I am 13 weeks along and at my appointment today I told the doctor how weak, fatigued, dizzy, and horrible ive been feeling. It's been confirmed that im very anemic and on monday I have my glucose test. Because my mom, sister, and grandpa all have diabetes (along with how ive been feeling worse as time passes not feeling better) they think I might have gestational diabetes. What a killer man! I seriously dont know what ill do if I feel like this all the way through Aug!

I wanted to know with Gestational Diabetes and Anemia am I a high risk pregnancy?

And let me tell you, im at good weight, exercise, and eat well....so it doesn't matter sometimes how hard you try. Darn genetics!

I am also gd and anemic, was with my first pregnancy also and Yes I was considered high risk.
Once they level out your sugar levels, you will feel a lot better. Did they put you on iron? If not, go get some over the counter, the Slow FE works well.
It's not so bad, it does suck, I'll be honest but I just keep telling myself it could be worse. You are extremly early for them to do a glucose test, so if indeed you are gd, they have caught it very early and you should go on with your pregnancy perfectly fine. Normally they don't do the test until 25-28 weeks because it usually doesn't develop until around 24 weeks, so if it comes back negative, they will probably have you do another later also.
If your diabetes is not weight related and is a genetic factor ( as is mine) there is a really good chance you'll have it later in life also. I was told with my first dd that I would be diabetic with in 10 years, it's been 8 so I'm really nervous that it won't go away after this baby is born.

Hope this was helpful to you, good luck!

gestational diabetes puts you at high risk

I am the "who" when you call, "Who's there?"

I put the "D" in lysdexia

Sanity is a cozy lie.
