Hello kind people, I am 30+3 weeks pregnant and had the glucose test last week. I just received an appointment to see the diabetes midwife, so I assume I did not pass. I am so depressed about it, I have always watched my diet and have never been overweight - in fact I have battled with anorexia for most of my life. I obviously boosted my intake when I found out I was pregnant, but mostly fresh fruit and raw vegetables with only the occasional chocolate biscuit. Without knowing what I have done to create this situation, I do not know what to change to help it. I can only think that the couple of glasses of fruit juice a day and those occasional biscuits have done damage because my body was not used to it. I am not in any high risk category and do not have a history of it in the family.
I would really appreciate any advice about what I should be eating until I get some clarification at my appointment? Has anyone else had the same problem?
Lots of thanks in advance.
