I just got diagnosed with GD (late in the pregnancy, even though I had the signs for awhile). I had passed my previous GD test, but kept having sugar in my urine, so the Dr. did more testing and found out my levels have been high for the last 3 months (not sure how they test for that with a blood test). My question is, how likely is it that I can still have a NCB if I have GD?
I tink you shouldn't have a problem Just try to keep it under control! GD is once case where if you are measuring really big it is possible to grow a baby too big to birth naturally. But - try to keep your sugars good - and your doc will look out for it. It's not likely it will all of the sudden in labour pop up. GL and it is totally possible!
Thank you Kiliki for my first beautiful Siggie!

I had GD with my daughter Leila. She was born without pain medication in a hospital. However, I was talked into/coerced into an induction. I fought off most other typical hospital interventions, but it was a challenge. As long as your sugars are controlled through diet or insulin there is NO reason why you can't deliver naturally. Research more into it and I believe there is a diet suggested too. I'd look more into that. Basically, the more you know the more you are able to advocate for yourself when the time comes that they start talking "Big Baby Syndrome." If you have any questions PM me...I only drop in here every now and then.
Thanks ladies. So far, I am able to keep my sugars within normal levels. I am a bit worried that it was caught so late, but when I went to the doctor last week, he thought the baby was about 5.5 pounds, which still puts him within an ok range, I think. I have an ultrasound with the high risk pregnancy doctor next Tuesday so maybe they will have more info.
And . . . . DUH! I just realized - I don't really know why I asked the question. My mom had GD with my sister and had her at hom 9 lbs 10.5 oz. and she has a petite 5'1" frame. So of course I could do it.
