I’m a FTM, due 11/4, and am 37 years old, and have been approaching every new symptom and road bump in this pregnancy with curiosity, rather than animosity, which has helped me stay positive.
That said, the glucose tests! I failed my 1 hour test, and have my 3 hour test tomorrow. I’m so confused! I eat fairly healthy, exercise regularly (Though took a 2 week hiatus due to COVID), and have stayed within weight gain guidelines. Why oh why would I have gestational diabetes?! I know I can likely manage this with diet and exercise, and it’s best to know upfront so it can be treated, but am struggling with staying positive throughout this latest trial.
