Thoughts on my GD diagnosis

I have a link here which will open an excel file... it's my Blood Glucose Levels chart.

This is my 3rd day now charting my BGLs, and to be frank I don't think there is anything wrong with them. All I've done is stop drinking cola and eating jelly babies.

The gist of it so far is that they are all normal... they are all within the ranges I have been given.

I really really really don't think I have GD. I have posted the link to my chart of my preg forum and chatted to some other ladies who have GD and they also say that my readings look pretty normal and suggested I ask to be re-tested.

In a few days time I have my growth scan (Tuesday) and on Wednesday I'm back at the GD Clinic with my BGLs and my scan results. I'm really hoping that - even though it's Jack's birthday on Sunday and I'll be eating cake - I'll be able to go to that clinic with Squiggles (please please please) normal growth measurements and my normal BGLs and say "I think someone made a mistake... please re-test me!"

I'm not really knocking the NHS, or my hospital. It was a mental rushed day at the delivery suite when I went for my GTT and I would rather they looked at my results and said "bring her in" when there's nothing wrong with me than the other way round. And it's not like I'm taking any medication at the moment, I'm just monitoring, so no harm is being done. I'm just miffed because I'm worried this will all become "reasons" for me being sectioned / induced when I just want to be left alone!!!

Romance

Now, we don't really do Romance, Yorkie and I. We're not the sort of couple that goes to posh restraunts, buy hearts and flowers on a whim etc, but last night we had a really sweet night. We didn't really do much that was classically romantic, it was the mood, the feeling in the air, if you know what I mean....?

I cooked us steaks for tea, which is always a winner for Yorkie (his second fav after anything pork) and had the candles lit in the front room. Not that I was going for a romantic atmosphere, I just like to have candles lit on cold dark nights.

We snuggled up on the settee together, watching nothing much on telly, all warm and cozy under a blanket, with the cat curled up o us. We'd been talking a little bit about the wedding and stuff, and about what my doc had said to me about what to do before we start a family. Yorkie's eyes went all soft and sweet, he was hugging me close and saying all the right kind of sweet thinks that I love to hear.

It was one of thos…

Tom's 1st Jujitsu Grading

It's that time of year again! Jack and Tom have been preparing for their grading since September. Jack is used to the whole process now, but for Tom it was the first time. This time we were taking Jack's friend Rory with us - he goes to a different school but does jujitsu with the same club.

Tom was trying for his first belt which is white. Rory was going for orange, and Jack was going for blue.

As usual parents can't stay to watch, so after dropping the three of them off I went for a wander to get some steps in for my own fitness (and a coffee and mince pie) with Freddie. In the freezing cold and bitter wind of Morecambe in December! Lucky old Hubby and Georgie stayed at home in the warm! Freddie didn't rate it at all - if he wasn't still 100% a boobie baby I wouldn't have dragged him out in it and left him home in the warm too.

When I got back to the school and queued up to get in and watch the belts be awarded I wound up chatting with another mum. We got on…

Tom wanted a go at cooking this week. And beef kofta curry was his choice! Big helping hand from mum but he worked had and we had fun singing in the kitchen while we cooked. This "teaching life skills" is alright you know
