I continued to get high blood sugar readings over the weekend. Not outrageously high, but considering normal readings for me are very low, and the readings I was getting were above the guidelines my doctor told me to look for (140 at 1 hour after meals, 120 at 2 hours), I went ahead and called. They didn’t want to move my test up, saying something about how they can’t screen for diabetes before 28 weeks (which is complete nonsense, but anyway); however, they’re calling in orders for me to see the diabetes management group at Seton to get a diet, and they’re giving me an “official” testing schedule for me to track for them. So they’re going to treat me like I’ve already failed a screen, even though they won’t give me a screen and from the way they talk they think I’m insane. However, it doesn’t do any harm to treat myself as though I already have it, and if I am already diabetic then it certainly could help.

I’m so frustrated, though. So what if I am being paranoid. I’m having triplets, and there are so many extra things that can go wrong that I think I’m entitled to be paranoid!
