I failed my 3 hour glucose tolerance test. I am waiting for someone to come out from behind my curtains and say, "just kidding".

This perplexes me. I didn't have GD with my last two pregnancies. I started this pregnancy healthier than my last two. I was exercising and eating very healthy and controlled. I was overweight (size 10) but not obese by any means.

This has easily been the most miserable pregnancy of the three symptom wise though.

Off to the diabetes educator to learn how I will manage it. My concerns don't lie in how this will affect my quality of life. My concerns are for our son and the dangers it poses to him.

Everybody has their own way of doing things and raising their children. No one way is better than the other. The end product will be the same no matter what path you take, and never let anyone make you feel otherwise.
