February Gest Diabetes moms???

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
How are things going ? Are you taking any meds or controlling with diet?

I'm 36 weeks 1 day (FEB 9) and am doing diet and 12.5 mg glyburide each day to keep sugars down. I finally gained weight for the first week since starting the diet in early Dec. I am now up almost 12 lbs from starting weight. I see the midwife 2 x week for nonstress tests. I will be having a u/s on monday to check on baby. Just wondering if anyone else was dealing with this and how they are coping.

I'm 37w3d and mine has been diet controlled this whole time. During December I packed on about 12 lbs but that was probably due to my PIH. Between last week and this week, I actually lost a pound so I hope that's over with. At any rate, my numbers have been great and I only have to test every other day.

Hello....diabetic momma here. I am on 1000mg of Glucophage twice a day and 5mg of Glyburide once a day. I go now for weekly NST's, and had an US a few weeks ago and will have another around 36 weeks. My numbers are decent, can be better...I just need to get back on track, dh had sugery and I have been taking more care of him then me. We shall see....I am going to see if I can increase my Glyburide some, I think that might help me out some.
