151154 tn?1208134182 I am 22 weeks and went to the doctors today and they told me I have an excess of fluid and thats usualy a sign of diabetes. I was 15 -20 lbs overweight to begin with and gaining weight quickly even though I'm probably not even eating as much as I should. I'm worried. What does this mean for the rest of my pregnancy or my baby??
Avatar f tn Yea its hard, very strict diet. I miscarried my first baby because i didnt have my diabetes in control. But i did.this time & im 12 weeks & the babys perfectly healthy.
Avatar f tn ( I have to pinch myself and check my blood 4 times a day and record it they give u a super strict eating diet and schedule tha u have to follow and eat at certain times. I cant wait till its over :( and the risk of having it for the baby is if u dont control the sugar ur baby can be born with pancrea problems thus leading to obesity. And for u oncebu get gestational diabetes theres a high risk of getting diabetesnin ur life later on so it really suckssss!!!!!
Avatar n tn My mom a is diabetic so they decided to test me earlier for gestational diabeties and it turns out im borderline. I have since then saw a dietician and changed my diet completely. My sugar levels are great and I have ended up loosing 20 lbs.I don't technically have it but im trying to avoid getting it.
Avatar n tn well got my diabetes results bk and it looks like ive got diabetes. waitin 2 speak 2 my midwife about what treatment they will give me. hopin it will b just a good diet, ive been told that sometimes thats enough 2 keep it under control.
Avatar f tn It's very normal. I have gestational diabetes and I've gained 12 pounds and I'm almost 36 weeks pregnant. If you're following your diet, that's why you're not gaining a ton of weight. Only be concerned if your doctor is.
Avatar n tn Salt causes high blood pressure though, which is not good either. Eat low on carbs, lots of veggies and no sugar in your diet. Usually with good diet gestational diabetes can be controlled. Take care.
Avatar f tn My doctor confirmed that I have gestational diabetes. I am 29 weeks and very upset. I didn't have to go through this with my first pregnancy. Not sure what to expect. I have additional testing and office visits. Does anyone have any experience that they can share in what to expect for the remainder if the pregnancy?
Avatar f tn It needs careful monitoring and close attention to diet but if properly controlled is not generally problematic. If it is uncontrolled then baby can grow significantly larger than average, causing possible problems with temperature regulation, elevated newborn blood sugar, and some other issues. It is very important to listen carefully to the doctor's instructions and follow them closely to make sure her gestational diabetes stays under control.
Avatar f tn Since being on the gd diet I haven't gained any weight. I'm 31 weeks and have been on the diet for 4 weeks. Is this normal?
Avatar f tn Then monitor how your body reacts and make sure to test your sugar in fasted state (morning on an empty stomach), and 2 hrs after each meal. I was diagnosed pre-pregnancy and after going paleo and working out, I am off all meds and my sugar readings are in the lower spectrum of normal non-diabetic range. I prefer paleo over atkins because it stresses the importance of eating clean, organic, hormone free, minimally processed foods.
Avatar f tn Hi I'm just wondering if anyone has diabetes and will share there story with me I'm 33+4 and my babys measuring 7lbs9 they think I have diabetes I'm worried about the birth and being induced x
Avatar f tn Been on my gd diet for 4 weeks and haven't gained and weight? I'm 31 weeks. Is this normal?
Avatar f tn Just wondering what causes pregnancy diabetes? and if your craving alot of sugary and sweet foods does that mean you have it or are on your way to getting it? And also if you do have it does that mean your baby has got it?
107860 tn?1302930340 I had to go back to the 3hr test and have my blood taken 4x. I now have gestational diabetest that I control w/ diet and check my blood sugar level 4x a day. My best advice would be stay away from sweets and high carbs. Moderate exercise such as walking is great for all moms. Drink plenty of water. I have 6 weeks to go and the first thing I am gonna eat is pizza!!!!
Avatar f tn There is a chance, but even if you do, your just on a diet for the rest of your pregnancy. Not usually a huge concern. But I do hear many people "fail" the one hour one and still end up not having it. So try not to stress, you might still be ok.
11970398 tn?1443138202 Around 26 weeks your doctor will order glucose tests and if you fail both then they'll put you on a diet and teach you to test your sugars. If that doesn't keep your numbers in check they'll put you either on insulin or a pill.
Avatar f tn I had a very hard time adjusting to a new diet. I got the hang of it and have really low numbers now. This is my third pregnancy and first time having GD.
215816 tn?1212494007 What other lab values would be indicative of possible diabetes? Little concern........and can it be controled?
Avatar f tn Sometimes pregnancy and hormones can make diabetes flare up and throw your sugars off. When you are high the baby is high. Extra careful diet will be required and maybe extra insulin. Lots of people have babies with Type II but it's how they manage the two that makes the difference.
521895 tn?1212597611 I'm not worried about GETTING pregnant, but I am a little worried about my brittle type 1 diabetes and the extreme swings - I go from high to low very quickly and vice versa - it's extremely difficult to stay in range even on a strict diet and insulin pump. When it comes time for me to get pregnant, what do I have to worry about? I'm most worried about seizures right now - will I be able to carry a baby if I'm prone to getting hypogylycemic related seizures? Thanks in advance.
Avatar m tn I'm a type 1 diabetic and have information about diabetes, but pregnancy and diabetes is not my strong point. I do know it is important to have tightly controlled blood sugars when pregnant and people diagnosed with gestational diabetes are usually put on insulin. There is a woman named Super_sally888 on this forum who knows a lot about this topic and if she signs on, she will respond I'm sure.
5009178 tn?1369957375 ) The reason I ask s because I am 7 weeks and as soon as I found out I was pregnant about a couple weeks ago I started drinking only water with milk sometimes but eating wise I tried my hardest to do better and it just makes me worry whenever I eat something I feel is bad I feel I am doing harm but then I think about all the other stuff some people do and their babies turn out just fine...
