Late Diagnosis Of Gestational Diabetes

(links marked * are affiliate links, for more info see disclaimer below post) Well: this gestational diabetes thing has thrown a right spanner in the old works, I can tell you! (Photo above taken in last pregnancy, by the way, after I had polished off two whole desserts. I thought it was brilliantly inappropriate.) I just feel as though Ive been diagnosed (my blood sugar readings, though not horrific, definitely indicate GD) and then left just to get on with things. No real advice, no explanations as to how the condition could affect the baby, or (more my concern) how my rampantly out-of-control blood sugar levels prior to diagnosis might have affected the baby So it has been a crazy week or so of intense Google research, and speaking to my Dad and Uncle about how they keep their Type 2 Diabetes in check, and chatting to my oldest friend Tasha about how she coped during her two pregnancies with her Type 1 Diabetes. Id like to say that it has all been very interesting, and it has to a certain extent, but overall my one word to describe the situation would be: STRESSFUL. Mainly, I think, because the diagnosis has been made so late. (Im 38 weeks.) And wouldnt have been madeat allhad Continue reading >>

    I am 35 weeks, diagnosed with GD at 26 weeks. Diet controlled until recently and now having only a small amount of insulin (4 units at night). Had sizing scan today. Sizing at 39 wks 4 days and weight 6lb 15 oz. Saw my Ob this arvo as well. He advised would be a big baby (no surprise I'm nearly 6 ft tall. What did surprise me was he said I would be induced early likely 38-39 weeks due to placental insufficiency. I'm little confused as to how they can tell this already, especially given that placental flow was good on today's scan.
    Just wondering if anyone in similar situation or can shed any light. My BSL's have been pretty stable right through except for morning fast's hence the insulin, however they werent super high. I really dont want to be induced if it can be avoided. This has been a long 10 yrs and IVF to conceive this bubs and I am torn between listening to the OB and following my own instincts. All advice greatly appreciated.

    They wont let you go over your due date with GD, as it's common for the placenta to fail towards the end.
    With DD I was induced 9 days early, but I had uncontrolled diabetes for much of the pregnancy due to my results getting lost in the system somehow, until a midwife chased it up.
    With DS I was induced on my due date. I do know it's very common for women with gd to be induced 2 weeks early.
    I'm praying for a spontaneous labour 2 weeks befere my due date this time around.
    It's not pleasant having gels inserted behind your cervix etc.
    Also the Dr's worry about baby getting too big, and putting too much weight on around the shoulders, which is why they're keen to get baby out.

    TBH I don't know the exact reasons for the why, but as soon as I was put onto insulin I was told that they would induce me at 38 weeks. It didn't even occur to me to question why.

Lack of sleep elevates insulin and makes you store fat. And impossible to burn fat. www.ultimatestressreductionprogram.com Insulin promotes fat storage and inhibits muscle burning of fat. It also makes your body produce cholesterol. Worse still, elevated insulin is related to four major cancers; breast cancer, prostate cancer, colon cancer and skin cancer. Research has show that in every animal tested, when the body can not control blood sugar and insulin it results in accelerated again, early death and many other factors that lead to a lower quality of life. Simply put, to lose weight you need to sleep better.

Late Diagnosis Of Gestational Diabetes At 35w - So Frustrated By Lack Of Support/information12

Had a late GTT at 35 weeks (MW only just noticed I have PCOS and my 2nd DC was 9lbs 13), my levels 2hrs post drink were 8.3 so a diagnosis of GD was made. Have got two DCs, had two very straightforward homebirths with no problems- DC2 was a 2.5hr labour and 9lbs 13oz (no issues with pushing him out or shoulder dystocia etc). My issue is this, I have been given no info about what to do because apparently as I am 35weeks and 'nothing can be done bar a fasting test 6 weeks post birth'. No referral to a dietician or consultant etc. I've scared myself silly by scouring the internet for info re: higher risk of stillbirth, pre eclampsia etc etc Have put myself on a no sugar/GI diet as that seems to be the recommended course of action. says birth shopuld be ok if levels well maintained but I have not been asked to check levels thus have no idea if they will be maintained!!! With regards to the birth I have a serious health anxiety/emetophobia/hospital phobia hence choosing HBs previously so this is a massive deal for me. I noted that the like to induce between 38 and 40weeks but hell will freeze over before I go down the induction route (cascade of intervention and higher likelhood of a c Continue reading >>

35 Week Scare - Gestational Diabetes - The Honest Motherthe Honest Mother

I recently had my 35 week appointment with the midwife. The appointment was going really well until she measured bump and plotted it on the graph and put a cross above the 95thCentile. I have always measured along the 50th, so this started to raise some concern. Baby had put a lot of weight on since my last appointment. Now I know that I had over indulged over Easter and my weakness has been chocolate during this pregnancy. Had I made my baby overweight with the amount I have consumed? I was told I would have to go for a glucose test for Gestational diabetes. If it came back positive I wouldnt be able to do a water birth or go to a midwife led centre, I would be under a consultant and back at the hospital where I had Jessica. I really didnt want this. I went away feeling deflated, worried and upset I really didnt need this blip to make me feel uneasy, especially at 35 weeks. I had an emergency appointment made for me the next morning which lasted for two hours and I hadnt been allowed to eat anything from 9pm the night before. I had to give blood from my arm at 9am, 10am and 11am. The first of the three tests I had to drink what felt like a gallon of Lucozade; three cups in total. Continue reading >>
