gestational diabetes

posted 1 decade 6 years ago

does anyone know much about this? I havent googled it yet, but been feeling really tired and shaky (im 7 weeks) checked my BP at work, it was normal, so checked my blood sugar, it was 3.9...which is low..however id had a good breakfast only 2 and half hours before...ive read stuff like dont eat for two as you dont need that many extra calories, ive been eating regularly and decent foods too...or maybe its just my body adjusting with the pregnancy and being on nights last week probably hasnt helped, maybe im just paranoid.....any thoughts or advice gratefully recieved... sorry for babbling on... xx Suspect

Ive a strong family history of diabeties and my mother had gestational diabeties with me, then went on to have it for life - so im having a GTT (glucose tolerance test) at 28 weeks pregnant, which is when they do them.
Your doctor will need to refer you to have this done.

Also i dont think it can be done earlier than this either.

GOod luck
