Hi there! I don't have it with this pregnancy but I had it with my last.
I was also pretty scared and upset when I first heard that I failed, but really it wasn't bad at all. The nutritionist gave me some good meal ideas and really educated me about carbs and protein and how it affects your sugar. I had no symptoms- was in great physical shape- and at first was frustrated that I had to do this when I felt like I didn't "need" it.
What you will see when you start testing is that some carbs affect you more than others. I could eat bread, but any white rice did spike my blood sugar. Once you see- wow, yes that does make my blood sugar pretty high- it hits home.
For me I was lucky, with following the plan I was able to maintain my sugars and didn't need insulin. My baby measured on track- they guessed he would be 8.5 pounds but came out at 7.2.
The silver lining of the diet was that I only gained 20 pounds total with my son and really bounced back quickly. It also got me into good eating habits in general which I appreciate. I am a huge baby about needles and by the end I was an expert at checking my sugars and maintaining my numbers in my little notebook I carried around.
It got to be that I would have been annoyed had I had it again, but not scared or really upset. I happened to pass this pregnancy and for the hell of it check my sugars once in a while just to see and everything is fine.
Really of all the pregnancy complications you could have its not a bad one- you have control over it and its not the end of the world.
Hang in there! :)
