GD Test Today
I have my GD test today, which stands for gestational diabetes (for those of you who haven't been pregnant before!). I am not looking forward to it. At this point, I could care less if I pass the test, I'm more concerned about passing out when they take my blood. Granted, I would like to pass the test, but I'm not sure all of the factors they measure (including how much the baby weighs) actually "prove" you have GD. I was just under 10.5 pounds, and my mom did not have GD, I was just a big baby. Thankfully our nurse mid-wife is phenomenal and really supports us in our strive to have a natural and medicine free pregnancy and birth, thank God!
