Pregnant after 35

I passed!

So I don't have GD. My numbers were (cutoff in parentheses):

Fasting: 83 (95)

One hour: 174 (180)

Two hours: 129 (155)

Three hours: 50 (140)

I don't know if that's "flying colors" or on the high side--guess my OB will tell me next week. Either way, lesson learned about being a little more careful than I have been. And with that 50, no wonder I practically collapsed once I got home -- ate 4 granola bars in a row and fell asleep! 

me - 41 (dx: DOR); DH - 53 (no problems); 7/18/09 - married!; 8/4/09 - BFP on first (real)try; 9/14/09 - missed m/c; 9/15/09 - d&c; 11/09 - 3/10 - 4 natural cycles = BFN; 4/10 - dx hyperthyroidism caused by Graves' disease; 6/10 - thyroidectomy; 7/10 - 12/10 - 1 natural and 5 medicated IUI cycles = BFN; 1/11 - new RE; dx low ovarian reserve (AMH .42; 1/26/11 -- BFP (ectopic) from IUI #6; methotrexate 2/10/11; 6/2/11 - IVF #1 = BFN; 9/12/11 - prescreening for DE; 9/15/11 - IUI #7 (unmedicated)= BFN; 11/8 - begin DE cycle (shared risk program); 12/5 - ER (5 eggs/4 mature/3 fertilized/2 left by day 5) 12/10 - ET of one 1BB blast (expanded, "fair" quality), none to freeze; 12/22 - totally shocked by +hpt; beta #1 = 413; #2 = 3952 2/14 - CVS reveals a healthy baby girl! EDD: 8/27/12 DD born 8/31/12, 10 lbs 10 oz and perfect in every way.

  • Oh my! that 50 was dangerously low! I wonder if they'll call you hypoglycemic instead?
  • Loading the player...
  • Yeah, I was just doing a little research -- and I am terrified in retrospect about how low I got. I am actually seriously pissed at the lab or whomever--since this can happen, they should insist that you can't leave unless you have someone to drive you. I drove myself and it wasn't far, but when I think about what could have happened....I probably have only myself to blame for not being more cautious, but nothing I read ahead of time suggested that I could be in real danger. I also felt fine right after the 3 hours, and ate some protein immediately -- which may well have saved my life for the 5-minute drive home!
