Re: I am measuring BIG!
I don't want to worry you, but measuring way bigger than your dates can indeed be indicative of gestational diabetes. Try not to worry too much though, as it sounds as though your doctors are very on the ball with it.
If it is the case that you have developed gestational diabetes, your doctors will keep a close eye on you and will be able keep it under control. It may not be that at all, but I suspect that is what your doctors are considering. GD should disappear when baby arrives, so you should not have any long term complications for you after the birth. Just go along with what the doctors want.. they will do what's best for you and your baby. It may just be the case that you will need closer montioring. I'm sure everything will be absolutely fine. Keep us posted.
