    Default Gestational diabetes test with a cold/sinus??

    Hi ladies,
    I was going to go in for my GD test on Monday. But I have come down with a horrid cold/sinus infection. Should I wait til I feel 100%? Will it affect my levels?
    Thanks

    I have GD and a recent flu definitely affected my levels.

    Being sick can definitely throw your levels out. You won't need to wait until you're 100% better, if you mostly feel good by Monday then you can still get it done, otherwise put it off for a couple more days.

    Yep, leave it for a few days if you can. When you're sick it does affect your levels. I have GD as well and I've had a funny tummy the last few days - it's certainly had an impact on my sugar levels too.

    Thanks ladies, I will see how I feel on Monday, of course it is about the only day for a while that DH can look after the other munchkins for me.
