Spring/Summer 2012 Baby Bumps!

I have GD :(

I had my 3 hour glucose test yesterday and I got a call from my ob's office that my levels were too high and that I have GD. I had an absolute breakdown - I still am even as i write this. I have to go pick up my glucometer and supplies and I have a meeting with a dietician on Wednesday. Thankfully my DH and best friend are SO supportive. I just spent 30 minutes skyping with her (she lives in CA sadly) but she's going to change her diet to help me through this and send each other pictures of our food and recipes. I dont know what I would do without her! And my hubby has called me 3 times in the last two hours making sure I'm okay and is coming home early from work. I'm just so thankful for the people in my life. But I'm soooo upset. I know I shouldnt feel this way but i feel like I failed my baby girl, like I did this to her. I know I know, it's not my fault but it's so hard not to feel that way.
So I guess I'm just looking for a big pity party haha

Aw, Andrea try not to beat yourself up over this.  It really isn't a big deal and can be managed well through your diet.  So nice that you have such a supportive BF and DH, I'm sure their encouragement will really help you to get through this.  You will do great! *hugs*

Oh Andrea I'm sorry!!!! BUT I had GD and it wasn't to bad. Wait until your OB checks your sugars too, mine was under control with just the diet so I didn't have to prick myself everyday.

Try not and be upset - there really is nothing you did wrong. PM or message me on Facebook if you ever want to talk :-)

I am so sorry to hear this. I hope the diet is OK for you and glad you have support but we are here for you if you need to vent etc. You haven't failed its just how your body is reacting to pregnancy and good it has been picked up.


I had sugar in my last urine test and hope it was Easter egg overload I have a repeat test next week so think I may be joining you soon. Have a great weekend relax H x

I'm so sorry! You did not do anything wrong. What an awesome best friend and husband you have! After the shock and sadness wear off, I hope it will be easy to manage your diet and glucose levels.

Andrea, I am so sorry! I can totally understand how that upsets you, so feel free to have that pity party. You are SO blessed to have an amazing Dh & bf. They sound like they'd do anything to cheer you up! I think you'll feel better after you've had some time to digest the news and it will probably be easier to manage than you think. Big hugs to you!!! xoxo

Andrea I am so sorry. I can imagine how upset you are about it. Pregnancy is stressful enough as it is so adding more stress is no good. Like the others said hopefully diet will all you need to tweek and you will be good to go. I am glad you have such supportive love ones around you. Don't blame yourself. From what I heard it really is mostly out of your control and not something you have done wrong. I hope in a day or two you can come to terms with it and not be so overwhlemed. And just think in a few short weeks baby will be here.:)

Thank you so much ladies! I love the virtual support that I get from each and every one of you! it really means a lot to me :) I'm doing a lot better today now that the initial shock has worn off. DH and I are getting ready to go grocery shopping to find foods that I can eat. I didnt realize how many carbs are in everything! Thank goodness I love steak and cheese lol
But thank you all soooo much!! :)

Awww, Andrea - I just saw this.   Please do know that there's nothing you could have done to prevent it.  I hope you're feeling a bit better about it after a few days have passed.
