I had GD with my DD and I was just diagnosed with it again with this DC, due end of July. The problem is, I'm doing what I can remember to do, I'm basing my choices on what the nutritionist said to, but my sugars are still too high and now I'm feeling defeated and anxious, as if I won't be able to do it this time - and have to do it for twice as long as I did the first time.

I'm looking for a gestational diabetes group, either on this board or another, where I might find some other ladies who are in the same boat I am. If you know of a group I can join, I would be very grateful!

Thanks!

Hey Headmeister!

I started this a wee bit back and it links to a HUGE thread on the subject.

Are you getting enough exercise? Cinnamon and gymnemna supplements? Those two things have dramatically affected my numbers in a good way...

Here you go...

The first post contains a link to the older thread that is like 50+ pages long, but has tons of info.
