What happens? I have it next friday . The midwife said its going to take about an hour, that seems a long time. its also at 12 miday, what an irritating time to have an appointment, im going to have to leave work and go back in again, which seeing as it takes me about 40 mins to drive to work is a pita.

Consultant in diabetes or consultant obstetrician with a specialism in diabetes? I've never seen the former, but am under the care of the latter. I've only ever seen diabetic nurse , who are brilliant. At my first appointment they talked through what GD is, its effect on me and the baby, what happens if its not controlled, and how to control it through diet. I was also given instructions on how to check my blood sugar, given my monitor, and also taught how to inject insulin if needed (I suppose this is only done when your sugars are really bad, which mine were almost immediately). I also had telephone conversations (including on a bank holiday!) with a dietician who helped me in good and bad foods for GD. The first appt was long but its a lot to take in.
Am usually around if you have any questions too - have they officially diagnosed you? What were your levels?
