"You do not meet the criteria!"

That is what the doctor just told me. So I don't meet them.. (who wants to meet them anyway??), which is to say............... I've passed!!! I don't have gestational diabetes :-)!
I did the test on Sunday, and oh that is one horrid test! While the 50g I drank more or less in one go and felt o.k and only had one hour to idle around, the 100g. was disgusting! and you have to drink it in 5 minutes. And then of course it's three hours to hang around. I did bring more than enough things to do (a book; a crossword/puzzle magazine; a card game; a rubik cube. Last two items remained in my bag..), but still. It was especially hard the first hour when I wasn't feeling too good (as time went by I felt better).
So did it and got it over with. And then there are the results.. In order to be considered GD, you need two of your "scores" to be higher than the scale. Now while my first number (the one before drinking) was even lower than the minimum for the scale, I had another number above the scale and another just on the verge (179 when 180 is over!). So I wasn't really sure what this meant.
So.. just talked to dr, who said the above ("You do not...") and explained that even my high score is not that high. So yay!! Of course it still means that I have to be careful! Maybe it's good I failed that first test as it gave me a wake up call :-).


And from happy to happier..
On Fri I go to this pupil and his mother opens the door. Now I haven't yet told anyone work-related about my pregnancy, waiting to see when it will be noticed. So the mother opens the door, she looks down at my belly and up again. What joy! :-)
And as I was writing this post, my sister who returned today from India (after being there almost two months. Missed her :-)), jumped by to say hello, and on looking at my belly remarked on how I've grown :-).
And to add to my happy note - three! yes that is three out of three bloggers whom I follow and who were in the two week wait just got a very Biggggg Fattttt Positive!!! One after the other they announced their great betas. Pure joy :-) !!

That must have been an amazing moment when that pupil's mom clocked your belly! And you must be so psyched to see your sister after her being away! Great news about the sugar levels! And thanks for the shout out - It's great to join the ranks of the pregnant ladies!

I'm happy to be seeing some BFP's around here too, now, if only I can see my own in 2 weeks...

I'm happy to hear all is going so well! Make sure you take pics of your belly. I forgot until the end and I love to look back at them. My daughter thinks the whole living in my belly is just facinating lol
