I know that there are a lot of threads about GD but I wondered if anyone could help me?
My dad is a diabetic so I was sent for a GTT as standard at 28 weeks. It came back as a little high but still under the normal range.
This morning (31 weeks) my midwife said I had a very high amount of sugar in my urine and coupled with excessive thirst and tiredness plus family history she's concerned I might now have developed GD. So now I have to repeat the GTT on Monday.
I guess what I'd like to know is how likely it is I would have a high sugar reading in my urine if I wasn't diabetic?
Thanks Mrsmugoo, I'm obviously concerned about the complicationas associated with GD but as you said I've only got nine weeks left to go - but if I do have I will be considered high risk and won't be able to go to my local birthing centre as planned which really upsets me.
I had a double plus of glucose in my urine at my last midwife appointment, tested my blood sugar 10 mins later (had GD in last pg so am monitoring) and was completely normal. I'd forgotten I had 6 choc chip biscuits mid-morning (oops!). The excessive thirst is obviously a red flag but you still may be within normal limits despite the glucose.
Haha Hubba at the 6 cookies. All is had was a bowl if Special K, not sure if that's high in sugar or not but midwife didn't seem to think it Cousy be from that. What do the pluses mean? Mine was a triple plus.
