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 ;-)
    Thanks honey, bet we are the best looking geriatric's around lol. Its probably a good thing as it will ensure i eat healthy no matter what xx

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!
