Just had my 24 week antenatal appointment where they discovered a trace of glucose in my urine. Whist I rationally know I have none of the markers for gestational diabetes (age, weight, family history etc) so it is probably just a random slightly elevated level, I am completely freaking out.
Now I have to endure a glucose tolerance test at 27 weeks. This involves drinking a pint of Lucozade two hours before a blood test. Which isn't so bad in itself but the myriad of baby related appointments I have coming up in the next three weeks is just not funny! From Anti D injection to whooping cough vaccination to birth counselling session to consultant appointments my calendar is revolving around the hospital and it is stressing me out. Gestational diabetes is added stress I could really do without so fingers crossed my pancreas is playing ball.
