Avatar f tn When i was pregnant with him i developed gestational diabetes. When i went to my 6 week check up they did blood work and said my blood work was normal. Since then i have noticed i bruise out of no where and any nick or cut i get takes weeks to heal. Im tired all the time. I am on Birth control but thats it. I take over the counter NSAIDS once in awhile for headaches. I also notice i dont drink that much but i constantly pee... and large amounts.

Avatar f tn You will be screened for gestational diabetes as part of your prenatal care. While gestational diabetes does cause some difficulties during pregnancy, it can successfully be managed and you can still have a healthy normal pregnancy. Good luck.
Avatar n tn In general you don't really need to worry about gestational diabetes since, according to the American Diabetes Association, only about 4% of pregnant women are diagnosed with gestational diabetes during their pregnancy. If you do develop gestational diabetes however, don't panic, but do work with your doctor to make sure you're taking good care of yourself and follow the guidelines given.
Avatar f tn So today I got tested for gestational diabetes(which was hell) and my blood sugar was 160 and it should be under 140 and I am so scared... Im only 12 weeks pregnant...
Avatar f tn Does anyone know how gestational diabetes effects the baby ? Im 28 weeks and my son is already a pound over weight ... and dr said he will most likely be early.
Avatar f tn Today And they Gave me my Glucose Tolarence Test Results, and it looks like I Have Gestational Diabetes (GD). It's Been Very Hard To Keep A Great Diet In This pregnancy. Does anyone else have GD and are having a Hard Time with this? I'm 27 weeks. With My last pregnancy I did so good didn't gain any weight, and with this pregnancy I've already gained almost 20lbs.
Avatar f tn There is high risk for the baby if u go past 40weeks. I can't remember the exact issues that happen. Bit I do remember rachyrou talking about it. For you babies sake they induce.
Avatar f tn You are correct. Having gestational diabetes increases the risk to develop type 2 diabetes later in life. Diabetes is a complex condition caused by genetic and environmental factors. Like all common diseases, there are many risk factors for diabetes. Rarely is one factor alone responsible for causing the disease. Your total risk is made up several different risk factors which include family history, genetic risks, weight, physical activity, history of gestational diabetes, and diet.
Avatar n tn I was recently diagnosed with Hep C and now my doctor is telling me I have gestational diabetes. Is this because of the HCV? Do I even have gestational diabetes? Or does it just seem like I have it? Please help me.
4322328 tn?1354001638 who has gestational diabetes like me? im 30weeks. can you give me some advice on what to eat that will not shoot up my sugar.
Avatar f tn It's not too late to take the test, but you want to do it asap ... That way if you have it, you can get it taken care of. By the way, there are no symptoms of gestational diabetes, so you won't know till you test. You can be 100% healthy looking and 100% healthy/normal feeling and still be diagnosed with it.
Avatar f tn Just got diagnosed with gestational diabetes this afternoon. Any helpful hints or suggestions?
183933 tn?1290220562 She usually does get gestational diabetes when she is nearing the end of her second trimester. She is now 7 1/2 weeks pregnant and is already getting diabetes. It started around 5 1/2 weeks. Around that time she tested her blood sugar levels at home and her numbers were around 280. I know for about a week they were pretty high, centering around that number. Now she is 7 1/2 weeks along and her numbers are around 125. That is all controlled from her diet.
Avatar f tn just a word of advice it is important to take care of yourself while having the gestational diabetes because if you don't your baby can put on a lot of weight and you will have to start taking shots. Ya you can eat junk food every once in a great while but don't try to make it a regular thing even if your craving it. I know a few people who didn't care what the diettion said and they had a 12 pound baby.
Avatar f tn I have gestational diabetes and was put on a diet and also insulin. Doctor didn't want me taking pills to control it. I check my levels 4 times a day and take insulin 4 times a day. They are small dosage but it helps the baby maintain her levels. She is measuring slightly bigger than her age. Best part is I see her often with ultrasounds. All in all nothing to be afraid about. We as mothers will do what we have to do to take care of our bodies for our unborn. Hope this helps.
Avatar f tn I'm very healthy and have no diabetes at all in my family and I was diagnosed with GD. Gestational diabetes doesn't have anything to do with how you eat (mostly). The reason women only have GD during pregnancy is because the placenta can't produce sugars properly so once we give birth and get rid of the placenta most women don't continue to have. If you do happen to get GD most women can control it with a cleaner diet and don't need insulin.
Avatar f tn Just found out I have gestational diabetes I'm 29 weeks and terrified has anyone had it at this stage and did you have a healthy full term baby?
Avatar f tn hi i just got diagnosed with gestational diabetes and am 29wks today. I wondered if others have it and how it is impacting your pregnancy?
Avatar f tn I had gestational diabetes with my first and Dr's seem to think I had it before I got pregnant with my second. I have been checking my sugars since about 12 weeks 4 times a day and am now 27 weeks and haven't gained weight due to altering my eating habits. They gave me my glucose test sooner just to be sure and it came back positive. As long as you take care of yourself and eat healthy you should be ok if you come back positive for your test.
5609181 tn?1375335972 My doctor just called to tell me that I have gestational diabetes... I didn't really get a chance to ask questions and stuff because I just started crying and she said we could talk about it more at my next appointment in a few days. So can anyone tell me more about it please? I feel like such a failure to my baby...
Avatar m tn I was diagnosed as having Borderline Gestational Diabetes (others have refered to it as Impared Fasting and Glucose Intolerance.) I, essentially, failed the three hour Glucose Tolerance Test by only one point (my fasting was 96 instead of 95.) For percautionary measures, my OB had me monitor my blood sugar (with normal diet/excercise) for one week.
1088509 tn?1352239847 the baby measuring big doesnt necessarily mean gestational diabetes... it could be but not always... babys grow at their own pace, some bigger some smaller... theyll probably take blood nd test yu fur it if they havent already... my aunt had it wen she was pregnant nd it went away after she had my cusin! nd he was born fine...
5549102 tn?1376526273 What week does the gestational diabetes test take place? I don't remember. I'm not looking forward to it either. I haven't been to the doctor in 9 weeks I'm already scared I'm going to be fussed at, but I have a legitimate reason. I haven't had the money for the appointments every time I've scheduled them. Something always seems to come up. I feel my little man kicking around everyday and I did have an ultrasound so I know he's okay.
