Gestational diabetes


So we found out two weeks ago that I have gestational diabetes following the glucose test. I'm a vegetarian and my diet is now even more boring!

I have to test my blood sugars four times a day. I was initially managing my blood sugar levels with diet and exercise but have now been put onto three metformin tablets twice a day.

The baby is measuring within range at the scans but today my bump was measured alot bigger. I'm 28 weeks and measuring 32cm.

The midwife said GD babies and the fact I am mixed race with African genes means we are more likely to have a bigger baby and there has been talk of being induced but not sure how early.

Is anybody else in a similar situation?

I'm starting to panic that we could have the baby a lot sooner than expected!
