It is most definitely sweet relief to know that I passed the three hour GTT.
I guess my numbers looked great, in fact, my fasting glucose level was so low that the nurse actually told me to make sure that I am including carbs in all of my meals and snacks so that I don't have problems with dizziness or fatigue.
The iron is still really low and so I will have a recheck next Monday. If the levels have not risen, it's iron infusion time for me. But the good news with low iron levels is that they are really common in pregnancy and the baby gets the iron that he needs from my body. I am the only one that will feel the affects of low iron, not him.
I did ask why I failed the 1-hour and she said it was likely because I hadn't fasted before (their directions). I think that they should just make people fast for the 1-hour, because really, the three hour isn't a lot of fun. If they could weed out even half of the people from unnecessarily taking the second test, I think that would be worth it.
