    Turns out my sugars are so high that they don't even feel the need for me to do the Glucose Tolerance Test, that I definitely have Gestational Diabetes.

    This is freaking me out! I'm trying to find out stuff on it. My ob/gyn said I have to start a diabetic diet ASAP, and that I need to go to a diabetic councellor in the next few days to help me learn how to manage with this.

    :cry::cry::cry::cry:

    I'm really scared, although I think It's controlable with diet. Has anyone else had this? Any advice/pointers?

    :cry:

    I am so sorry.

    From what I have heard from other ladies who have it, it is completely manageable and something that you just have to be more aware of!

    I am thinking of you and available anytime you need me.

    I don't have this myself, but my best friend had this in her pergnancy. It really wasn't a problem. Once she'd seen the dietician and knew how to control it with her diet, she was fine. It goes as soon as you've given birth - so it's not a long term problem.

    Don't stress about it babes - it's really not as bad as it sounds!!!

    Thanks, ladies.

    I know it should be fine, but it just really threw me for a loop. I didn't have any symptoms (?) of it, and totally figured it'd be fine. Was really strange to have my ob/gyn call me personally too to let me know about it, but in retrospect it was kinda nice I guess.

    Now it's a waiting game to see when I can get into the Diabetic Councellor to go over how I need to start eating from now on. I have a horrid sweet tooth, so there's a part of me that's worrying that I somehow brought this upon myself somehow.

    I'm sure it will be fine... just makes me kinda sad. Thanks for the kind words! I don't know what I'd do without BnB at times!

    :hugs: I didn't have it but my MIL did with her daughter (she's now 6). It's very controllable with diet.
