Still nerdy after all these years

If you've been reading this blog for awhile, you may remember when I was pregnant with Mattias, I checked my own BG during my gestational diabetes test.

If you haven't been reading this blog for awhile... Yes I did. I'm a nerd like that.  And like I said in that post, you gotta take the perks of having a kid with type 1 where you can find them.

The result halfway through? Here ya go.  Anything above 140 at the end of the hour is a fail.

And here's the final result:

Looks like my pancreas kicked that orange goo's ASS!  Winning!


  1. Your so cool...not nerdy at all! xoxo

  2. Too funny! That ooey goo made me SO sick the first time that I refused to do it the second time around...(before my dx) if I only knew!! Hooray for 119!

  3. Yay for no gestational diabetes! I would have totally checked my BG, too. I'm proud to be a nerd, too. :)

  4. Good for you!!! I have my glucose screening coming up, we'll see how it goes!

  5. I did not know you could opt out... I just wasted an entire morning while both my kids were in school! So not cool!

  6. Not nerdy at all! I have wondered what the bg's are supposed to be during and after the test. We check ourselves at home all the time. Doesn't it kind of make you feel bad that your pancreas works so well...wish we could share that with our kids?!

  7. Hate that orange drink and I didn't know I could opt out either, but my mom did have GD with both of her pregnancies so I figured I'd get it too, I didn't, and on another rambling note, I had all my prengnacies before D, and I think that my dr's actually did a blood draw and not a finger prick with my glucose tolerance tests. I would have totally preferred a dang finger prick! I hate needles! They actually make me kind of nasueous. I almost threw up when I had to do Kortnie's first shot. Yeah, I'm used to giving her shots now, but I still have to close my eyes and not see the needle when I have my own shots or blood draws. Now that's kind of dorky, isn't ti?
