I passed!

February 9, 2010

I passed my test today with flying colors. No gestational diabetes for me. Which is good, because I have noticed that my sugar levels have increased substantially over the last few weeks, in the form of chocolate, mostly (which does have those healthy little antioxidants…) So if I had diabetes, I probably would have flown off my rocker already. I would like to blame this on my co-workers who have started bringing it in to share, but I think, sadly, it is me who is unwrapping and eating each piece.

People really complain about this test, but I didn’t think it was too bad. I think my first alcoholic beverage burning and causing a fit of coughs was much more unpleasant (and then sat on the table untouched for the rest of the night.) This was just like drinking flat, sugary 7-up. Then, onto the doctor to get blood drawn. I have been told by many a phlebotomist that I have great veins so, again, no big deal. It took less than the 5 minute time limit I had to drink the syrup.

To celebrate, I think I might have a little piece of chocolate.
