Hello! My name is Amy. I am 8 weeks pregnant with my second. I was diagnosed with GD at the end of my 1st trimester during my 1st pregnancy, so they thought it was pre-existing diabetes. I controlled with diet alone for 2nd trimester and took insulin shots for 3rd trimester, despite following the diet very strictly. Luckily, my A1C and numbers were great after birth, so it was not a pre-existing condition. However, I started having high numbers as soon as I found out I was pregnant this time around.
My new OB- who is just temporary due to insurance reasons- that I don't trust very much immediately prescribed glyubride when I failed the 3 hour test yesterday. Does anyone have any experience with this? I am just concerned because the Dr couldn't even tell me what my exact numbers were and just doesn't really seem to know what she's doing. She does not handle diabetes and immediately referred me elsewhere which also did not inspire confidence.
Sorry for the lengthy explanation... I am just wanting to do the best for this baby and am concerned because I know early pregnancy is the most important time developmentally for sugars to be in control. Anyone else develop GD so early in pregnancy? Any experience with glyubride? Any help at all would be greatly appreciated!
