Gestational Diabetes - 26 week check up

Monday i went back to the doctor to take my 3 hour glucose test, drank my glucola and almost immediately felt sick... sick to my stomach and a little light headed, and i have noticed if eat sugary things without anything else i feel the same way... i did that with Tre too but i didn't know that's what it was until NOW! My sister, the great sister that she is came and sat with me for the 4 hours we had to sit there... and we talked and played who wants to be a millionaire and looked at gossip magazines and talked about her going to college and her boyfriend and my work and pretty much everything! lol it was fun hanging out with her even tho i felt GROSS but it made the time go by much faster.
ANYWAYS i got the results back today at my 26 week check up and of course i failed the glucose screen so i have to go visit the damn endocrinologist - i am so not looking forward to this and everyone keeps saying it's only a couple of months blah blah blah but who knows if this time the diabetes will actually GO AWAY. i don't usually have pity parties... but i am having one right now... i can't help but think how unfair this all is that i am predisposed to have diabetes and i am the healthiest person i know... aside from my friend les who eats right and exercises and doesn't put chemicals in her body... yet I AM THE ONE who has to deal with this shit. UGHH
i have an appointment Friday at 315...

On a more positive note:
Here is what is going on with the ever developing Kaylin - per
"The network of nerves in your baby's ears is better
and more sensitive than before. He may
now be able to hear both your voice and your partner's as you chat with each
other. He's inhaling and exhaling small amounts of amniotic fluid, which is
essential for the development of his lungs. These so-called breathing movements
are also good practice for when he's born and takes that first gulp of air. And
he's continuing to put on
baby fat. He now weighs about a pound
and two-thirds and measures 14 inches (
an English hothouse cucumber) from
head to heel. If you're having a boy, his testicles are beginning to descend
into his scrotum — a trip that will take two to three days."

My doctor says other than the gestational diabetes the pregnancy looks great, my weight gain, blood pressure etc. all PERFECT and where they should be. They are going to do another ultra sound at 32 weeks to see what the placenta previa looks like but he isn't really worried about it because it wasn't fully covering the cervix during my 20 week ultra sound. so there ya have it...

im depressed. :o(
