I just found out today that I have GD
after failing the 3 hour test. Tomorrow they have me starting the 2 hour
GD counseling and I must say, I am a bit nervous about all of this. I
am nervous about checking my blood sugar levels and following the
diet...is it that bad? Also, it doesn't mean I will need insulin shots
unless I can't control it with diet, right? I don't think I could give
myself a shot! When the doc felt around for the baby, she could tell
that the baby was measuring a little a head of schedule. My next
appointment in 2 weeks, they will do an u/s to assess the baby's growth.
I'm just so worried that the baby will be too big for a natural birth. I
know that just because you have GD doesn't necessarily mean you will
have a big baby and need a c-section, but it is a concern. Can anyone
share some more info about GD, treatment, and affects on labor and baby?
