    I had my 24 week appointment today. All appears well as far as blood pressure and baby movement etc. My urine did show up with sugar in it, which she wasnt too concerned with until she read in my notes about my nan having diabetes, then my mum piped up and said my nans sisters have diabetes too. So now i am booked in for a GTT on monday morning at the hospital. She doesnt seem to think it will show up any problems but sending me as a precaution. Gonna have to find me a good book to read on monday morning whilst at the hospital

    And i got to hear baby's heartbeat again :D Next appointment is at 29 weeks.

    Good luck with GTT tests, better being on the safe side with a family history like that thought.

    I had my 24 week MW appointment today too- It was all fine -didn;t get weighed or have bloods done though which I had expected, just blood pressure, urine test and then measured bump even though it can't be plotted until I'm 26 weeks!

    I had my Glucose tolerence test on monday morning. Wasnt as bad as i expected.
    Wasnt allowed anything to eat or drink other than water from 12 midnight, they took first vial of blood at 9am. Then i drank the sugar drink and a glass of water, and waited two hours and the nurse took another vial of blood.

    Not sure when to expect the results i forgot to ask :roll: stupid pregnancy brain. Does anyone know? Do they only contact you if something comes up?

    Glad it was ok honey. I had a GTT on Monday too!

    They will usually contact you the very next day if there is a problem, so you can be pretty confident that if you haven't heard by now, all must be ok. You can ring your MW to check if you are unsure though.

    I have my GTT on 17th January. My dad has late onset diabetes and I'm fat so I'm classed as high risk. I do check my blood sugar periodically at my dads and its always been fine but if they want me to sit in their waiting room for a couple of hours and drink lucozade, who am I to argue!!
