I was seeing an OB for the first 26 weeks of my pregnancy.  I'm 32 weeks now, about to go see a former midwife, and she has asked what I would like to have done at this visit (love this woman).  She said CRP, and I had to look it up. 


From some quick googling, I get that it is common to be elevated in late pregnancy, but that it might have some GD connection.  Is that the only reason one would test for it then, to get a more comprehensive look at one's GD status?  I don't have GD, though I do monitor my sugars (just cuz I can, a friend lent me the monitor she got during her GD pregnancy), and they continue to bear this out. 


Is there more I should know or understand about it, at least as it pertains to pregnancy?


Thanks for any info you can give me.  smile.gif

Your best bet for getting accurate and up to date info is to talk to your midwife.
