  • i weight 240 before i got preg and my dr said im normal

    just cause your a bigger girl dont mean you will have it theres more of a chance but my sister in law is skinny and she got preg and had it so dont means you always will just have to eat healthy and work out

  • With my first, I failed the 1 hr test, but passed the 3 hr test. With my second, I failed both.

  • No, I always failed. Hated doing the 3 hour test.

  • I was pregnant and fat both times (200 and 186 pre-preg, respectively), and passed the 1-hour glucose test both times with flying colors.

  • I was 225 when we found out we were pregnant with our 1st and I was border line on the first test and so I had to do the three hour to make sure. I passed that one and had a very healthy pregnancy. With this one which is my second I passed right away and Im not 237 so I dont think the size matters it just depends on you.

  • Size doesn't really matter. I've always been between 110-120 pre-pregnancy and I've had gestational diabetes with 3 out of my 4 pregnancies.

  • No. Your glucose test has nothing to do with your weight.

  • If you are having a girl, she has a higher than average chance of having PCOS

  • just eat as healthy as possible. i've read it's good to try to eat more low glycemic index foods and less high GI foods.

    i'm worried about the same because i'm really overweight. i told my mom and she said she was really overweight with all 4 of her pregnancies and never had GD. :) she's really thin now so hopefully i can do that :P
