Today I went to see the diabetic midwife and consultant
Urine - clear
Anemia - my levels are still low but have Risen from 9 to 11.5
Gestational diabetes - out of control
Even though I have cut out ice cream, chocolate and crisps, reduced my portion sizes and taking 3x metformin a day, my levels overnight (fasting) are well over the acceptable limit, and some levels during the day and evening are still too high
So I went to see another diabetic nurse, she showed me how to inject myself, I'm starting this tonight, doesn't look too painful.
I'm feeling a bit sorry for myself and also just nervous, I'm scared that something will happen to my baby!
The sensible bit of me says millions of women with diabetes have healthy babies, but as always there is a horror story to read!
I hope this dose sorts me out, will find out soon enough, if my levels are still high by Thursday I have to call them then I just give myself a higher dose.
Anyone got GD or had GD and had a lovely healthy baby?
