^hello sis! I was diagnosed with GDM nung 6th month ko. I gave birth via NSD at 38 weeks. From 30 weeks onwards closely monitored na ang size ni baby at fluid levels ko, almost weekly ang sonogram ko nun. 6lbs 15 oz lang si baby nung lumabas.

hi sis simang, were you taking insulin during your pregnancy? ano sugar levels mo before delivery? do you monitor daily? i'm taking insulin and metformin kasi. gusto ko din sana itry NSD kung aayos placenta ko para mas mura but sabi nila mas safe for diabetics ang cs. hope you can share your experience. thanks! :)

^naginsulin din ako sis, from 6 months onwards. Nung hindi pa ako pinag insulin, strict diet lang, hindi nagnormal sugar levels ko. Kaya pinag insulin din ako, 10units once a day. Nung 7th month nagnormal na sugar ko pero pinacontinue pa din insulin ko tapos strict diet pa din (although hindi ako very strict, lol, nung nag insulin ako mas malakas loob ko kumain thinking may insulin naman eh! Hahaha). Pero ayun until manganak ako normal levels na. Post delivery, medyo erratic ang sugar ko may time na super taas may time na normal minsan naman super baba. Nung 1st hour post partum di pa ko inallow mag breastfeed kasi baka daw maghypoglycemia si baby. Pero pagka room in kay baby nakapag breastfeed na din ako agad. 2 weeks postpartum normal na sugar ko without insulin so cleared na ko nun kay endo.

yey! congrats sis! after delivery binigyan ba ng formula si baby? kasi ang worry ko is mag hypo sya dahil sanay ang pancreas nya mag produce ng madaming insulin while he's inside me tapos paglabas nya hindi na sya dependent sa mataas na sugar ko so baka mag hypo sya if not fed agad.

nag monitor ka pa din ba after delivery even for a few days?

malakas din ang loob ko kumain dahil may insulin pero i make sure na within range ako sa binigay ng ob ko. ngayon i have 8-6-6-5 units a day. bfast, lunch, dinner, and bedtime. i will have to increase it next week by 2 units each kasi mag inject kami steroids for lung maturity ni baby in case of preterm labor. elevated daw ang sugar for a week after the steroids. btw, naka insulin ako since 9 weeks.

^yes sis she was given formula nung 1st hour nya.. Then yung next feed nya was breastmilk na. Nagmonitor pa din ako ng sugar post partum for 2 weeks. Sa 2 weeks na yun yung first 2 days lang medyo erratic, pero eventually nagstabilize na. Kaya pagbalik ko sa endo, okay na. After nun di na ko ulit nagmonitor. Hehe. Supposedly may follow up ako kay endo 6 weeks pp kaso di na ko bumalik. :)

Sa mga sis na daiagnosed with GDM na nanganak na, ilang weeks po nung nagdeliver kayo ng baby? Kinaya ba ang normal delivery or automatic CS na talaga? TIA

hindi naman yata automatic CS. but in my case, na CS din ako not really because of GDM but because of age and my BP.  for some reasons, tumaas ang BP ko (nang wala akong nararamdamang kakaiba).
I gave birth at 38w 4d; baby's 8.1lbs.  Medyo malaki din talaga si baby. Pero wala naman naging problema sa kanya (walang hypo, etc).

Started insulin on my 13th week of pregnancy. after i gave birth, nag normalize naman na. bumalik ak sa endo 3months post partum, ok naman. minsan nagpiprick ako (since i still have my kit), ok naman din. 9months na baby ko ngayon. =)

^hospital nag provide sis, chinarge sa bill namin yung 0.5 oz na fm na ininom ni baby. Hehe. Actually baby-friendly yung hospital where I gave birth so they really encourage breastfeeding, bawal magdala ng feeding bottles, formula, etc. pero in cases like mine sila ang nag administer kasi nga prone to hypoglycemia si baby.

Good luck sis damonsgirl. Usually naman ang major issue with GDM moms is yung possibility na overweight si baby, kaya din madalas ma-CS. Ako inencourage talaga ko ng OB ko na mag NSD kaya monitored and weight namin ni baby. Nung around 7.5 months ako nirefer pa ko sa dietitian kasi nakulangan naman si OB weight ko (hindi ako naggain for 1 month) at fundal height (2-3 weeks behind ang height ko sa AOG ni baby). Baka naman daw masyasong bumababa ang sugar ko because of insulin so kelangan bawiin sa food intake. Pero ayun okay naman lahat. Hindi din tumaas sugar ko during labor (sabi kasi ng endo possibility daw yun).

magdala na din kaya ako ng feeding bottle? baka icharge din nila sakin yung bote na gagamitin nila hehe. sakin naman sis i lost 5 lbs nung first trimester dahil sa diet. netong 2nd trimester lang ako nag gain. ok naman ang size ni baby. since pre pregnancy, 9 lbs palang nagain ko ngayong 30 weeks and 1 day na ako. pinakain din ako nung nag lose ako, increase nalang daw ang insulin kesa daw lagi akong gutom.

na eexcite na ako. sana november na!!!

I have been monitoring my sugar this past few days 3x a day after meal, ok naman ogtt ko un lang sa 2hrs nasa boundary na kaya pinag monitor ako ni ob doctor kasi may chance pa daw na tumaas since 26 weeks preggy pa lang ako. Binigyan nya din ako ng diet plan more of green leafy veggies, brocolli, amplaya. Sa fruits naman limited lang kasi sugar sila naturally and sa rice mas advised nya ang brown rice or oatmeal. Grabe ang hirap sundin ng meal plan kasi everytime my hubby and i go out kung  anung food ang nakikita ko gusto ko kainin so di pa kami nagtatagal nag aaya na lang ako umuwi kasi nalulungkot lang ako hehe. Kapag sumusunod ako sa diet plan na binigay ni ob ok ang sugar ko but kapag sinusunod ko ang cravings ko haissstt medyo tumataas ang sugar ko kaya better to be obedient na lang kesa ma-praning kakaisip at nerbyosin kapag tumaas ang sugar!! 😩😩😩

I was diagnosed with Gestational Diabetes. May history yung family namin with Diabetes but ngayong 2nd pregnancy lang ako nagkaroon. Buti nalang na charge sa HMO yung Endo check up ko. I have to monitor my blood sugar levels 4 x a day until i return to my Endo next Tuesday. I still feel blessed because kanina sa Makati Med, nagbibigay yung Diabetis Center ng Free Accu-Check. And when I bought the strips sa Mercury drug store, FREE naman yung Lancets. So, nakatipid talaga kami.

I really hope that by next week, maging ok na yung bloog sugar ko para hindi na ako mag insulin.

hi mga sis! sana may active pa sa inyo dito. was diagnosed with "mild GDM" last week and was asked to monitor my blood sugar. Sa FBS ako bumagsak, 92 lang dapat pero 95.6 yung akin.. been monitoring my sugar for 5 days and for the first time, lumagpas ako sa limit ng 1 point, lol. nag 141 ako 1 hr after breakfast kanina. Ang kinain ko 3 slices of wheat bread with tuna mayo, lettuce and cucumbers tapos maraming water. Huhu. Ilan ba talagang cups of rice ang katumbas ng 3 slices of bread? I just checked and magkaiba yung sinulat ng endo ko at ng nutritionist. For the former, 2 slices = 1/2 cup of rice while sa latter, 3 slices = 1/2 cup of rice. haaay. sana naman hindi ako mag insulin, nakakapraning kasi kung kelan 3rd trimester na saka ang dami kong issues.

^sis depende sa bread, pag white bread 2 slices is 1/2 cup ng rice kung calories ang pagbabasehan.

1 hr after meal ka ba nagchecheck? Try mo din magcheck 2 hrs after. Sa pagkatanda ko dapat almost FBS level na sya pag 2 hours later para maconsider na normal
