Im just needing some support and to support others that are in a similar position to me.
At my last appointment with midwife (last wed) she told me I had Gestational Diabetes even though a low reading of 5.6....
I had an early GTT (16weeks) as I'm predisposed to diabetes being in both sides of my family. I had the test 11th Jan and my antenatal appoint was 20th as I didn't hear anything I thought I was all clear until I went to appointment and she told me different. Firstly I was a bit stunned they wouldn't call to mention this information. Secondly... I am in doubt I really have GD as its such a low reading that really .... your blood goes up n down and yoyr going to be a bit higher than normal being preggers.
However I am taking this serious and I'm being very cautious with what I eat and ensuring I drink alot of water (which I already do) until the ring me to go to Diabetes course plus nutritionist. ... I mean what a pain really like its not already difficult with the hormones and the no alcohol thing lol
Anyways enough of my rant..... and seriously would love to chat to some peeps that might be in a similar or have been in this situation. I'm a bit anxious about it atm but trying to stay balanced and calmly cautious.
I thank you lovely ladies in advance.
