I passed!!! 117mg/dl! No need to go for the 3 hr screen!

I have to keep reminding myself that I shouldn't do at-home diagnosing. Different blood sugar meters behave quite differently, and I should know that. Hubby had been using one particular brand for a few months back in 2006, and he was consistently getting very off values (when comparing the meter reading to a veinipuncture reading when he got labs done). Diagnostics on the meter determined it was just fine - it was the chemistry used in the test strips that didn't work well with his own personal blood chemistry (it was consistently testing low by about 40%).

But who cares about all of that - I PASSED! I PASSED! I PASSED!

Now, to celebrate with something other than cake ;-)
