Re : Any at-home urine testing experts here?

I have to test ketones because of GD. I was explained that when your body starts using your stores for fuel (not getting enough calories, etc) your ketones are raised. They want me as a GD pregnancy to have negative. I always do this for the first urine of the morning.

From modified to strict bedrest

<t>I am 33 weeks tomorrow and was placed on strict bedrest yesterday. My mom is staying with us for the duration since we have nobody close in the area to help out to keep me off my feet. For 2 days my BP has been up (I am chronic) to 150-160/98-104. They upped my labatalol(sp?) by 100mg twice a day...

Re : Reality Check and good news....maybe long

<t>Well, we picked up a few more things this weekend and have a list of things to buy next weekend. My husband also got some significant packing done last weekend for the move at the end of July. I think I am starting to relax again as I see progress. And of course the fact that my mom arrives tomor...

Reality Check and good news....maybe long

<t>I had my appointment on Thursday. I am currently (today) at 31+2 weeks. Have dealt with high BPs since week 8 (or so) and GD since 2 weeks ago. My daily morning dips have been trace protein but it is getting harder to decide between trace and 1+ (at first it was a more obvious choice which it was...

Re : Failed the 1 hour GTT..... just venting a little.

<t>Thanks for all the supportive comments. I let myself have a pity party yesterday (hormones I am sure contributed) but the really good cry was very useful. I felt 100 times better this morning and know that I can get through it.<br/> <br/> It seems that Amelia is more popular than I thought......b...

Re : Failed the 1 hour GTT..... just venting a little.

<t>Well, I just got back from the endocrinologist. They gave me a specific diet to follow and I will be testing 4 times a day. Good thing they have me off work as I think I will be spending all of my day taking my blood pressure, dipping my urine (for multiple things), checking my blood sugar levels...

Re : Failed the 1 hour GTT..... just venting a little.

<t>Well.....I failed the 2 of the 4 blood draws for my 3 hour GTT. They have scheduled me with the endocrinologist for Friday. I shouldn't need insulin (should be able to control with diet). Mostly just bummed at this point. I feel like it has been one thing after another. I don't know yet if I will...

Re : Failed the 1 hour GTT..... just venting a little.

<t>Well, had the 3 hour this morning. Now we just have to wait. I check my protein every morning and the dip I have is glucose as well. I have never had any bad readings in the morning so I am hoping I pass. I just don't want to deal with one more thing. I will let you know when I get the results.</t>

Re : Failed the 1 hour GTT..... just venting a little.

So I guess I should hope for a miserable morning. I just hope that they can get the blood out of me when they need to!!!

Failed the 1 hour GTT..... just venting a little.

<t>So tomorrow I will be 29 weeks. I have been on modified bedrest since 26 weeks due to high BPs and excessive swelling (all which has been helped since the bedrest). In addition I have had issues with colitis and sciatica.<br/> <br/> So I get the phone call yesterday that I have to go back in tomo...
