    Im 20 weeks and was diagnosed with GD about 13 weeks, I've seen a dietitian who seems happy with what Im eating. I have no symptoms at all, feel fine. Apparently for the glucose test my initial numbers were fine at like 4, but after the sugar drink, my second numbers were like 10.6 or something bad. I havent seen a diabetes educator, I live in a rural town and cant get in until June 5th.. which makes me think maybe GD isnt a huge problem until THIRD trimester??

    @ZeSarah thank you so much for creating this page !!

    Just to confirm we are meant to test 2 hours after eating ?
    @********** I just got diagnosed at 28 weeks and my normal was fine it was once I drank the sugar drink as well - similar to you .

    I think it’s best to control it now that you know about it to help your baby - I have felt mine move a lot more since I have stopped the sugar.

    Hi @********** I also didn’t have any signs of GD if anything I was feeling better then I had all pregnancy, so some times you can’t tell. For the baby high glucose levels turn into growth hormones so the more you have it under control the better it is for your baby no matter what stage you are at, the last thing you want is to have an over sized baby that needs to come out early.
    @Wantingpositive yes it’s two hours after you start eating so if you start dinner at 7pm then you test at 9pm that way it gives you a chance to eat and your body to process everything.
    As long as you don’t exceed 4 cups a day (tea has caffeine too) then you should be fine to have it any time, either without any sugar or a stiva. Also only a little bit of milk.
