I'm supposed to go for GD testing end of Dec/beg of Jan, and I'm sort of freaked out about it. Everything I've read about GD is alarmist, and what I've heard from friends does not make me look forward to this test. I've finally gotten over being afraid something will go wrong here, and now I'm worried about this.
Is it really necessary to do the testing? Is GD common? Does it go away after the baby is born? What, if anything, can I do in the month before the test to help? I'm really freaked out at the thought of taking it the week after Christmas, when I KNOW there will have been too many baked goods and candy around to resist!
Or is this really not a big deal and I shouldn't be worried?
I think one of my biggest fears is that if I turn out to have it, the baby will be too big, and need to be a c-section.
