Tomorrow I start day one of the "special" diet I have to be on for 3 days for my GTT on thursday. It's really not a diet per-say, more like they need you to eat alot of food and get enough calories in to see how your body processes sugar. Hmmm, 3 days of eating lots of good food...easiest diet I've ever been on! I think the hard part for me will be eating big breakfasts, as I never eat anything in the morning. For some reason when I do, I just end up feeling sick, but I'll get over it. I'm scared of the day of the test too, I have to fast 10 hours before, come in, down a huge thing of sugary water stuff in 5 minutes (blech), wait an hour, get my blood drawn, and then repeat two more times. I'd better bring a book.
Welcome! I'm Amy, a late 20 something Polish-Italian Catholic dealing with infertility. I married the love of my life on May 24th 2008 and we decided to start trying for children on June 24th 2008. It's been a hard road, but we have been finally blessed with a positive pregnancy test on June 19th 2010, almost exactly 2 years to the day we started trying. I don't always censor myself on this blog. Read what you like or none at all...but this is my story about my "Miracle in the Making".
