    Just introducing myself. I'm Andi and I'm married with 2 children. I had gestational diabetes with my son (but not with my daughter who was born in October 2013). I was all clear after giving birth in October 2015 and was then diagnosed in March 2016. Being tested to see if I have type 1 or 2.

    Hello:)

    I hope you're not waiting too long for your results. Have you given bloods to determine your diabetes type?

    Whatever the outcome, you will have plenty support from those around you and also here on the forum:)

    Thank you. Grant, I've got an appointment in 8 weeks and will have blood test for that.
