Answer: Hi dear, Glucose tolerance test of 308 is dangerously high and confirms of diabetes.i am not sure if you had undiagnosed diabetes prior to pregnancy or not.if you never had sugar issues,then this could be gestational diabetes.Diabetes or sugar during pregnancy is though a common but at the same time controling is equally important.normal sugar level post eating should be below 140 mg/DL. Fasting sugar should be below 100. Few life style changes can bring back sugar balance. Eat smaller frequent meals instead of larger meals.this will ensure sugar balance throughout the day. say no to all forms of sugar and avoid refined food. Whole grains and proteins which are slowly digested can raise sugar slowly.prefer brown rice over white rice.oats and whole wheat are preferred.exercises can be very beneficial during such cases too.keep monitoring sugar level. Uncontrolled sugar could make larger baby and preterm labor.Also refer the healofy app for daily updates on baby development and growth,as well as pregnancy care.it also gives you enormous info on post delivery baby care and diet.donot miss out!

Answer: Sadly you and your baby might have to face serious health risks due to chicken pox at this stage.You are at a high risk of pneumonia yourself.Past the 20 week mark your baby may have a slight risk ( risk is higher upto 20 weeks) of congenital varicella syndrome-skin scarring,eye, brain ,limb ,GI abnormalities. Your doctor will prescribe you antiviral oral tablets which you will have to take to keep the infection under control.It is safe for your baby.
