glucose challenge!

Last Friday, Dave and I met with our clinic midwife, and I did the glucose challenge test. I was paranoid about this going into it, but it all turned out fine in the end. My glucose levels are well within the normal range. I had been restricting white flower and sugar for the week before the test, and loading up on high protein foods like seitan. It was pretty unlikely that I would be diagnosed with gestational diabetes, but I had heard so many horror stories from friends and acquaintances (again with the horror stories, what's that all about?) that I was nervous about it. I'm glad to check one more thing off the worry list.
