early 24 weeks

I failed my 1 hour glucose test. My level was too high that 2 more points I would've been directly referred to diabetes class. Anyway, this scared me. I have to go back for the fasting test on Friday. The 1 hour test is just screening and the 3 hour fasting glucose tolerance test will be the definitive diagnostic test.

So, I am trying to watch my carb intake. It is not easy especially for a rice-loving Filipino like me. I feel like the meal is not substantial without rice.

On another topic, my husband is really antsy on buying a crib. But I am still trying to hold off buying big ticketed items until maybe the 3rd trimester.

I think all Filipinos cannot live without rice! Hope things get back to normal with your health :)

Aside from having to lower your sugar levels, it looks like the pregnancy is going well:)

Hi Malor, yeah, do take care, diabetes is something you can do without at this point! I failed my first glucose test as well and had to retake it and I've been watching what I've been eating ever since ;) It's very hard to do though, esp when Toblerone bars start calling your name in the middle of the night...

Thanks to all of you.
Thanks Makis and Joanne.
Ruth, it is too late for me. I now, have a Gestational Diabetes.
Kala, I am the smae way, I just cannot do fasting at night for 8 to 10 hours, I have to eat some snacks in the middle of the night.
