Hah, I'm not sure what the Carotene even is ?!
Thanks for the info gals. I didn't think I was at risk for gestational diabetes. I don't fall under any of the risk factors.

The bleeding is totally normal! There is so much blood down there and everything is swollen! Its very normal to bleed after an internal exam even without a PAP!

I'd ask your OB about the Carotene, but the glucose could mean you are diabetic while pg. It will show up in your urine tests before you take the glucose test. That's how I was able to talk myself out of having the glucose test with my third baby. I had no presigns of GD. The glucose test makes me soooo sick as I have no tolerance for sugar while pg! Oddly I process sugars just fine according to the tests, but have no tolerance for them!

She may have said Creatine? She didn't elaborate on anything?
That strange that you can't tolerate the sugar. Sometimes I feel so gross that I will crave sugar. Once I take a sip of juice, or like a bit of anything sweet, I feel better.

Bleeding after an exam is normal.....and not fun! I have had that happen to me 3 times.
The others I never had issues with so I can't help you there.
I hope the bleeding stops soon for you and everything else get figured out!

ALOT of women get gestational diabetes so don't worry that its anything abnormal with you. Its just something that happens and needs to be monitored.
