If your 1 hour fasting was over 200, you have GD. There is no question, you have it. Eating appropriately can make it look like normal, even allow you to have dessert. But that doesn't mean the test was wrong. However, you are correct that automatically insisting on an induction is BS. That is NOT standard protocol. I have type 2 diabetes which is incredibly severe during pregnancy and while I would have to be induced, it would only have been if I went over 39 weeks (diabetes makes the placenta deteriorate pretty quickly). My doctors were really hoping I'd go into labor on my own before then. They did NOT want to induce unless they had to. My blood pressure got out of hand so they had to, but they weren't happy about it.

Yes, you have gd. But you should think about getting a second opinion about labor induction. I personally might think about switching doctors. It sounds like they are going to try to force interventions on you.

Thank you Vicki for my awesome siggy!!
