    Had a busy day yesterday with appts! Also went to my 1st appt at the mater! They were great! Going to have another long gtt test! As they don't think they got accurate reading as I hadn't eaten days leading up to it! M/s! Going Tuesday or Thursday next week! Going to stick to my menu plan set by my dietician! And see how it turns out when I see the mater again on 1 April !!

    Yes the diet plan set out in the days leading up to the GTT is very important as failure to eat enough carbs could have given a false positive. Good luck next time round!

    I agree will wanna be above.
    Usually gd starts happening after 20 weeks. So I would say this test was just to see if you were a diabetic before. And they will do another one at 28 weeks.
    But if you stick with heathy diet you should pass the next one

    Actually it depends on the lab doing the test. Where I work patients don't have to follow a diet.

    Yes, my dr classed it as having diabetes before pregnancy, but days 3 to be exact leading up to the test I had eaten two meals! I have now spoken to the dietician, diabetic educator, & yesterday to the ob, they believe I do not have diabetes weather that is GD or not, my levels on the 2nd test were very low!! I will have to have another gtt at 28 weeks! Which I expected!

    Joalisha, that's such great news that you don't have it! I was diagnosed with GD at 10 weeks (now at 16 weeks) and dr tested early because I had high BP. Dr did a secondary blood test to see if I had diabetes beforehand but that came back as a "no".

    Personally, I've actually the GD diet tricky. I normally eat pretty well but am not used to eating so many carbs and it feels quite unnatural to me. The Mater Health and Wellness team were really helpful. Unfortunately diet alone hasn't been enough so I take insulin 4 times a day as well. Hoping to get dosages right soon...it's an ongoing saga.

    Hope you stay GD free as your pregnancy progresses!

    Hi cat. You don't have to have the 45 grams of carbs per meal, you just have to stay under that. Unless they have told you otherwise

    Kazza, I'm usually having around 2 serves (30g) per meal. I started off on 3-4 for main meals and 2-3 for snacks and it was just too much. BG levels are better since I dropped back but that's still more carbs than I'm used to having.

    I'll get there. I'm being admitted to hospital on Sun evening for a couple days so that dr can tinker with my insulin doses a bit more to get them right. I've been feeling pretty unwell and have had a couple of hypos when my insulin doses were higher. But seem to be doing better or lower carbs and lower insulin.
