Failed!

Dammit! I failed my 1 hour GTT so I have to have a 2 hour GTT. The doc said not to be concerned as 9/10 women that fail their 1 hour test pass their 2 hour test. Also I have a small hernia below my left ribs so I have to go in for an ultrasound next week. So I'll get to see Rupert again which is good.

Brent - it's not a good idea to diet during pregnancy if you're already underweight. Being overweight my doc is encouraging me to lose weight or at least stay the same. The baby will get all that he needs from the mum no matter what the mum is eating.

Off to the gym tonight for a swim. Can't wait! Back is a bit stiff today.

Have a good Thursday everyone!

Oh bugger I have done three 2 hour GTT tests this pregnancy and they aren't fun but the last one I actually slept for most of the two hour wait (they had a recliner chair) hehehe

Hopefully it will be all clear - not long to go now anyway :-)

Did I miss something? What is a one or two hour GTT?

Good luck with your next test babe.

It is the glucose tolerance test - they normally do a one hour test for normal pregnancies but if you are more at risk or something comes back abnormal they make you do the two hour one (you fast from the night before, they draw blood then drink the gross drink, then you have to rest and move as little as possible for two hours and then they take some more blood) and hey presto the two hour GTT
