    Hemoglobin A1c test in first trimester

    Has anyone else had this blood test in their first trimester to assess for gestational diabetes? I had this test done at 7 weeks and my number was 5.7, just one tenth above the normal cut-off of 5.6. My Dr. diagnosed me with gestational diabetes already! I'm shocked and kinda freaked out! I'm in good shape, not overweight and eat pretty well, I think.

    It's a misconception to think that gd has anything to do with lifestyle. It's just something that happens. I had my a1c done at 10 weeks and diagnosed with gd at 13 weeks. Just had my a1c checked again today at 27 weeks. Hopefully I've done good :)
