    Does anyone who has gtt have glucose in urine at each antenatal appt?

    I've got another gtt test tomorrow as baby is big and I have had glucose in urine for since 32 weeks.

    I had it in my urine from 28 weeks and more than a trace..unfortunately, mine turned out to be bad gestational diabetes as I was one of the unlucky ones to be put straight on insulin. Turns out Im actually borderline type 2 so thats prob why..

    They will send you for a GTT and then if it comes back that you have GD they will first try and control youwith diet...as long as you dont go too mad should be fine!!

    Like I said, I had a bad case and still had a beautiful 7lb4oz healthy baby boy :)

    Keeo us posted hun xx
