hi ladies iam 24 weeks pregnant and all week I have felt exhausted like more than usual I struggle to get through the day without sleeping and even that dosent make me feel more awake. I've also had an extreme dry mouth and have been Drinking pints and pints of water and still feel thirsty afterwards. I'm worried it may be diabetes as im overweight aswell do I ring doctors or midwife and should I wait a while to see if symptoms improve?
Thanks in advance for any advice

I would ask the midwife whether you can get a blood test or glucose test done to see if it is GD. I had this during pregnancy and my symptoms were the same,also a big woman myself.definitely ring midwife about it x

I phoned my midwife today and she said if still same Monday call back and they will try bringy glucose test forward as I've still got another month. Did it cause you many problems during pregnancy? X

Hi Charrz91 and Chamilto. Just thought you might like to know that there are some other pregnant women with GD on here - they started a thread about it a few days ago.
Maybe you could persuade them to join you here? Or you could join in with them there? Or both!
We'd love to get a good general chat going about GD, as we know it affect so many of us.

Oops apologies, Charrz91: can see that you'd found that thread already (blush).
Hope you're feeling a bit better today, Chamilto?

I'm still feeling rubbish but now have full on cold so perhaps that was what my symptoms were all about?? I see midwife on wednesday anyway so hopefully will sort me out then xx

Oh poor you! Hope your midwife can put your mind at rest on Wednesday - do let us know how you're doing, won't you?
