Posted by Gestational diabetes (as ),
I did a glucose test that came in at a high reading that I found unusual as I watch my diet and sugar intake. Then being transferred to another hospital to be waiting around 7 hours to find out I'm apparently gestational diabetic. Did a class, only to learn that I don't need to change my diet. Was given a blood glucose meter used that for 2 weeks. My readings came in at normal pregnancy glucose readings. I went back for second check up now have told me the readings are too low or either the machine is faulty or I might be hypoglycemic. I have been given a new glucose meter and have to go back in another 2 weeks. I'm finding the hole situation confusing as I'm not showing any symptoms of gestational diabetes or hypoglycemia and they will not send me for another glucose test, as I'm 33 week's pregnant. Been shoved between different doctors and midwifes. I find this very impersonal causing lots of added stress. Having a baby is meant to be a fun and exciting time - this isn't the experience I'm having.
