I had gestational diabetes and my OB wants to re-check my blood sugar tomorrow. This means I will have to fast -- no food or water -- from midnight until my appt at 9am, then I drink the yucky glucola and have 5 blood draws over two hours
My question is whether this is going to screw up my bm and bfing of my 8 week old tomorrow morning? I will take DD with me to the appointment and she usually nurses at about 6 am, 8 am and 10 am, so she will most likely eat while I am there. Should I try to pump tonight to bring some ebm with me in case she doesn't like me in my dehydrated and over-sugared state?
Did anyone else to go through this?
