    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 ;-)

Also, I have to say, I felt fantastic on a low carb diet. Probably the best I've felt in 15 years!
    Thanks honey thats reassuring. Starting today I've got to check my levels 6 times a day and keep a record along with a food diary.

    @Chyna i also had another friend with gest. diabetes and she followed all the instructions diet etc...for about a month and glucose levels went back to normal so she was able to stop taking bloods and just kept up the diet- so it 'fixed' things for the rest of her pregnancy. xox

    @Chyna that's a bugger about the diabetes but like lots of the other ladies have said it is really common and can be managed with no probs. Just annoying for you that you have to test and change your diet. At least your used to following instructions after Wazza's array of things you have to do! You'll handle it with no problems at all!
