    No ideas. Ive seen kids with allergies like that from medication. But not insulin. But really thats all it can be with you. Is it completely localized?

    Hi Ladies... I have been reading all the discussions about GD. I just wanted to tell you my experience. My boy is now 6.5 months and I had it with him (I pretty much had no chance of not getting it with both parents type 2 diabetes - diet controlled though). Anyways with my GTT results they wanted me to go straight to insulin 4 x per day. I broke down and decided to go against it (please don't read that I am condoning going against medical professionals, this was a decision I made based on my own instincts). I thought it was a bit rough not even letting me try diet controlled. So over a few days I monitored my levels after every meal and fasting, I watched what I ate and I did it! I was down to good levels. I did this by following a good diet, knowing my triggers and then a walk at night after dinner. By 38 weeks I was put on metformin because they wanted my morning levels under 5 and they were always 5 apparently that wasn't good enough. So my tips would be to try to exercise I walked of a night i and did yoga up until 39 weeks. Also a really high protein snack before bed really helped, something like crackers and cheese or nuts. It was horrible, I hated having GD but I was determined to get through it. I now have a gorgeous 6.5 month old and we are both healthy and he was a healthy 3.5 kilo natural birth (induced though). Good luck ladies and sorry for the spiel! x

    It will be interesting to see what it is and how they plan to treat it.

    I'm scared they are going to say either put up with it, or there is nothing they can do and baby has to come out. It has been one thing after another. It's wearing me down. It's only a skin reaction, it's not affecting my breathing or anything, it's just really itchy.

    I think first off they may change where you inject or put you on a different type of insulin perhaps.

    I hope so. But if I'm reacting here, I will probably react elsewhere too? Im pretty sure its the protaphane that's doing it.

    Indigo what size needles are you using? I was told to inject in the side/love handle.. All educators are so different!

    I got bruised the first time but that'd because I was rough. I'm on 5's ATM.. I wonder if a smaller finer needle would help?

    You most likely will. But they may want to try as a process of eliminating it.
