After about 10 days worth of procrastination, I did my blood-glucose test today.
Which entailed drinking 50 ml of glucose in under five minutes. As someone who hasn't had anything resembling 50 ml of glucose in so long, I was anticipating problems. I wasn't sure I'd even be able to keep it down.
It wasn't as bad as I thought. Part of me was tempted to try to "game" the test. That is, go for a brisk walk after I drank it or something. Then, I got smarter and realized that if I am having blood sugar issues, which do run in my family and have always been at least a little problem for me during pregnancy, that it is better to know about it and handle it than to end up with a complication.
So I put my big-girl pants on and sucked it up. Literally.
I felt fine afterward, and that's a good sign.
