I felt emo too.. controlling diet and have to do glucose test (blood test) every 2 days of the week. Total 7 pokes a day! I have to give up all my fav food and all. You have to drink lots of water and strictly no sugary drinks. You will slim down, that’s the truth! I gave birth in June and my weight now is even lighter than before I got pregnant. 😁 Baby is healthy which is most important. I’m going back to KKH for the post pregnancy glucose test next month. Hopefully all is well. Take care, embrace new changes and be happy.

Don't worry. After baby out, u will back to normal. I had GDM too. Baby is big size in my stomach. Have to Control the foods and drinks I had. My sugar level always above the doctor limit. Doctor gave me medicine to slow down my sugar level. I had delivered my baby, but my diet had stick to what I had GDM. Now I am even slimmer than before pregnant. Stay healthy!
