at least to GD LOL! I'm the co-host of the May 2011 DDC am due May 2011 and just found I have gestational diabetes. I didn't have it with my first, but developed it with this baby. Diabetes runs heavily on my mother's side of the family so I'm no stranger to a low carb lifestyle. In fact before I got preg with this baby, I ate like a diabetic to increase my chances of NOT developing type 2 diabetes.
The tricky part now is finding the right balance of carbs to eat during pregnancy.

Just want to say and introduce myself

Hello and welcome!

Unfortunately that is, I'm sure none of us really want to be here, but this has been a pretty supportive group for as long as I've been here, which isn't long, I'm pretty new myself. It's good you have that background knowledge of how diabetes works, hopefully you can manage through the rest of your pregnancy with diet and exercise!

Hi! Nice to get to know you! I'm still working on that balance, too--trying to get enough fiber, fruits, and calories but not too many carbs. It's a delicate balancing act sometimes!
This is my first GD pregnancy, too, but my third child.

Welcome! This is my first pregnancy, and diabetes runs in my family too, so I wasn't shocked, but a little disappointed to wind up here. I also thought I could avoid it by eating well, but I guess you can't beat the genes. hope we can help u through it.

HI! I was just diagnosed last week. Luckily so far my normal diet has kept my numbers below range so it hasn't been to bad, other than poking myself 4x a day. But I'm dreading the day when I have to get strict with my diet watching.

This is my 2nd gd pregnancy, and this one is easier to manage so far-my mom and two sisters had gd, and my mom had type 2 diabetes, so I kind of knew this would be coming, but it still sucks
