Any names? We are favoring zoe, sophie, penelope, julien, victor
How are your sugars? Eh could be better, but we are at the beggining stages of pregnancy when sugars go way out of whack. I am staying in the low hundreds, but cant seem to get under 100
Any unexpected challenges? Nope, almost the exact same as my last pregnancy
Any unexpected blessings? We got pregnant on a fertility drug off month!

Due Date: Des was born on 2/23, but I still lurk to see how other GDers are doing!

Any names? DH picked Desmond.
How are your sugars? My sugars were mostly pretty good, although some random unpredictable highs. Haven't checked since giving birth. I had planned on it, but hard to time with a newborn around!
Any unexpected challenges? Not feeling in control of choosing the kind of birth I wanted
Any unexpected blessings? got to have a natural birth despite all the worry!

Thank you Vicki!

Any names? none yet....
How are your sugars? failed my one hour today at 180....
Any unexpected challenges? not yet...........second pregnancy with GD, so I know what to expect...
Any unexpected blessings? it sounds like my Dr. is going to be nice and not make me take the 3 hour......no need really, and I'd rather just get going with testing at home myself. If for some crazy reason I'd pass the three hour, it'd be driving me crazy every week thinking that GD was developing.
SAHM to 4 yr. old sweet girl and 1 year old handsome little man!
JUST starting to think about TTC#3. It will take a lot of courage and prayers!
