What are the symptoms of this? I started about 230 when I first got pregnant, and now am about 240. I worry about this as well.

When I was pregnant with my DD almost 5 years ago I had G/D. It went away as soon as I had her. My prepregnancy weight was about 230 lbs. I managed to loose a ton of weight and at delivery was 214 lbs.

Every since then I have had what they call "Impaired Gluclose" which means that I am not quite there, but very very close to being type 2 diabetic.

I am now 20 weeks pregnant, 37 and starting prepregnancy weight of 224 lbs and FULL BLOWN G/D diagnosed at 8 weeks. Insulin dependant and everything again. I am praying also that this will go away once this little on is born and I can hold off becoming "Type 2" for at least a few years anyway. It is inevitable that I will become type 2, but as long as I can try to do everything in my power to prolong the inevitable I will.

I hope this helps.
