    Default do you think there's a link between gestational diabetes and morning sickness?

    I was diagnosed with GDM 2 days ago, and the more I think about how my ms affected me, the more I wonder if I had signs of GDM from the beginning...

    WDYT?

    I don't know but I don't think so...I had really bad MS in my first pregnancy - all the time till the end lost heaps of weight etc and then in this pregnancy (which is twins) I've just had a bit of dry wretching in the begining - nothing compared to last time and I didn't get GD either time.

    Possibly? If I let myself get hungry in pregnancy, my nausea would be 20 times worse. Compound that with blood sugar issues and it could quite possibly have impacted negatively.

    My mum had undiagnosed GD with 2 of her kids, and had hyperemesis with them both. We've theorised before that the GD is the reason, but of course, you can never really know...

    Nope. I had terrible MS all day until 14 weeks and didn't have GD.

    that's what made me wonder... last pg, it didn't really matter if I was hungry or not, I just seemed to throw up all the time, but this time the was noticably worse if it had been too long between meals of any description...

    of course, it's not something that anyone has researched, I was just wondering what personal experiences were...

    I'll let you know, lol.

    I had Hyperemesis and GD first time around.

    This time I still have Hyperemesis but I'm not vomitting as much and eating better. I just had my GTT this morning so we'll see!

    There is a train of thought that M/S can be made worse when blood sugars are low although I dont know if that has been proven.

    Why dont you try a poll to see how many pregnant women have suffered both and if they did, how severe their m/s was to see if there is a link? Would be interesting to find out!

    Morning sickness is a good sign, it means you have more pregnancy hormones doing their thing. Not that not having MS is a bad thing. I haven't seen any research linking the two.
