I failed my glucose screening test. I took the test a couple of weeks ago and didn't hear back from my OB's office, so I thought that I had passed, cause they usually only call you if it's bad news. Today, I got a call from their office saying that I have failed the test and need to come in for the 3 hours glucose tolerance test.
For some reason this news has upset me a lot. I know failing the glucose screening test doesn't necessarily mean that I have Gestational Diabetes. Even if I did have GD, it can be controlled, managed, etc. But I'm still almost in tears. Maybe I'm overly emotional!
In addition, to my failure in the testing department, I had a flare up in a meeting at work earlier today that is bothering me. Usually, I'm level-headed at work and don't get too worked up about much, but today in a meeting, I got very upset when one of the other managers said something less than complementary about a member of my team. I could feel my face getting flushed as I was responding to him. I did my best to keep my words and tone level-headed, but my red face betrayed my true feelings. Afterward, my boss talked to me about it to see what had upset me and then the other manager came and talked to me and I tried to downplay it. I guess he was surprised that I got so upset, and now I feel bad that I will be written off as another hormone driven pregnant woman. I know I'm rambling, but you all know what I'm talking about, don't you?
