I FAILED the glucose test. You have to be below 139 and I scored a 141. So next week, I will be spending another day at the clinic for a 3 hr test. I have to show up at 8:30, get a blood draw, then drink and have my blood drawn ever hour, for three hours, afterward. I am thrilled let me tell you!! And this time I do have to fast for 12-14 hrs before hand, the only thing I am allowed is water. I think this will be the worst part of it because I am always hungry!
I also got more info on my u/s. The information that they gave me is a choroid plexus cyst which I described on the previous post. The other thing that was found is prominent bilateral renal pelvices. To my understanding this is enlarged kidneys. The normal range is up to 4mm, and the baby's were 5mm. So it is a slight enlargement, the info I can find it is more common in baby boys. There is not a lot of info out there about this that I can understand. It is supposedly another "soft marker" for downs, but I don't know what is true and what isn't' anymore. So much of the information out there is 10 years old, which doesn't reassure the accuracy since I have found a lot of conflicting information. My doctor this morning wasn't overly concerned. As she stated, she can't tell me not to worry because there is risks, but in most cases she has seen, it has turned out to be nothing. That is great news, but any mother would worry. She did go over the rest of the test results which all seemed to be normal. In fact we were in the 80th percentile or above in everything but leg size. The leg size was in the 50th percentile, which is still normal. That is all I know for now.
I wish I could say I am more at ease, but I am not. I do know there is nothing I can do until next week so it doesn't pay to work myself up. I am just trying to keep my mind busy. I just wish it was Monday already.
