I just found out I failed my 3 hour. I kind of figured this would happen to me as my mom is a diabetic, my grandpa (on my dad's side) is a diabetic and top of it I have polycisitic ovarian syndrome! I don't get to meet with the specialist till Nov 6th! I am wanting and needing info or advice you guys have to get me by until then! I want to do what is best for my baby!! I am already horrified of having a big baby and needing a c-section.
My advice is to listen to your Endo and your doctor.. Don't do to much research online because it will just scare you to death.. And if you need to go on insulin, go on insulin.. Don't punish yourself by not eating.. As for what to eat.. I'd stay away from bad carbs, like potatoes, white breads and regular white pasta.. Eat more whole grains, protein, and salads.. Take it easy on fruits, because fruits have a high glycemic index.. Also, eat small meals and make sure you eat every 2-3 hours..
I had GD with both of my children.. My first was born at 39 weeks and 2 days, weighed 6 lbs 15 oz's and my second was born at 39 weeks and 1 day, and he weighted 7 lbs 13 oz's.. I had both vaginally but I was induced. I was on insulin with both my pregnancies and both of my children were not affected by me having GD.. Even my 2 year old is still petite to this day.. My strength was putting all my fears into God's hands and in the end, He did take care of me and my children..
