You know Murphy's law? It states "Anything that can go wrong will go wrong." If ever there were a law to define my life, that would be it! In my vlog above I mentioned how yesterday I took my glucose tolerance test (GTT) at my doctor's appointment. This test, to screen for gestational diabetes (GD), is a standard test all pregnant ladies have to take between 26 and 28 weeks.

This morning I got the dreaded phone call... I failed the one hour GTT test. Failing this test doesn't necessarily mean I have GD, but I do have to go in tomorrow for a three hour GTT test. Ugh. I really have this feeling that I have the dreaded GD. According to the Wikipedia entry on GD, not everyone has symptoms but for those that do, fatigue, nausea/vomiting, increased thirst and blurred vision have been documented (among a few other symptoms I've not experienced). Considering I've talked about all of those in past vlogs (three of the four in this week's alone!), I doubt I'll be passing the three hour test either.
Like I said, Murphy's Law! So not only am I dealing with this hypertension crap, I will now
I have to start fasting as of 8pm tonight, so I am going to be eating a very large dinner! Ant said he would take me out somewhere considering this could be my "last supper" for a while. Now I just gotta figure out what I want!
