Yes I have it and it's not great checking yourself multiple times a day but as long as you eat a healthy diet and try to watch your sugar and carb intake you should be fine! Are they putting you on medication or insulin? Also don't stress a lot of people get it, so your not alone!
I had gestational diabetes with my first baby. I was really freaked out at first but I was able to control it with diet and no insulin. You have to be really good about watching what you eat but it wasn't too big of a deal.
They haven't put me on medication or insulin they said they want to see first if I can control it on diet and exercise. How old are you if you don't mind me asking and do you think yours will go away after birth?
Did it go away after you had your baby? Or did it go into full blown diabetes? That's the part that frightens me the most that I'll end up getting type 2 diabetes.
I had it with my first pregnancy and as long as you watch what you eat and go by their diet you will be fine. Mine went away as soon as I delivered! You are just more likely to get it with your next pregnancy.
Thank you so much you really made me feel better.
