I was shocked when i was told i had Gestational Diabetes as i have none of the risk factors! im only 20, im normal weight, its my 1st baby.. they say some of the risk factors are things like family history of dibetes, having a previously big baby, being over weight, things like that, but like i said i had none and i got it, about 9% of women get it.. My pregnancy has gone pretty fast since i hit the big 12 weeks lol, i was hanging out for the big 12 weeks so i was in the safer zone then everything went fast from there smile im finding it hard to believe im nearly 29 weeks!
I had morning sickness till 11 weeks, i never threw up i just had constant nausea, so far i have had to have a tooth pulled out, had bladder and a kidney infections, i have negative blood so i have to have 3 anti D needles, i have to go on a drip as soon as i go into active labour as i have the group B strep that some pregnant women also have, and now i have the Gestational Diabetes so its been a pretty bumpy ride for my 1st time lol.. Im going to the high risk clinic at my hosiptal now and so far they havent given me much info either! but i have been round babies and pregnant friends for along time so im pretty much clued up but its always good to have the profesionals there to help! i get the leg cramps and things to, i just jump out of bed and put pressure on it and it goes, at the moment im getting aching hips and legs everymorning when i wake up, but bubs really big now so puts lots of pressure on things.. i get to have lots more scans now to moniter bubs size cause with the diabets they can get to big and if that happens they bring them on early so im a bit excited about maybe getting him at 38 weeks not 40 tongue im pretty much all ready for him, we just have to set everything up in his room smile we painted it all and have it all ready to go, just boxes everywere lol! well i will stop blabbing on lol and hope to hear from you again soon smile xx
