1st of all, my gtt test results , one of them is a bit high at 5.8 and should be between 2-5 according to midwife so sending me off to see cons.
Next im still measuring a few weeks ahead and midwife can tell im fluidy, so sending me for a growth scan. ( i had polyhydraminous last itme)
My iron levels are low , so now have tron tabs which last time made me constipated.
and finally, baby is still transverse.
I might need some help with regards to this gd stuff, but il wait for the cons appointment.

We can hold hands them Mrs C. Mine came back a bit high today too. When will you be seen. I've been booked a scan and MW appointment at the hospital for tomorrow.

No idea on the GTT stuff I'm afraid, but lots of people swear by Spatone for iron supplements - it's in liquid form and apparently doesn't cause the same issues with constipation.
Hope you get the appointment through soon so you can get some proper answers x

Can i buy this spatone stuff over the counter? Il have a look in tesco tonight.
I have a scan next wed, but waiting for them to contact me about the consultant appointment. Rusty, did you have it first time round as well ?
i might have , although was never tested for it, i had polyhydraminous, which apparently can go alongside it and she was 8lb 10 at 38+3

Was going to say the same as Margot re spatone. Sorry cant help on the others but hopefully you'll get some help from others

MrsClarkeRusty, did you have it first time round as well ?
No, though I did do the GTT about 5 times (all negative).
M was nearly 11lbs though at 40+18.

happy to answer any GD questions you might have - i have been insulin dependant for both pregnancies . 5.8 is on the high side, though not crazily high.
i'm also in need of iron supplements - have been prescribed pregaday by my GP, though have been told horror stories about the constipation, and just don't need that to add to my list, so i bought a box of spatone from boots instead - £8.25 for 28 sachets (so not cheap). have only been taking them a few days but already feel much better.
your pregnancy bingo card is filling up almost as quickly as mine! will send you anti GD and anti polyhydramnios vibes x
