So had my 28wk appt today. Saw registrar. Getting booked in for cs at my 34/35week appt 😁 Scanned today and this baby seems to measuring big. Reg explained it as being due to the growth chart for this one being adjusted based on first baby. So, now I have to go back on Thurs for gtt . Not looking forward to hanging around the surgery for 2 hrs! My urine was all clear today and always has been. Think he just doing it to rule it out. What's likelihood it is gd based on that? Given measurements aren't always accurate?
Nothing ever showed up in my urine dips before I was diagnosed with GD. The size measuring is all nonsense though. With DS1 I just had the bump measuring and he measured only 1cm over every time - he came out 11lb11oz. With DS2 I had growth scans and they predicted around 11lb. He was 9lb4oz.
My bump wasn't measured they scanned me. Def taking snacks for after cos I will be starving by then. Do you get results there and then? The reg also said the threshold for positive results has been lowered so along with that and testing more ladies now they are picking up more positives.
The first time I got the result was the day after. Think I was tested at 29 weeks. The second time I knew I had it and I called them on Monday to check if they had the result. I was only 16 weeks! Good luck for today
With my hospital they call us the next day or so. When doing the bloods, they double, triple check that they have the correct telephone number & write it again on the blood request thingy. They don't wait until the next appointment as that could be weeks away. Ask them when you do the test.
