The Results Are In!…

24 Jun

I had to call the hospital this morning to check if my 28 week full blood count has been done (it hasn’t…so I get the joys of ANOTHER needle today. Hoo-bloody-rah) and the midwife had told me to ask for the results of my Glucose Tolerance Test while I was at it.

My fasting blood sugar was 4.6 and my level 2 hours after the glucose was 5.9, so both were actually quite low compared to the table in my advice leaflet…


Considering that I have a family history of diabetes (Dad and maternal grandfather) AND that I have a BMI of over 30 at the moment (I think it’s about 31) this is a great result. I’m really pleased as it means that I am still eligible to use a birth centre (*fingers crossed* I stay within the other requirements too) and that I have one less thing threatening the health of our little one.

Hooray! Let’s celebrate with some cake!

    My baby has the opposite of diabetes, too much insulin causing low blood sugar and 4.6 is a very good result, by her standards 🙂
    I ‘passed’ by recent GTT but didn’t get a breakdown of results like that, however a couple of weeks ago, I felt so dizzy and faint I checked my blood sugars, simply because we have a glucometer to hand and they were 3.5!!! Totally shocked by this. This would be hypo for my daughter but told it was ok for me. Anyway, the dizzy spell turned out to be low iron in this pregnancy!
    Anyway, enjoyed reading this post! 🙂 😊 xx

      Thank you for commenting 😀 glad to hear you passed you GTT and that you have a result for your dizziness…at least low iron can be fixed easily with some “yummy” floradix (how I hate that stuff!).
      Good luck for the rest of your pregnancy and lots of happy thoughts for you and both of your babies!! Xxx

        Thank you! Yep, true enough a couple of iron tablets do the trick 👌 and likewise, good luck with the rest of your pregnancy 🙂 x
