Hello, Im in my 34 1/2 wk of pregnancy, im a sch csection on April 30th, had my 3 hr glucose screening and failed and they called yesterday and said i have gest diabetes. I went today and got my tester and strips and have to poke myself 4x a day, they want me to see a dietican but she cant see me until April 16th, which is crazy. Wouldnt you agree? So anyone know what i should be doing/eating. I also have asked them to please take me off work, im miserable and tired all the time, but they laughed and said its to early to be taken off. Any ideas or anything that i can say or do to get taken off work???Answer Question
