Before you found out you had GD, what were your symptoms?

I'm craving refined sugar constantly, but when I have it I have the worst come downs ever where I feel really tired and drained and have been suffering from brain fog.
I'm worried that I'm causing myself to have GD by not being strict enough about cutting out sugar.
TIA

I am having the same fear
I get tired and so thirsty
I am down for a test but not for another 6 weeks or so

I didn't have any cravings, but am definitely craving chocolate and carbs now I've been diagnosed and can't have them. Watching GBBO is TORTURE!

Sorry! Meant to say that I didn't have any symptoms.

Thirsty, recurrent thrush (sorry -TMI) and feeling utterly diabolical if I skipped a meal (apparently I'm prone to false hypos). Speak to your midwife and see if you can bring the GTT forward perhaps?

Thank you I'll ring midwife in the morning
