I just took my 3 hr GTT on Wed., and will find out what the results are tomorrow.
I was diagnosed with GD when preg w/ Hannah, and my OB at that time was pretty conservative, as well. He was itching to induce me from 38 weeks on, and I really had to fight him to leave me alone until 40 wks, 1 day. But my sugars were terrific, never above 125, and I never actually felt like I had GD. But I followed the diet plan and monitored my sugars just like instructed. Hannah, who was predicted by OB and the u/s to be this huge baby, was only 7 lbs 12 oz...at 40w1d. Hmmm...
Anyway, I'm more nervous about being labeled "high risk" and all the crap that goes along w/ that, then about actually having GD.
Hope you can keep your sugars under control w/o insulin. That does make it tough. I hope you can talk to your OB and avoid an unnecessary c-section.
I know I found some great info on living w/ GD last pregnancy. I'll poke around online and post the links when I find them.
