Did you have any symptoms with gestational diabetes or was it a shock that you had it?? I am taking a test on thur.

I had no symptoms at all...So, yes, it was a shock, especially since I'm very slim and haven't put on much weight during my pregnancy either...Good luck with your test!

I would feel really tired after I ate. And all of the sudden I gained weight without really having any change to my diet. I know some people have increased fluid intake and urinate a lot. One time my surgar got so high I was seeing black spots. I couldn't control mine with diet alone. I take insulin three times a day and I am 36 weeks. I was suprised that I had it... being the first time I took the test at 17 weeks (because my dad is a diabetic), it was normal. Then I take it again at 27 weeks and I had it. My biggest concern is that I will be delivering a larger baby (firs two were 7#14oz; 7#10oz). And that she may become hypoglycemic after she is born (that is what I usually suffer from). So, are you taking the three hour test? Sometimes you fail the one hour and you are okay on the three. Good luck!!

I just remember feeling really tired again, like at the start when you are first pregnant. And being thirsty all the time. My first pg it kicked in at 30 weeks, this time 24 weeks, I knew straight away this time and starting testing my sugars again b/c of the tiredness/thirst. Again, no family history, very slim and active person.. that's why always worth doing the test, u just never know. Good luck!
