My MIL who works in a doctor's office kept telling me that the GD meant i would definitely have a big baby and "they" wouldn't let me go full term, so I could expect an April baby (I'm due May 13th). People have this idea that GD is the end of the world, but my doctor assured me that as long as it's diagnosed early and managed, I should not be overly concerned. She said i should expect my baby possibly within the week before i'm due, but more likely within the week after because it's my first baby. I'm managing my GD with diet though so I don't know what the difference being on insulin makes. She did send me for a growth ultrasound to get an idea of how big my baby is, but I won't find out the results until next week.
I have gd. I am due saturday, I got a csection on the 21, not because of gd. cause they cant and wont do a breech vaginal. (i wanted a natural birth and fought to the last to try to get it. putting off the csection till 40+4 was a win at least) the baby i am told is big, yet if she wasnt breech, dooable. 8-9 pounds as of today. study and learn, fight for what you believe in, yet know when to give in. good luck.
