High BP, breech babe and now possible gestational diabetes? Gah!

Just wondering what else is going to go wrong now! lol. So glad I'm at 33 weeks because I honestly can't imagine getting the whole way to 39 at this stage.... anyway.... baby was measuring big for dates today so they're going to do the diabetes test next week. Anyone know if GD is preventable at this late stage?? I'd seriously do anything if it was!

At 33 weeks, baby is not breech, just head up. Plenty of time to play and move around and babies can move head down in labour.

I'm not that bothered by the breech-ness as I'm having a section anyway (although it is very uncomfortable indeed!). x

Yeah, my daughter was footling breech, she used to do laps and tap on my pelvic floor/ bladder as she did. Hiccups for weeks that led to her headbutting my diagphram which mean I had them too!
