I have 7 weeks more to go.how can we deal with this sugar level without medication. Is this something that my baby will also have post birth. Please help

Yes dear I am on the same boat. I am having 218 and on medcn & insulin. Just follow your doctor's advice and keep a watch on sugar levels.

Talk to the doc and take meds. This is totally controllable. Watch your diet and avoid sugary items and heavy carbs. Load up on protein.

Debolina Mukherjee; Thanks for your reply. Is you baby scan report normal post taking medication and how many times do you take insulin in a week. Post insulin did you see drop in sugar kevel.please share

Satarupa B Kaur; Thanks for your feedback.i want to know if there are any chances that baby will inherit the sugar or diabetes Post birth in future if mother experiencing sugar during pregnancy.

It's not necessary and I'd suggest dont think over all this at the moment.; Gestational diabetes is common these days but don't stress.; stress too hikes up the sugar levels.

Debolina Mukherjee

Baby scan report is normal. And I haven't checked my sugar after taking medicine. Will do it at next week. As I have started medcn recently

Hi Anjum , I am also on insulin thrice a day and medicine. All reports of baby is normal and sugars are under control. Don't worry about other things just trust and follow what your doc suggests
