    Oh, sorry you got abnormal results but the main thing is that they are on the case and will treat you fine.

    Oh poor you. I'm waiting for my results - should get them tomorrow.
    Don't panic about things too much. You'll get used to the finger prick thing and just think - at least it has been caught now BEFORE yur baby gets chance to grow too big!!!
    Big :hug: hun. It'll all be fine in the end x x

    Dont panic too much... GD can actually be managed quite easily with diet. Te dieticians will be able to explain it to you...

    Alot of pregnant women tend to indulge on alot of carbs and bad sugars while pregnant, as well some fuites can be bad in excess too...

    Don't worry honey. :hugs: I have to finger prick 4times a day. It doesn't hurt and it's a good way of keeping a check on your diet. If you do need insulin, you might be able to have the orally administered one and as has been said, at least they've caught it now before realising at 38wks that babes too big and start prepping for c-section. :D
