    Hi ladies! Today i was diagnosed with gestational diabetes at 30 weeks Ive noticed that i get lightheaded and dizzy at work and im not sure if it has to do with my blood sugar levels.. in addition to that, im just exhausted all the time. i dont think sitting for 8 hours straight at work is helping me out either... is it reasonable to ask my OB to put me on sick leave until the baby arrives? Is anyone else experiencing this as well? Thanks in advance your input u wonderful ladies!

    Are you tracking your blood sugar yet, and been advised on an appropriate diet? You may find that managing the condition will mean you don't have to leave work. However, if you feel like you need the time off while you get everything under control, you have a good case for doing so.

    I am allowed to take 20 week days, prior to my due date, off from work. Since being diagnosed, that would mean I could leave work on June 10th with a due date of July 8th. My dr. recommended working right until the end of the school year (June 19th). He told me that being active will help keep my blood sugars in check, and a sedentary/bed-rest type of mentality will increase my chances of induction with a higher risk of c section. You mentioned that you sit 8 hours a day... do you have to sit? Can you stand and move your legs or take frequent walking breaks? I don't know the severity of your GD, or if you need insulin or what not, but lightheaded and dizzy is usually indicative of a low blood sugar as opposed to high. Once you get your diet in check, and your levels figured out, you shouldn't be experiencing any funny feelings anymore.
