. My next appointment is December 15th and that's when I start seeing the dr more often and having more "thorough" exams. BLAH! We will also try to pick a date for my c-section at the next appointment. Woo hoo!

Yay! I'm so happy for you. I can't imagine starting a diabetic diet and checking your sugar when you're 7 months pregnant. I'm glad your iron was good too.
