i received a call from hospital yesterday. the O&G nurse told me that the GTT (glucose tolerance test) i took the other day shows that my blood glucose level is slightly higher (8.6mmol/l) than normal (8mmol/l). i have gestational diabetes.
i must say that it was a shocking news, but i should had be ready for that because it runs in the family. my late grandmom was a diabetic. even my dad had planned his meal after my grandmom passed away. but if i look it from the other perspective, sepatutnya aku bersyukur aku tau aku ni potential diabetic later when i reach the menopausal period.
i missed the GTT during my first pregnancy. most likely i had gestational diabetes that time which explained my increased weight gain instead of decreased appetite, air ketuban sikit, and adam’s prolonged jaundice.
the nurse asked me to see the doctor as soon as possible, so he could advise on the diet. smlm aku mkn pizza, but i left the coke. teringat my FIL almost pengsan when he drank a full glass of coke.
so today jumpa la dia, i took MC. lagipun kepala aku letih duk menghadap auditor smlm. baru pre-audit pun dah pening. nnt in late june, mmg kitorg satu kilang muntah darah nak menghadap auditor from jpn tu. sometimes i just wish kenapa la dia tak nak audit masa aku duk amik maternity leave? hahahha
kena tunggu sejam lebih sbb doktor ada emergency c-sect surgery. sementara tunggu tu, i went for breakfast with my brother and aizec. first time, i ordered ‘teh tarik kurang manis’ and roti canai sekeping (shj). asal dpt alas perut ok lah. nnt kalau lapar sgt kang, pengsan plak kat klinik. dah tu ajek tak pegi klinik sama sbb dia ada keje kat tmpt lain.
my gynae advise la mcm2. he said i should not be worry. kena monitor blood glucose level hari2. he tought me how to use the glucose meter. the idea of pricking myself is tak best. sbb masa kat skolah dulu mcm nak pengsan prick diri sendiri time bio. hahaha.. rupanya2 tak pakai mcm ‘org kerajaan punya needle prick’ la. 😛 ada spring so aku tak pyh susah2 nak tutup mata ketakutan nak cucuk bg kluar darah. hahahha
so from now on, i shall behave myself for the sake of my baby. i will try not to eat to much. less carb, less sugar. i should have a meal plan mcm nih.
ohh musim durian.
ini gadget baru aku. terasa cool plak. hahahha
