If you were diagnosed with GD while pregnant with twins can you please answer these questions?   Did you have 1 placenta or 2?   How many weeks when you delivered?   What were the weights of the babies?   Were you taking insulin?   If you did not take insulin, did you keep to a strict diet?   Thanks ladies, I failed my GTT and will be starting to monitor, but I've been doing a lot of research and there are some interesting papers out there...
