27 Weeks - Glucose Tolerance Test

Glucose Breakfast
On October 1st I had my dreaded glucose tolerance test to find out if I have gestational diabetes. Rather than drinking the nasty "juice" many offices force on their patients, I simply had to consume 2 pieces of toast, two eggs, four ounces of unsweetened juice and eight ounces of milk within ten minutes. Way better than the overly-sweet junk, but still a challenge as I do not scarf my food down by nature (I know, I know, that will change). 

Results are in. "Normal" results are between 60 and 140 milligrams of glucose per deciliter of blood plasma. My results showed 84 milligrams - well within the normal range. Yay!
