Well, I've been a good girl...sort of. I had a big to do list...and managed to do 2 things off of it. Heh. I called and made an appointment with the doctor for next week for my blood pressure. Thankfully, they had an opening on Monday...which is the same as my WIC appointment, so only one trip to Seattle. Yay me!
The next call I made was to Bryan, about Saturday. A group of us are going to dinner to celebrate my birthday. Unfortunately, he's not feeling well, so isn't sure he'll be able to make it. He said he'd let me know Thursday or Friday. Disappointing, but understandable. I hope he feels better. It was nice to just talk to him for a little bit anyway...I really do need to keep in touch with him more often.
On a far less happy note....I'm worried about my blood sugar. There's been a few times this week where its spiked, and I've had nothing to eat. I'll test the machine tonight and make sure its calibrated correctly. If it is, I'll talk to the midwife on Monday...it just doesn't seem right to be at 107 after my meal, then at 143 two hours later, when I've had nothing in between. As I don't know much about gestational diabetes, or any other form of diabetes, its entirely possible its normal.....but then again...
Oh...and I've remembered what the concern was with my blood pressure - preeclympsia. I think that's how its spelled. I'll look it up later and find some information on it...that way I'm aware too.

yes.. it will go up when you've had nothing to eat... what it is is that you're sugars are going too low that your brain causes your body to kick in and produce the sugars... it's a normal thing in diabetics.... so it sounds like in that time that you had a 107 it went down lower then your body wanted it to... hope it helps... this from the one who is diabetic 2 years now... i know EXACTLY what you're going thru... if ya need someone to talk to or rant to or whatever concerning that or anything else I'm here... *smile* *hugs*

Thank you :) I have a few other friends who are diabetic as well...and they've been a wonderful source of info. My current problem, is my blood sugar isn't supposed to be above 140..and I have no idea how to prevent it from spiking like that.

exercise is usually good a nice brisk walk helps...drinking lots of water is a way to cheat.. lol... other than that.. it's meds that help... which sux...

That's what I was afraid of. I don't really want any more meds added to the small array they already make me take :P
I need to do better at walking...but my sleep schedule is a little messed up. I've gotten used to Fenris' schedule, and he works 12 hour nights...lol.
