Today I received a call to tell me that after having the 2 hr OGTT last week I have Gestational Diabetes....in a little bit of shock as this is my 5th baby and it has always come back fine.
I will be meeting with the Diabetes Educator some time in the next 7 days (waiting on an appointment ) so all I know is what I have read on Dr Google. 😯 I was hoping those of you who have been through this can tell me what I am in for? Obviously I will gave to change my eating habits and from what I can gather I will be testing my BGL a few times a day but what about appointments....are there many more compared to normal antenatal care? How do you feel when your BGL are high? Anything else or any tips for me?
This is really stressing me out as I was already high risk due to Adenomyosis, Age, weight and a previous shoulder Dystocia birth! It's all becoming just too hard and I am feeling very overwhelmed by this pregnancy and trying to juggle everytime (I work part-time, have 4 kids and all the activities etc that come with that so life is busy enough without adding extra 😕
