Long story short: I had to take the 1hr test at 14-15 weeks (history of diabetes throughout the family tree, hypoglycemic as a child/teen) and failed it. They made me take the 2hr test a week later, I failed it, and when I took the 3hr test the same week I barely passed. Now at 26 weeks, I had to re-take the 1hr test (standard testing is around 26-28 weeks) and I failed it again.
Well instead of having to take the 2hr test all over again, they gave me an Accu-Chek and sent me home, telling me to prick my fingers for 10 days, and call them back on January 3rd with my results. The nurse said I should eat as usual in order to get real time results, and test when I wake up, and two hours after each meal.
Only one tiny, little problem.
IT'S THE HOLIDAYS!!!
I had a Christmas brunch this morning, and scored a 7,3 mmol/L. Their ideal result is <6,7... So while I'm not too high, I'm still higher than they want me to be...
How the heck do they think I'm going to pass this while celebrating Christmas and NYE? That, and now that SO's family knows about this, they're saying I'm not being careful enough and I should stop eating sugary foods altogether, therefore I will not be allowed cake OR cookies on the 25th and the 31st, or ever.
Now, I don't care much for their cakes anyways, and I can get my own if I want some, but geez, thanks for the support effort. I'm not stupid and I won't binge on "bad foods". Urgh...
Alright, I'm done. Off to look at the delicious cookies and donuts my mother makes every year.
