Mmmmm Chinese food

DH took the day off today (to work on the yard mostly), so we got some Chinese food. If you're in the US, then you know US Chinese food= sugary sauces.
I got shrimp w/ broccoli, pork fried rice, & a small hot & sour soup.

Tore up the soup. MAN it's so good. I've never put those crunchie noodles in my soups so that wasn't a temptation or anything.

Ate all of the shrimp w/ broccoli and had like 2 or 3 small spoons of the rice. Not much b/c it wasn't that good lol.

We'll see what my sugar is later though. I don't think the hot & sour soup is anything to worry about, but the sauce w/ the shrimp... that worries me. We'll see... we'll see.

Man... I hate being on my feet now. It gets SO frickin uncomfortable and there's nothing I can do except sit down to relieve the aching.
I dunno if it's just how she's laying in there or what, but my bump gets this really heavy heavy feeling. It's actually a mildish feeling but leaves me feeling SO uncomfortable it's not funny.
And then, I think b/c she's kinda low, her head? is pressing on something down there and that starts to ache really bad.

While I would do this over again in a heartbeat w/ added symptoms or whatever b/c it's worth it... yeah, not all bits about pregnancy are fun.

Late night EDIT:

Lunch sugar was great at 92. WOO!

Dinner sugar on the other hand.... yikes.
I've been REALLY wanting a hamburger, so DH complied and we went to 5 Guys hamburger joint.
Got myself a big hamburger which probably wasn't the problem, and of course, if you've ever been to this place, you know they give you a TON of fries. They put some in a cup, and then scoop even more in to the bag.
Well, I had WAY too many fries apparently. I also had some blackberries after too which aren't terrible, but combined with the fries and the bun... my sugar was 137. YIKES.
I'm sure we'll have hamburgers again one day, but no fries for me. *nodnod*
Should've known better, but I let my craving get the better of me.

Hey Lisa

Glad you got what you were wanting- have been following you for ages- did you have any symptoms of the GD?? im starting to worry about myself - havent called the obgyn yet- as its only been a few days and im only 19 wks tomorrow (light headed, crazy thirsty and kinda nauseous all the time) was just curious :D

Marly- The day before my 1hr glucose test, I got dizzy and was left feeling off for the rest of the day and most of the next day too.
But really, other than that, I didn't have any GD symptoms as far as I know. I didn't have any kind of swelling, no other dizzy spells, nada.
I can't really say if I was more thirsty or not since I've been trying to drink more water anyway.
I'd call your doc and just voice your concern.
Hopefully the symptoms you're having are just crazy hormones related and nothing more :)
