18 Weeks Pregnant with Gestational Diabetes

18 Weeks Pregnant with Gestational Diabetes

Hi All,

I was told that I was at high risk for GD because of my thyroid issues (by the same people who refused to accept I had thyroid issues) And indeed I do have high fasting blood sugar levels. I am now tracking my BS daily but I was wondering if anyone else had experienced this with pregnancy and being Hypo? Any tips out there would be greatly appreciated! I'm only 18 weeks and already the swelling is painful - I have issues with inflammation due to the thyroid which has been escalated 10 fold during the pregnancy.

I'm sorry you've had no replies. Feel free to repost your question. I'm sorry to hear about the swelling and hope you will feel better soon.
