No gestational diabetes for me!!! But the nurse did share that my hemoglobin levels are low so I need to start taking an iron supplement. This happened when I was pregnant with Gavin and I believe happens in about 80% of pregnant women. No big deal (at least at this point), just another pill.
I called to ask about my doctor appointment - if it really is okay to wait 3 weeks or if they should be every 2 weeks now that I am past 28 weeks. I learned that the young, new, nervous doctor was wrong, just as I thought, I do need to go every 2 weeks now until I hit 36 weeks, then I go once a week. My next appointment is now scheduled for Wednesday October 7, 2009 at 8:20 a.m. [silly doctor - good thing I called!]
