    Hi Awife,
    Hope your insulin levels will come under control. Avoid carbo intake in night, used reduced carbo in day time. It will help in controlling the insulin levels!

    Heart burn took that day night, next night had gas troubles and bloating! Today? For now not much heavy trouble! Hope i will handle it!
    Baby kicks and the movements are nice... Previously i used them to feel in night or when i switch on AC. Now any random time, when baby wishes! Even i feel more movements than hard punches!

    Hi Yamini,
    Include protein in your menu and reduce carbo intake. That should help in controlling the sugar level and fill you properly! Hope you will pass 3 hours test! All the best!

    Take care ladies..

    How is everyone doing? Started preparing for baby clothes? Looking for baby names?
    Third trim must have already started for few. All the best and hope we all enjoy the phase!

    My update :
    *Because of Gestational Diabetes, pricking finger 6 times a day + twice insulin injections.
    Sugar levels are still going out of control. Docs adjusting dosage.
    *Piles problem still exists and after lot of trials, my Doc said there is no cure. You might have to just live with it. They will reduce after a while. Trying to eat fiber but eating even a single apple increases my sugar levels exponentially. So probably have to only rely on vegetables and chapati.

    Awife,

    Are you a vegetarian? If not, add eggs/chicken etc to your diet. You will feel full and your sugars will be under control
    .to avoid morning high level, eat dinner early at 6 or 7 and have a bed time snack before bed. See if it helps. There is a gd thread in pregnancy forum. It's in the sticky section. You of people shared their diets and issues thete. Please check the thread.

    I am also having gd.

    Hi Awife,
    I hope GD and piles give you tough time. Hope you will be able to balance them! Figure out low glycemic index (GI) foods and try them if possible. They might help you with GD. From beginning i don like to involve with sugar troubles, so, kept so much of watch on what i take and how much i take. I had PCOS too. Controlling sugar or sweet intake and less carbo helped me. Try oats with veg/nuts too. Hope something helps you!
    All the best dear.

    Ya, i am into last trimester. Baby naming only after birth and it will be based on star signs. Cloths, i will take some time to buy them or people will buy after delivery. May primary stuffs, we will try to buy by 9M.
    How about you? Started with shopping or later?

    Hi Dheebas,
    5 hours test? why? It has to be 3 hours GTT right! I do have basic glucose screening. If thats normal, i may escape from GTT!
    Hope things will go fine! All the best!

    No. Please don't say that. I don't want them to give me tough time. :) I know itz a typo.

    By the way, I have been having this itching over my abdomen area for past 8 to 10 days. Same spot. If it is too hot outside my itching increases. I tried applying moisturising cream but no use. So I told my doc. She immediately asked me to go through a blood test. She wanted to check if I am having
    cholestasis of pregnancy .
    Luckily the results were good. But it is shocking to know that even an itching without rash during pregnancy might be a result of some serious problem. :(

    Other than that, I feel extremely sleepy during afternoon. I am not a person who is used to afternoon naps. Infact when the whole family takes a nap on a holiday after a god meal. I will be the only person awake and doing some tp. So it is weird for me to feel sleepy afternoon. Anyone else feeling this way? I guess itz a 3rd trim symptom. Not sure.

    All the best ladies with your GD test.

    Hi AWife,
    I was trying to convey those two issues are troubling now. Hope they will reduce & vanish soon!
    Pregnancy brings sleepiness dear, its not new one. Try to nap in the afternoon if your body asks for it. Relax the rules. My night sleep already got disturbed and i am utilizing the day time short naps. Enjoy the afternoon naps! :)
    Itchiness, i have it from the beginning as a side effect of some medications or hormones. I used to have tablets in the initial days, later on managed to control on my own. I used to have medium size nails, now trimmed it well. Whenever i start to scratch, i will try to change mind & rub the area gently(at least after initial scratch). In time it got handled. Even these days night time scratching is tough to handle! Have to live with it!
    Try moisturizers, oil or something that will hold your hands from scratching.
    Take care.

    Hi...The lab person said me it is 5 hours test but it was 2.5 hours test,...they dint do basic glucose screening...not sure why they went for direct GTT.

    Reports have come..Seems like there is mild sugar..yet to check with doctor on wednesday..

    I am scared about GD.What are the complications ? and what diet should be followed?

    any suggestions? Anyone taking carrot juice, apple, gulkhand for baby's complexion?? I know its silly to concetrate on complexion but wannaa give the baby the best.SO don mind and provide me suggestions if you know anything.

    I came to knbow from 25th week women take soda with/without milk.Any idea about its benefits??

    Hope all in 7th month now..All the best :) :) we need to be very active for the next 100 days...Wish indusladies had mobile app or chat provisions for the group.
