So i recently did my glucose screening test (1 hour), I was sooconfident that I would pass with flying colors! However, I failed miserably. :( Just got the call from docs office today saying that an appointment with a dietician would be set up soon. I was just so devastated! My levels were so high that they didnt need to do the 3 hour fasting glucose tolerance test.
I have been depressed all day and cant stop thinking abt this. I HATEEE needles and obviously having to monitor the blood sugar levels I will have to prick my finger multiple times a day.
Im really stressed about the baby and what this means in terms of delivery. For those who have gone through this, could you please offer some insight?
Does gestational diabetes always result in induction?
Do the doctors let you go past 40 weeks in favor of spontaneous labor?
What can i do to make sure my baby is healthy?
Im really worrried and dont want to have my baby early! My husband is not with me right now and we are planning on having him come a week before the due date. I really need him here for the birth. So sooo stressed and depressed :'(
Any support or insight will be greatly appreciated.
