High-Risk Pregnancy

New here

I failed my 2hr OGTT test today. High on all 3 blood draws: by 2 mg/dL on the fasting, and 9 mg/dL on both the 1 and 2 hr readings. But that's all it takes and I will be testing my blood glucose 4 times a day, and may need meds as well. I knew I had risk factors, as my dad has diabetes, and I am overweight. But I am still taken aback a bit and worried about LO.

Re: New here

  • Hello, I am in the same boat.  Both grandparents have diabetes and I was overweight by about 40lbs. when I got pregnant.  I wish you the best during your pregnancy.  Hopefully we can control everything through diet.

    Take care.

  • Good luck.  It's not as hard as it may seem right now.  I've been able to control mine through just diet and I only have 3 weeks left.  My LO is measuring perfectly normal, so there is no need to worry about your LO.
