I agree with MSBRANDI... I also was diagnosed with GD late... Its managable, but make sure you dont cheat! My son was born 9lbs 8 oz because of GD. He was also 5 weeks early! He was the biggest baby in the NICU (Nusery Intensive Care Unit). Take care of yourself and also watch it after the pregnancy because it can put you at risk for Type II diabetes later in life or GD earlier if you have another baby.

Goodluck with everything! And just look forward to your little bundle of joy coming soon!

I had it with the quads as well. I won't say its no big deal...just that it certainly doesn't have to be. They will moniter you, and just do as your doc says. They didn't even have me make any major changes, and my pregancy was about as high risk as you can get. I failed the first test (in spades in fact because the nurse failed to tell me not to eat) but the next couple showed my blood sugar levels were only slightly elevated. Believe me, they will let you know if things start getting out of hand. Its VERY common. Please, don't get stressed...easier said than done, I know. Just want you to know that its not horrible news.

Thanks for all of the words of wisdom and support. I go to the diabetic educator tomorrow, so I'll find out what kind of diet I'm supposed to be on. DH was surprised that it took so long (a week) to get me an appointment if it's a pretty important thing. I've been trying to eat better~ so we'll see if I've been choosing the right foods or not!

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
