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!
