gestational diabetes questions.....

I have been diagnosed with gestational diabetes. I am currently going on my 36th week. I was just wondering if anyone has experienced any problems with this. Sometimes I kind of slip off my diet, especially with the holiday season. Is there anything, other than a large baby, that I should be totally concerned with? It kind of seems silly that I have to worry about this now with only 4 weeks to go.....

Re: gestational diabetes questions.....

It's vitally important that the dr monitors you very closely, and that you stick to your diet, for the baby's sake.

My co-worker's daughter had gestational diabetes, but it when undiagnosed, and as a result, unmonitored. The baby had lots of problems and had to be fed through a stomach tube. Again, this was an extreme case because she wasn't monitored.

Just be sure that your Dr. monitors you and the baby, and everything should be fine!

BTW, little DJ is doing just fine now, he's 5 months old and you can't tell anything was wrong him.

Love and hugs,
