can u test for gestational diabetes after 28 weeks?
I'm in a huge transition right now and have had to change doctors throughout my whole pregnancy due to my dh retiring from the military. I'm in my last and final transition and am 27+4..and I know I won't be able to be seen because my insurance is switching regions and that takes 5 business days.. so anyways, can u get an accurate result for the GD test past the 28 week mark? The test is important to me because of already being over weight, and having a family history of type 1 diabetes...any reply is helpful, thank u ladies!
yes you can im 28 weeks but my test isnt till next week. and i think with my first i was 30 or 31 weeks..they just like to know before this. altho from my understanding some drs wont do it if your past 28 weeks and there is no signs of having it. good luck--forgot to add if you want it done but there is no signs make sure you tell them you still want the test. its your right to protect you and your baby by getting it so i don't think they can tell you no.
They can do it pretty much thoughout ur whole pregnancy, however, most people tend to develope it when they start putting on the baby weight, and generally in the middle of the pregnancy. Thrus why its done in the middle around the 24-28 mark.
Yes you can still get it done. I took my one hour gtt at 28 weeks, and my three hour gtt at 30 weeks. Failed both unfortunately, but the sooner you do it the better. Then you can get on the right diet, exercise plan, and insulin/meds if needed. Can be very risky for the baby if you go too long.
