Next week i'm being tested for gestational diabetes as my son was born at 10lb 70z, although i had a great pregnancy with him and nothing was ever detected, had a natural birth and everything was good, because of the size of him they were concerned when i fell pregnant with baby number 2. Anyway, i wasn't worrying myself over it as large babies run in my mums side of the family, however, for the last two weeks, every morning when i wake up i've been getting itchy little spots appearing on my feet and legs. First, a couple appeared on my feet and i just put it down to heat rash from the recent nice whether, but like i said, new ones have been appearing everyday ever since. They only itch in the mornings though which i found strange, and the first ones that appeared have faded down to small red dots, they're now up to a quarter of my leg i would say. So, i thought i would google it and the first thing that flashed up was DIABETES in big red letters! Do you think i should get in contact with my midwife or wait for my glucose test next week at the hospital to mention it? I honestly just thought it was heat rash, and i don't want to waste anybodys time! Help!
