Mostly i'm writing this as a vent but advice would be appreciated.
Wednesday i went for the glucose tolerance test & rang late this afternoon to be told i need to be retested. Now i didn't really take that in so didn't ask why.
I'd fasted, felt like crap & it turns out have really low iron. Could that affect the test?
Also they didn't do the blood test until 1 hour after i drank the syrup & with water drank that morning & during the hour had a full bladder. Could that affect the test?
In my first pregnacy they took blood as a starting point then i drank the syrup waited an hour & had more blood to compare the 2 and there was no fasting (or problems with iron levels). Is that usually how it's done?
The reason i rang about the results was the iron thing I was even lower before we conceived & then normal. But i had it tested again as i've been feeling crap, not put on weight and bruised after bloodtest.
SO i had a feeling iron was low, was correct & am back on iron supplement(one that is safe during pregnancy).
But there is this nagging thought of Why do they need to re test sugar?
Thank you very much for reading my rant & apoligies it's so long.
