Glucose test

Postby Bayla » Thu Jan 28, 2021 6:11 am

I did the glucose test and it was 200. I'm still pretty small bump wise. I'm excited about the baby but everything keeps going wrong, my pap was positive and now diabetes. Doctor gave me a Lancet device to check sugar levels 4 times a day. First time mom. Did anyone else fail glucose test... Ps I don't even eat sweets, just 1 glass of sweet tea a day.. Thank for listening to my rant

It's not all about what you eat. Genetics take a roll in this factor.

In my first pregnancy I was tested with gestational diabetes. I don’t consider myself eating unhealthy nor very healthy. I would say half and half. But genetics play an important role plus your body has reactions when being pregnant. I had to check my sugar 4 times a day also, take small dosage of medicine and have a healthy diet. No much sugars or foods that convert into sugars like rice and potatoes. And I had to walk at least 30 min a day. That’s how I controlled my diabetes during pregnancy and as soon as baby was born, my diabetes disappeared. I am pregnant with my second one now and I am getting tested in a week. So I am hoping I don’t have this time but if I do, I guess I already know what to expect. Also, I had to get a c-section cause of my health with the diabetes.
