Fail!

So, I failed my 1 hour glucose test...by 3 measley points.  The cutoff high is 140...my score was 143.  So, Tuesday morning, like a trooper, I am going to go and take my 3 hour test, and pray that I pass.  I have to fast for 8-14 hours before the test.  I normally eat dinner around 6 p.m. and hit the ground at 5 a.m. and am already hungry.  My test starts at 7, which means I won't be done til 10!  By 10 a.m., I have typically eaten breakfast AND a snack...I'm going to be so grumpy because I'll be hungry....but, it's okay!

I have to say that when I found out I failed my glucose test on Thursday, I really struggled with it.  I even told Adam that night that I haven't ever failed a test.  I was always the person that did great on tests and I passed my driving test the first time...but this is one of those tests that I can't control the outcome, and it is what it is.

I still struggle with not being able to control the outcome...even after going through everything I have in the last 14 months.

I just need to learn to let go of that wanting to control things...but, it is so much easier said than done!

Note:  I have changed how comments pop up - I don't require the word verification and it will pop up a new window.  I know I am having some problems commenting on some people's blogs right now (if I am on my computer), and I have been notified that others are having problems commenting on mine also.  I hope this fixes it for the time-being.

I failed the 1 hour, too...also by only 3 points. But I ended up passing the 3 hour no problem and that was after I had oreos for dessert the night before (my Dr told me to carb load the 48 hours before my test!). Luckily, I was able to drink water in between blood draws so that helped with the hunger pains. Hopefully it won't be a terrible experience for you. I just kept telling myself, "it's ok, I am just happy that I am pregnant enough to even need this test!"

Good luck and I will be thinking of you!

I also failed my 1 hour test with Ethan. But I passed the 3 hour test. If it was only by 3 points, I feel good about you passing it. I know it's hard, and the thought of going that long without food sucks. Take a good book with you and maybe even a friend.
I will be thinking of you during that day.

Relinquishing control is a bugger isn't it? Hoping the test goes well this time. Thinking of you!

I failed the 1 hour by just a couple points with Olivia, then rocked the 3 hour test. I hope that's the same for you!!!
