@Gelati: Oh no. The blood glucose monitor is the prick-finger machine. Baby isn't big now but it can get out of control if GD isn't under controlled. I was told that GD will only get worse as the pregnancy goes on. Actually, I was just about to ask you ladies about the whooping cough vaccines. I was meant to ask OB about it today as well as the proper growth scan at an imaging place. I completely forgot because we were focus on the GD discussion. I can ask next week.
I heard that 32w is the ideal time. I actually had a boost + chicken pox vaccines in 2011 in a different country (free). They actually encouraged people to have it done before trying for a baby. Ha...it took us long enough to have a baby. The reason they encourage people to do it before pregnant is to avoid any side effect. I don't have any problem from the booster but i did have a reaction with chicken pox! I got the chicken pox vaccine because i have never had it in my life.
Do you know who give you a shot here in Australia? GP? At where i lived before, I went to a immunization dept and the nurse there did the shot for me.
@Minib: i actually only use basmati rice at home. I only eat jasmine rice when i have lunch at the chinese place. I don't eat much rice anymore after I started the diet. I somehow thought basmati is not good so i switched to brown rice at home. See....diet change doesn't seem to help preventing GD.
