    My fasting levels are the ones too which are hard to control. Mine are pretty much in the same range as IndigoJ. Mine slow release is now at 26 units overnight.

    All you girls are doing everything right and doing a great job. Its importent to remember its not our fault and to be kind to ourselves. X

    When I first got diagnosed, I thought this was annoying. So many people told me this and It didn't mean anything to me, I still blamed myself. After weeks and weeks of trying to adjust everything, and still getting high levels, it took a while to sink in. It really isn't my fault, and there is nothing I can do different to change my levels.

    So for anyone reading id really like to echo what Miados had said. It's not anything you are doing wrong, as frustrating as it is.

    My dp was really unsupportable to begin with, as was my mum. Only because they didn't understand what it was. Now that they do though they listen to my sooking about levels ect. Also my frustration and being upset with my levels had been replaced with anger that it's not being controlled!

    Hey Indigo, just popping in to say that with my last bub I was on the CTG's 3xweek from 35wks. I thought it was because bub was small but a lot of the other mums from my GD class were on regular monitoring too so I reckon it's just standard practice for the Base Got my GTT next week (will be 15wks), am hoping for a negative result but think it's probably positive!

    Must be standard then, thanks for clarifying that for me . I hate having to drive in to hospital so much! I have clinic tomorrow so I wonder if they will give me a ctg there. I have a growth scan, diab and anc. Not sure how they will fit it in.

    Good luck for you gtt, fingers crossed you don't have gd!

    Oh gosh. Can I just say ive just had my last middy, ob, and endo appoint yesterday, no more hospital appointments other than having her thursday that is. Feels so good girls. Ive already started stressing about my gtt in 6 weeks time though. Im not sure why. Think maybe cos this is my 2nd time with idgd. Thinking im doomed to get it later in life.

    According to scans bub is still tiny. My middy said she doesnt think over 3kg. Apparently im the poster child now for gd. My middy also said out of interest to anyone in the month of november they have only delivered 2 babies under 4kg! Its not a small hospital either they have 5000 births a year. I wonder how many of these ladies have gd?

    How big do you feel bub is?

    Wow! Only two under 4kg!! Diet has a lot to do with bubs size when you have gd, I wonder if that's why they are lowering the levels. That would include more people in the gd diagnosis, and make women easy healthier during pregnancy (not saying they need to).

    I know for me I ate crap with both my kids (less so with the second)and they were big. So I'm wondering whether a diagnosis of gd, and a healthier diet would have meant smaller babies for me. I'm interested to see what size this one is. If she is big it could be due to gd, or it could be that I just make big babies.

    These are my thoughts too. I ate crap with my daughter I didnt have gd with her. With ds I was a little better mainly cos I ate what dd did as I was sahm no access to junk like I did at work. But then once diagnosed with him at 26 weeks it all changed and I becsme super obsessed. Both dd and ds were considered above average. Dd was born at 41 weeks though so that explains her size. Ds was born at 38 weeks and his size was put down to gd. I feel im carrying really small with this one. Ive also hardly put on any weight compared to ds. So im guessing 2.8kg? But who knows. My bf was huge well over 100kg at birth at her bub was 2.8kg she put on over 40kg with no gd. My other bf put on 11kg and her bub was 4.2kg and she never even wore maternity clothes or had gd. So size of mum and weight gain has no bearing imo.

    But I dont why they've lowered the bsl levels. But healthy bubs is very important so its a good thing. But I think in general kids are getting bigger. My neices all tweenies are all bigger than me already. Granted im only 165cm tall but they are all a ladies 12 -14 as well. Im a standard 10. They are not unhealthy just big boned and solid.
