Have to control your carbs and sugar intake. Do some light exercises, jogging or walking after meals. No issues with delivery, both mummy n baby are safe. Just bear in mind, to listen to your gynae and follow whatever instructions given. Some can be controlled by diet, some might need to jab insulin.

Hi... gestational diabetes occurs due to high carbs and sugar diet. It may cause pre-term labor. Please read this article for preventive measures https://sg.theasianparent.com/keeping-gestational-diabetes-under-control

Hello I’m not a fun of sweets but I eat white rice since it’s a staple food from my country and I have no history of diabetes. will eating a lot of white rice can give me gestational diabetes? I’m 24 weeks and will have gestational test next month...

It’s more common if you have a family history of it. But as long as you keep to a normal diet (no excessive sugar or carbs) you’ll be fine.

I had GD but was able to deliver my baby normally. As long as you manage your GD properly, smooth delivery is possible.

I also had GDM was on metformin and insulin. I delivered baby via csect as baby's weight is 3.4kg and i am a small size mom.
