    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? Can orange juice be taken??

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

    I came to know 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.

    Hi Revathy,
    Its good that you don't have GD! :thumbsup
    You can try different fruits, veg salads.
    For Hb: Try iron rich foods with Vit C, it will help in absorbing it.
    It was like that initially, when time grows your baby will be more active and soon you will feel movements all the time!

    Hi Dheebas,
    GD, will make you & baby gain more weight, that may not be good in last trimester. Watch your diet.
    Stuffs for improving complexion? Hope those helps!
    soda & milk? never heard if it. Why it has to be taken? For digestion issues? Its not good to have carbonated drinks. Milk is good though!
    mobile app and chat option? interesting! Hope something will come!

    My update:
    I had my sugar test. Reports closing border line. Have to watch out my diet. If i miss the safe zone, they will put me for GTT. I don't want to take it! Lets see how it goes...
    I have my doc appointment tomorrow! Hope all will go well. Looking forward to watch LO!

    Take care ladies...

    My HB has also fallen to 9.4 and worst thing is any iron medicine I take creates constipation which ultimately makes my piles problem worst. So I can't even take Iron so regularly. But I am taking iron with magnesium for few days. Letz c.


    What are your border sugar line results?

    My sugar level in the morning before breakfast , if it is even a little above 90 . My doc says INSULIN whereas my friend had above 90 fasting and her doc just asked her to watch-out her diet.

    same is the case with 1 hour after breakfast. If it goes even slightly above 140 , my doc suggests Insulin.

    Hi dheebas,
    My HB to fall from 12+ to 10.5 with pregnancy. Having iron tablets twice daily plus some food support. Now it came to 11.5! Need to bring it to 12 or more if possible. But during pregnancy hb levels will fall because of baby needs and other stuffs.
    Don't use milk and iron together, give at least 2+ hours spacing between them. They both won't absorb together. Try iron with Vit C foods, it will absorb better. You can have dates, fig, raisins, Drumstrick leaves to improve iron intake. If you are nonvegan, try meat. It will help too!
    Protein intake will improve baby weight. May be thats why you are suggested for protein powder.

    Hi Awife,
    My fasting sugar was 95, until 99 its not a problem. Once its touching 100, its going out of control! But if it comes to 90s, we have to watch out diet and reduce the carbo and sugar intake. That should help. I am planning to control. Lets see if it will fall under control in next test!

    Take care ladies...

    My 3 hr GTT results came normal :) .... My fasting sugar was 75 and out of 4 readings 1 came abnormal ..... doc told thats fine watch ur diet and don't take much carbohydrates .... i am relaxed hearing this ..... as of now my HB count is in the normal range (they didn't say number) ....

    Before going to GTT i had whole wheat bread , raagi jaava,boiled eggs and for dinner i ate chapathis .... i think these things helped me .... so i should maintain the same diet to keep control on my sugar ......

    How are u all doing ?

    Please Check the pregnancy section sticky thread which has links to other important threads in that forum. It will have a thread for Garbarakshambigai songs, you can use that!
    If you couldn't locate, let me know! I will give you the link! Take care.

    Hi Yamini,
    Good that your GTT and HB is normal! :thumbsup
    I think you can maintain the diet and hope it help you to keep the sugar levels under control! Eat healthy & be happy!

    My baby trying to hit bladder and that gives nice discomfort! I am telling my baby not to do that and play anywhere else! Hope he/she hears it!surrendersmiley
