    i had GD, it wasnt so bad in the end honestly, i just cut out sugar, and went easy on the carbs, and i checked my sugar when i wasnt feeling very well. i did not have a big baby at all he was born 3 kilo 170 grams, i was induced at 40+3 though because that is the policy where i live for mothers who go over 40 weeks with GD regardless of the estimated size of the baby. wishing you a happy last tri!

    3-10 is actually considered normal here... 7.5 is about the average of someone who doesn't have GD... Im surprised that they give you guys such a tight chart to go by.
