My goodness me I’m terrified and feel like I’ve totally lost control! This is my first pregnancy and was didgnosed with GD at 26wks, I’m now 33 wks. I was managing it ok with just diet alterations but last week things started going haywire so was put on Insulin 3x a day before meals. To be honest things are still irratic and i feel as though the insulin isn’t working. I still can’t manage to eat any carbs (bread, potatoes etc.) without BS shooting up. I was on a measure of 2 insulin but diabetic nurse has told me to put it to 3 and try and eat carbs and she’ll review it in 2 days. Had a weetabix for brekkie as recommended and blood shot from 5.4 to 9.0 2hours after eating. The thing is i’m confused as at first the specialist said aim for premeal reading of under 6 and post meal under 7, now they are saying keep it under 9, can anybody explain what i should be aiming for as i was told that when BS goes over 7 thats when it crosses the placents and affects the baby.
Am now having growth scans weekly last week was the first one. I was told that my baby is heading for the large side it weighs 4lbs 4 oz at the moment, also his/her head and abdomen are measuring large and are ‘borderline’? but the femur length is fine. I am so worried you’ve no idea, i just get told not to worry but know one will explain anything to me. Is my baby getting to big? What does it mean that baby’s head/abdomen is too big and will it even out? If anybody can help with any advice i’d be so grateful, i’m really keen to hear other mum’s experiences as i feel so alone and an emotional wreck, i really don’t think i can cope much longer, nobody at the hospital seems to be interested it explaining anything to me and i keep getting brushed off…nobody can see my anxiety. Please help i’m worried for my baby
