    Default Diagnosed with Gestational Diabetes

    Feeling pretty down. I feel like my body just isn't made to gestate. Last pregnancy I got severe pre-eclampsia and had to deliver at 34 weeks now I'm 26 weeks and diagnosed with GD with a bub that's gone from 30th percentile to 90th percentile for Abdominal Circumference.

    Someone also told me that GD increases my risk of getting PE again. I'm not sure if with my already increased risk, that's still the case. I'll ask my OB the next time I see him. My biggest fear is getting PE again and being separated from bub at birth. Last time I had to go to ASCU while DS went to SCN and I didn't get to meet him for 18 hours. Even if bub isn't early because of the GD there's a fair chance they'll have to go to the nursery. I need to be well enough to go with them!

    It's all just too much. No point to this post, just feeling down and wanted to vent.

    No words of advice but I'm sending big hugs.
