I'm so sorry Heyside 😥
I'm so sorry Heyside 😥
Just got a call from my ob and I failed my blood test on Friday meaning I've got Gestational diabeties 😢 Am in shock as I eat pretty healthy. He want me to come in today to see him.
Thanks ladies for your thoughts, we are going to have a month out before deciding what to do from here and meeting with Warren to discuss things.
I had GD with my daughter, Chyna. It was a shock at first but In fact it was pretty easy to manage and had no impact on the baby. Don't feel bad in anyway about having GD. It's to do with the placenta and not too much about how well you have been eating.
Sorry, a bit more to add.... Controlling my GD was easy and I had fab support from my Obs. Yes, you have to monitor the amount of carbs you eat and prick you finger a few times a day but once you get into the swing of things you'll find it very doable. Also, I have to say, I felt fantastic on a low carb diet. Probably the best I've felt in 15 years!
'Goodies' to give away...
Hi ladies I'm 28 weeks with my little wazza miracle, so I'm cleaning out the drug stores!
I've got the following to give away:
-Menopur 1200iu x 3 boxes (all have been fully refrigerated the entire time).
-Cetrotide 250 x 4 boxes
-Synarel (one unopened spray never used)
-nitro dur (nearly 1 full packet)
-75 iu Luveris X1
-orgalutran x 2 syringes
-6 progesterone pessaries & applicators.
- provera 100mg x 3 sheets
- progynova 2 mg x 2 sheets
Let me know if anyone wants these, they just need to be collected from Camp Hill. I'll hold onto for 1 month then dispose of if no takers.
You could always give them back to Wazza if you have no takers. I often do that, then he can give them to someone else 😃
@Chyna my sister Inlaw is the healthiest person ever and she has it too. Her dr said it was to do win her placenta over night that it wasn't food related. Don't beat your self up about it. Plus they keep lowering the level of what is pass.
Chyna Hello lovely dont beat yourself up about it, the healthiest woman i have ever met, e.g. does triathlons, is nothing but muscle and sinew, no fat on her at all, doesnt even eat fruit coz its got too much sugar- she eats veges instead, never drinks or smokes, eats porridge with water and was horrified to hear i have my porridge with milk, doesnt eat takeaway or processed food, doesnt eat anything over 10% sugar etc etc etc got gestational diabetes, so its not due to you or anything you have or havent done. It can be managed with low g i diet and is really common in 'geriatric' pregnancies, i.e. over 35 years of age- no offence lol, im geriatric too by those standards! Its no harm to baby either as long as you do what drs say for management. Enjoy your low g i diet mate ;-)
