Past GD moms :)

With my first son I did not have GD ( I was tested 3 times) but had a macrosomic baby (9lbs 5 oz almost 4 wks early). With my second son I did have GD but didn't find out until my 33rd week. They gave me a week to control my numbers with diet and then stuck me on insulin because my fasting numbers were to high (little did I know I was rebounding till later on). Anyway I really want to stay off insulin and I am hoping by some miracle I don't have GD. I really want to have a HB but with my GD history I am not sure she will take me. So I am going to start out by seeing an OB and meeting with the mw to see what she says.

Anyway are you guys doing anything different yet? I am trying to take in lots of water. Are you already checking sugars? Just curious as to what I should be doing at this point

Re: Past GD moms :)

Due date crashing. This is my third go with GD. First baby I tested around 28w and had then went on insulin pretty soon afterwards. He was 9.2lbs at 37w4d. Second baby I tested around 7w and went on insulin around 30 weeks. She was 8.9lbs at 36w3d. This time I asked for my blood work to be done asap so I tested at 4w and it came up high ( Note that I test when not pregnant due to increased diabetes risk and my sugars have always been perfect, it is a total pregnancy issue for me).

So I have been testing since 4w and am now 10 weeks and am getting super high fasting numbers. I will most likely be on glyburide/insulin at my next appt. Not sure about HB, I am so totally risked out from that it isn't even a tiny glimmer of an option for me. Hope you can get yours though!
