Sitting in Dr. B's office for 3.5 hours, getting my arm stuck IN THE SAME EXACT SPOT 4 times, and freezing my butt off (because, what a dummy, I didn't figure they'd have the AC turned on) wasn't exactly how I would have wanted to spend half a day.
So yeah, it was painful, boring, boring, and more boring.
Luckily, my cousin Casi showed up when I had about an hour to go (she was there for her 38 week check-up) so I had someone to talk to for a while. Plus, I got in a lot of good reading time - which I hardly ever get to do otherwise.
Turns out the results were good. Praise the Lord!
Not that anyone cares, but the numbers were as follows:
1st draw; 96(after fasting)
2nd draw; 183 (slightly high)
3rd draw; 141
4th draw; 53 (slightly low)
And these are the requirements:
|Fasting||95 mg/dl or lower|
|One hour||180 mg/dl or lower|
|Two hours||155 mg/dl or lower|
|Three hours||140 mg/dl or lower|
All in all, the doc says I pass w/flying colors. So... yay!
