My last prenatal visit wasn’t perfect because my weight increased more than what was required. However the baby is perfectly fine – my consolation. My doctor wanted me to gain weight about half kilo per two weeks but because of my wild enthusiasm in cooking and eating these days, I gained 3kls in 3 weeks (previous weight 69, now 72)!
I know, it’s beyond the limit! 😦
Consequently, my sugar level increased to 147mg/dL from the normal 120mg/dL after the doctor submits me to 1h-GCT or 1-hour Glucose Challenge Test. On Sunday, 4th of August, I will have a 3h GTT or 3-hour Glucose Tolerance Test and see if I have gestational diabetes. If diagnosed, I will undergo treatments to ensure my baby’s health and mine in the future. Now, I’m regulating or avoiding fatty, sweet and starchy food to bring back my normal blood sugar level.
On the other hand, to take away the worries I read more about gestational diabetes. It says it’s one of the common health problems to pregnant women in their last trimesters. But because I really wanted to have a healthy and safe delivery, I’m now following doctor’s advice! 😀 I hope it’s not too late!
Below are my tiny creations for the little one’s arrival soon! 😀
