I´m 29 weeks pregnant and just diagnosed with gestational diabetes. Altho it´s not the best news I´ve ever been given, I could cope with it. But i find taking sugar readings 6 times a day frightening - it´s like an obsessive fixation. And i´m spending all my time worrying what the next result is going to be and then being really depressed when it´s not what it should be. The doctors gave me a strict diet to follow but it doesn´t seem to make any difference - the results are still high. and am exhausted, walking and walking for hours as there is no other exercise available to me. I´d really like to hear from anyone that´s been through the same and above all, to know if changing diet has an immediate effect or is a delayed effect. I´ve been following the diet strictly with no improvements, for 1 week. Is it too early to see results?
