@Nic01:  Sometimes it’s something fairly benign. e.g. When this happened to me, the issue was slightly high cholesterol. Which needs to be addressed, but isn’t a life changer. But then I’m past pregnancy age, getting near menopause. Anyway I hope it’s something similarly minor for you. <3

I’m going to start pff with easier said than done but try to relax. It could be something minor that they want to discuss with you or it’s something but with intervention could be fine. Deep breaths and positive thoughts your way.

I know it’s difficult but try not to worry too much, it could be nothing! They might even just have a policy that for TTC appointments they always talk it over in person regardless of results. And as far as glucose goes, to get an accurate gauge on that it would require an actual glucose test, once you get pregnant you’ll have one about 2/3 of the way in, and it involves a very sugary drink. I’m assuming they didn’t do that since I’ve never heard of it happening at a pre-TTC appointment. But without doing the drink it’s super hard to get a feel for whether or not your glucose is an actual issue because it can be affected and vary greatly based on many factors (which the website you linked to pretty much says.) They might just say you need more potassium and to eat some bananas, you never know! But I’d stay away from google…it is NOT your friend in medical situations and will usually just freak you out with the worst case scenario.

@Wonderstruck:  I agree! OP, step away from the internet & stay away. It will be good practise for when you are blessed. I googled every twitch at the beginning of my pregnancy and it drove me bananas & led me to worry needlessly about my bump.

I do totally get why you are nervous though, these situations are quite stressful.  Its hard but take a deep breath and remind yourself how strong you are and that you will do all you can to ensure your health and health of a future LO.

Think positive and remember doc offices usually release no info other than in person.

Good luck and keep us posted.

This exact thing happened to me last week. When they called to tell me to come in and discuss my results I burst into tears at work. Really unprofessional 🙁


They said to come in asap so I arrived at 8am in the freezing cold to line up and hear my (expected) fate. I always had a feeling I would have trouble concieving (like many other women)


I get in the room and she tells me my red blood cells are enlarged and my thyroid is sluggish so I need new tests to confirm a few minor things. Oh and my ovarian reserve is super duper so the fertility thing? Yah I’m all good. 


I cried with relief when I left the clinic.


Fingers crossed you will have the same results 🙂
