Okay ladies, I'm a crying mess right now and am scared. I don't know anything about GD but was just told over the phone by the nurse practitioner at my OB's office that I failed the 3 hour test and I have GD. I have to go get a monitor to test my blood sugar and have to go see a dietitian.
So, here come a bunch of stupid questions that if I'd lurked on the high risk board at all I'd probably know the answers but I'm in no state to sift through all the old posts so please bear with me. Could I have prevented GD? I love sugar, fruits and candy-is this my fault? Is there a risk of harm to my baby? What are the risks of GD? What do I have to look forward to for the next 2 1/2 months?
Please Help! Reassure me that things will be okay! TIA
