The local military hospital (where I just had bloodwork done at the beginning of my pregnancy with DD2) called me to tell me that since DD1 was a "big" (in their minds) baby that I would
have GD during my pregnancy with DD2. I wasn't even being seen there, but they still called me around 19 weeks to tell me that, and try to pressure me to come in for the GTT and to go ahead and schedule an induction at 38-39 weeks.
: I just told them that I wasn't their patient, all pregnancy related decisions would be discussed with my midwife.
DS: 8 lb 3 oz, passed GTT
DD1: 10 lb, declined GTT
DD2: 9 lb 9 oz, declined GTT but monitored my blood sugar (mornings & post-prandial) for a week and my numbers were always excellent
Good-sized babies just run in my family and DH's family.
