7181824 tn?1388973896 Three Days I Haven't Had My Glucose Test Yet Because I'm In The Process Of Moving And Have To Switch Doctors I Was Just Wondering The Symptoms For Gestational Diabetes .
162279 tn?1270604959 So I am just wondering if anyone knows if its possible to develop G.D. later than 28 weeks in a pregnancy? When I was tested with this baby at 28 weeks I was way in the clear. So I hadnt worried about it. But lately people are telling me that I look HUGE. I just do NOT want my poor baby to go thru what Jameson had to go thru.
Avatar f tn What are the symptoms and signs? How early does it show in your pregnancy? I've looked up in prenatal books and sites and all the answers vary. I'm just wondering from someone who has actually had it, what your experience was.
Avatar f tn So after my blood test I have learned I have gestational diabetes. 3rd pregnancy, & I didn't have it with my first two, nor before this pregnancy. Not over weight, we we are clean eater's and don't eat out. Crazy how something like this can put a dab of stress On things. My OB said more than likely it will go away after birth. Still yet. I have to geat a ultrasound twice a week for the rest of my pregnancy, on top of seeing my Dr every other week .
Avatar f tn I'm 33 weeks and have gestational diabetes...frequent urinating is a sign of diabetes and pregnancy... I'm on a low dosage of meds that i take before bed. My sugar levels are now under control because of the meds, exercise, and diet. I've even dropped a few pounds... I have family history of diabetes but, i didn't have it before pregnancy...
231441 tn?1333896366 At least you will know how your body is tolerating high levels of sugar in your blood, early in your pregnancy. Obviously this OB/GYN is a cautious doctor who wants to make sure that everything in your pregnancy is perfect. Gestational diabetes doesn't just make for large babies. It can make for very sick babies. You certainly don't want that. My daughter had to use insulin through 2 of her three pregnancies and did just fine. Her last baby was 9 pds. 9 ozs. Best of luck to you.
Avatar f tn Well I don't have gestational diabetes but i have type 1 and my doctor s told me to stay between 100 amd 150 or 70 to 160 low sugar u feel sweaty shaky some times hungry and sometimes sleepy high u feel tired thirsty have to pee alot and I kno its hard to figure out which are pregnancy symptoms and which ones are the diabetes cause inhad a hard time figuring out which were which but just try to learn your body more and be careful with high sugars
Avatar f tn When do they check for gestational diabetes? Im 22 weeks now. Wont be going back to my doctor until over 6 months. I had an episode the other day in the grocery where I was shaky and light headed. It felt like my sugar had dropped. I get much better after I ate. But my doctor hasn't even mentioned the test yet. When Did you all have your test done?
Avatar f tn So I have feeling that I could have gestational diabetes. I use to eat healthy but then I got into coca cola Pepsi chocolate crisps and other bad food... i was reading about the signs and have all of them (well don't have trush) so was wondering if I get into healthy eating right away into I have chance to get Ok before baby comes? I'm 33 weeks and really would like to have water birth so need to be Ok before baby comes!!
97615 tn?1212682189 I have just recently been diagnosed w/ gestational diabetes. I know its only temporary but I have some questions while I am dealing w/ this. My heart goes out to all that have it. Although it runs in my family and I watch my grandma taking care of it I never realized how serious it can be and how hard to maintain til it came to be my illness. I am having trouble w/ the eating part.
Avatar f tn It runs in my family, and I'm shaky and fainting if I don't eat after any exertion or two hourly. Does gestational diabetes have similar symptoms to normal type 2???
Avatar f tn i am interested in any feedback with the gestational diabetes... my first pregnancy i tested negative for GD. my second pregnancy i failed the test and had to do the 3 hour one and it came back negative. this pregnancy i tested around week 27 and failed so i did the three hour and it came back negative. around week 30/31 i went in for my weekly check and they always test my urine and this time there was a large amount of sugar showing up in the urine.
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?
11970398 tn?1443138202 Does anyone on here have the diabetes u get just during pregnancy? If u do when did they start? And what were some of the symptoms?
Avatar n tn Many folks with Type 2, or with borderline diabetes, can avoid symptoms by taking those steps. I'm not sure if there are ways to avoid Gestational Diabetes, but physicians who specialize in high risk pregnancies should likely be consulted. Good luck.
Avatar f tn In most cases of true Gestational Diabetes it is gone as soon as the placenta is expelled, it is related to hormonesthat cause your cells to be insulin resistant For some women, they still have diabetic symptoms even after the baby (placenta) is born, but most of them are thought to probably have had undetected Type 2 (rarely Type 1) Diabetes even before they were pregnant..
Avatar f tn My baby's dad is a borderline diabetic, it runs in his family, and hypoglycemia and diabetes runs in my side of the family... Help and advice please!!!
Avatar n tn and preexisting diabetes is a lot different from gestational diabetes, i.e. it's more dangerous than the latter. it could cause fetal anomalies. so strict surveillance and blood sugar control are needed.
Avatar f tn It is a mandatory test to make sure you don't have gestational diabetes. Gestational diabetes is diabetes DURING pregnancy. Some women can also develop diabetes after pregnancy if they have GD. It is important to test for this because it can also lead to other problems and complications if you have it and do not deal with it. It's a very simple test. You drink a sugary glucose drink. After an hour they will draw your blood.
Avatar n tn His weight was due to the gestational diabetes. Now on to this pregnancy. I am currently 36 weeks 4 days. I again had to take the 1 hour glucose test, failed and again took and failed the 3 hour test. We tried for a few weeks to control my blood sugar levels with diet alone but found that my levels were rising no matter what I did. As of Friday I am now on insulin. I have to give myself an injection of insulin 4 times a day as well as still be on the "diet".
1527830 tn?1329412166 Ok so I have had gestational diabetes with both of my previous pregnancies and had insulin with my last one and also with this one. The issue that I am having though is that no matter how much the doctor increases my insulin my levels are not going down. The past 2 weeks have been horrible, I have been taking 24 units of insulin before breakfast and when I go to check my sugars I am close to 200 if not slightly above it.
Avatar n tn Yes because I'm pregnant and my 1- hour test was not good. I tried to take the three hour glucose test but vomitted the mix.
Avatar f tn Yes, haha I go no pregnancy symptoms at all and my fiance was always running to the bathroom in the a.m or craving the weirdest foods.
3057436 tn?1359318238 How do you no if you have gestational diabetes? Are there any signs or way or knowing like does sugar effect you in anyway?
Avatar f tn Google "gestational diabetes" for information. You will learn if you have it at a certain point in your pregnancy because they will test you for it.
Avatar f tn I'm aware of the risk for developing diabetes after having it during pregnancy, and in the past weeks have noticed some of the symptoms that i had such as dry mouth, excessive thirst, more frequent urination, headache, extreme fatigue and also i'm not sure if it's related but sharp pains in my lower abdominal area that are a regular occurrence.
Avatar m tn Hi, Controlling the blood sugar in pregnancy is very important. Target blood sugars in pregnancy are in the range of 70 - 120. I got put on insulin very early in my last pregnancy and was on it the entire pregnancy. I am now trying to get pregnant again and seeing my blood sugars have been higher than they should am now on insulin again. I believe your doctor is very wrong by not taking immediate action.
Avatar f tn I'm 19 weeks and did my 3 hour glucose yesterday so I still don't know if I have gestational diabetes. I know my blood pressure is slightly elevated. So maybe twice a week I will get weak and shakey and my arms feel heavy like after you hold a baby too long.....idk if this has to do with my blood pressure or blood sugar. I didn't have OJ so I drank a little soda it didn't help. Laid down to relax a little, didn't help. Had to go pick up my 10 year olds, started to have hot flashes.
