So last week I was told that I have GD, after ringing the hospital with my levels this morning (I have not seen the dietician yet) they said that they want to put me on insulin. I am devastated. All I can think is that it is my fault for being overweight and old (40). I am 29 w 4d and have had a reasonably good pregnancy. My fundal measurement is always right on, I also have put on absolutely no weight. In actual fact I am lighter now then what I as at the beginning of this pregnancy. So I found it very distressing that this has happened. When they rang me back this morning I had to swallow back tears as I as with a client, but now I just want to curl up in a ball and hide from the world. I am embarrassed and ashamed about this. I know that is irrational but I can't help it.
