....the one that ended with some bummer news.
Despite having a really great weekend overall, my day off yesterday started with bad news. On Sunday morning I got an email saying my results from my glucose test were online so I opened it and read the notes that said "Your test results were within normal limits. We look forward to seeing you at your next appointment"--sweet, right? Until the call Monday morning telling me that not only did I NOT pass, but I failed so hard core that I automatically have gestational diabetes. To say I was shocked (and subsequently pretty effing upset) would be an understatement. So, no 3 hour test for me to re-do everything, I automatically am going to the hospital tomorrow for a 2.5 hours class on how to manage this.
I would say I'd be more surprised if I ate like crap regularly, but I don't. I've been eating well, and exercising regularly. So, yesterday was just a huge emotional bummer, wrapping my head around something being "wrong"...and digesting the fact that I'm back to more needles and other things that I felt so far away from the start of this whole journey. I'm thankful that it's manageable and it's nothing life threatening, but it's still super disappointing and discouraging.
Anyway, moving on....let's talk about the happy stuff that happened this weekend:
~Friday night I met up after work with 3 girl friends (and fellow SLP's) for dinner--Mexican of course! It was so great to catch up with everyone, laugh, share work stories and just enjoy each other (and I was even healthy and split the whole enchilada meal with my friend! #screwyouGestationalDiabetes)
~Saturday morning we took Coop to get groomed at his regular groomer who did an amazing job, unlike the other one who charged $80 and did nothing but give him a jacked up haircut. He even got a cute Valentine's themed bandana
~Made a run to Costco to stock up on all things bulk-item. Saturday mornings in your 30's, guys what can I say? lol
~Went for an afternoon walk because the weather was in the lower 70s and absolutely gorgeous!
~That night we met up with friends for dinner--I had salmon--the tiniest portion you've ever seen of salmon--and finished up with dessert of a root beer float which was heavenly (I'll be living vicariously through this picture for the next few months)
Our other friends with a 4 month old met up with us too since they were in town, and we got some fun baby time in, which is always a win!
~I wore a new top I'd just gotten earlier this week, and showed off the baby bump (thank you Motherhood Maternity!)
~Sunday morning we ran errands and then my mom came by. We had lunch at Yard House and ate outside because it was awesome weather out, especially for mid February!
~We attempted to watch The Girl on the Train but it was a little too raunchy and all over the place, so we stopped about an hour in and I told my mom and MG what happens at the end #timesaver
~My mom headed home around 4 and MG and I went for another walk because days like this there's no excuse to be inside
~We made dinner at home, relaxed for the night, and I got a lot of time with The Nightingale
~Monday morning MG went to golf with his friends and I spent the morning engrossed in The Nightingale until I got the call from my doctor's office which derailed the rest of my morning and early afternoon.
Once MG got home, we talked about the GD situation (he gave LOTS of comforting to my upset self haha), he did some research (because my SIL told me not to look stuff up and get overwhelmed) and then we went for another walk around the lake by our house.
So, despite the kind of crappy ending to the long weekend, it was still a lot of fun, and filled with good stuff. I know this GD is just a bump in the road....something "extra" to deal with, but I'm thankful for the support system I have, and that I'll have more information come tomorrow morning and a better plan in place. If you had GD, feel free to reach out and let me know--I'd love to pick your brain if I need to, or get overwhelmed, etc!
Hoping your weekend was fun-filled, and without bad news from a doctor's office haha.
