Just wanna check is there any mummy found out that they have Diabetes during pregnancy ? Which usually doesn't have this problem..
Oic.. Because I just know I have this problem during my 24 weeks.. So is quite upsad .. Goin the course coming tues .. dont know what will need to do on that day.. Izit need to do another test ? Need to buy med to control? Nurse told me that my rate is 8.3 .. Izit too high?
1st test is 10.1 at 20th week
2nd test after 2hr is 8.1 at 22th week
at 1st i very worried about baby's health, but coping well now.
i never take any medi or insulin injection.
my gynea want me to test my blood sugar level twice a week for 2 weeks on sun & mon, i control my diet after 2 week i just need to continues once a week test.
each test day need to test for 7 times. 30min before meal, 2hr after meal. for bfast, lunch, dinner. last test is before sleep.
i use my dad's monitor - accu chek active to test. get the test strips n needles from tan hock seng hospital or any gov hospital pharmacy. will be cheaper alot.
dont worry too much. just dont drink sweet drinks, outside soup ( can eat noodle, just dont drink soup) less rice cos of carbo will turn sugar, change to brown rice if can, replace food w/ more veg n meat. i still eat alot, like wholemeal bread w/ olivebutter, milo kosong, unsalted chips.. etc
and pls dont diet!! cos once my blood sugar level too high, cos i too hungry eat too much at 1 time.
remember you just need to control for these few months, for yourself now & your baby's health in future!!
dont worry n be a happy mummy!!
My gynae told me to do it 6 times per day (before and after breakfast, lunch and dinner) for 3 days per week. She tells me to repeat this every week. But I really cannot poke myself even though I won't see the needle. So I wait for hubby to come home and poke before and after dinner. She is sure to scold me during my next visit
My is after the drinks of syrup after bout 2 hours then have the result of 8.3.. So that mean I have to buy the monitor machine to test too? Izit test till end of pregnancy? Theres few more month to go.. Well can I buy the machine outside? Or can I dont't do any testing with the machine? It's will dry up my saving.. Now I only can survive with my little saving till end of my pregnancy... + now only my husband salary , I dont't think we can tk it for long term till end of pregnancy.. Lol.. Is there any other way or any tin to control? Even no choice have to test but at lease if every tin under control.. Then it can lesser the times of testing per day .. Hope I can no need to test.. And which hospital you all from? Kk too? So after the course , do I need to visit gynae again?

I am with Gleneagles. My gynae lends me the reading machine and give me the poking device. But I paid $150 for the testing strips and $36 for the needles.
I also have the same question: How long do we have to do it? Poking fingers, I hate it! I am slightly anaemic, each drop of blood is precious*
Icic, I dont't know too.. So maybe tml I can check with the nurse there or gynae.. As I also not really sure what I shld do next.. So currently how many month r you now? I hate poke needle on my finger .. I think I gt low blood problem.. Every time tk sweet to control so that I won't feel giddy easily.. But due to my taste change , have been stop tkin sweet once I kno I'm pregnant.. If really need to poke my finger with those needle .. I think I will faint .. Some more need to test so many time per day.. Think my poor finger will turn blue black.. Although I not scare of seeing blood .. But it's kinda waste .. Lol ..
some gynea clinic got rent out at $50 to $100. just need to get the stripes, needles and alcohol swap.
i cant remember the machine how much, think is around $100. for the strip i bought at tan hock seng hospital, for 50stripes around $50, the needle is 25 pc at around $7. need to get alcohol swap also which cost about $9 per box for 100pc. dont get from watson or guardian. for the price there i can just top up abit to get double at hospital.
have to test till you give birth.
the blood needed for test is very little. just a small dot. press hard & poke at the center of the finger. the 1st day i test my finger very pain cos i adjust to 4 too deep. now i try at 2 onli. dont think your skin that thick also.
nowaday if i feel i eat too sweet i will test myself also. so i know which food is safe to eat.
the onli way to control to test less is control your diet. less white rice/ white bread / soft drink.
change to brown rice. if can cook at home try not to eat outside. pls dont diet!!
althou i control my diet. i still eat alot, my baby is gain weight. at 28week he is 1.2kg, i am on the overweight side. my weight gain still now is onli 1kg. actually i am losing weight, while baby gaining.
Oic.. So tml I will check with them bout the machine then.. But where you buy the strip? How come so cheap? N rent from hospital .. $100 is per month or till end of pregnancy?
Actually until now I still dont know whose the weight gain or lose weight.. My gynae doesn't say any tin bout the of both of us.. So I not so sure.. My usual weight before pregnant is 49.. N but during 1st trim my weight drop till 46.. But now 2nd trim my is only 53 some time.. Some time 52.. So how to kno whose gain weight? Or lose weight?
is ex !! i never rent the machine. is from my dad. the brand is - accu chek active. is the cheapest brand is think. my gynea using this brand also.
Joeychen - normally is rent till end of pregnancy. at 1 price. but not sure hospital got rent anot. your gynea from where??
if never rent, then you get the same brand as mine. get it from tan hock seng hospital.
The new Accu-Chek Active
baby weight will be normally taken after 24week
You had to monitor your sugar level closely as excess sugar will be passed to your baby if there's too much in your bloodstream. Then baby had to produce additional insulin to get rid of the excess sugar pass to him and which generates more energy out and he will become a big baby ending up you had to C-sect. Also once he's born, he might have jaundice and anaemic...
Oic.. My also at kk.. Seen tats free then is good.. Can save some money. But how long is the course will tk for the 1 day course?
It's morning to evening 530pm
hihi, may i know what are the symptoms for gestational diabetes?
I tin my is not the course as you all say.. I just go for my appointment.. They just ask me to monitor my daily meal.. N it only tk for a hours.. Might need to check with my gynae again nxt appointment..
I just had my blood test yesterday and was high. So upset. Needs to go for further tests.
Usually after the tests, do you have to see the gynae on the same day again? Cos if it is still on the high side, I wouldn't know what to do next.
Anyone has any diabetic meal plans to share? I am not sure what I can or should eat and what I should avoid (except the obvious like soft drinks, durians).
will you know the result on the same day as the Glucose Test?
