sorry i didn't get back to you sooner but i unfortunately had a miscrriage over the weekend.
But i can tell you about my past experiences.
I have two girls and i had GD with both of them. With my first it was diet controlled, they were going to put me on insulin but my liver functions test came back extreamly high so they induced me instead that was at 36 weeks. That only side affects of that was that she was born quite small at 5,4oz.
My other pregnancy was not monitered very well and they didn't do the glucose test until i was 30 weeks so my levels were all over the place so it ended up being controlled with insulin. But was still hard to manage and i ended up in hospital to try and bring the bsl down. But because of my cholestasis i went into premature labour at 35 weeks. That baby was born 6,7oz very sick with imature lungs and other complications though fortunanety after a few weeks in intensive care she got better. I did notice that when she was born that her body was all out of proportion with one fat arm and one skinny and so forth. But after a few days that settled down as well.
The dr.s told me that her immature lungs and disproprtiond look was because of the GD.
I was only 8 weeks this time round when the GD was diagnosed but since i have lost the baby that is no longer an issue, except it looks like i will have GD in all my PG's.
My family has alot of diabetes in it so i guess that is why i get it so badly.
Do you have it in your family tree too?
I would love to hear you storie!
