I was diagnosed with gestational diabetes at week 32 of pregnancy last year (Oct 2009). I then had the baby at week 36 (November 1st, 2009). After that I had the fasting. After I drinking the bottle, I walked 30 minutes, thinking that even if I have diabetes, the test results will not show. Is it true? I haven't checked the test results yet, because I am afraid. I experienced gestational diabetes for only a month, and that was not a pleasant month for me. I was constantly hungry, and my finger tip had so many holes because of testing. That little needle does hurt, and when I tested so many times on the finger tips, I had to go with bigger (longer???) needle. Now I read posts that talks about loosing limbs, going blind… I am freaked out. I have a long way to go. Friends, please give words of support. I am still in denial, but with your support, I think I will be a little stronger.
Thank you all,
