I was told yesterday that I have gestational diabetes. Just want to hear from others who have had it. Did it go away? Do you have to cut the sugar all together? Do they induce early? Do they do a c-section? Any info would be great.Answer Question

Jupitdr84 took my answer!
Just wanted to add that when docs suspect a large baby, they are more likely to scare you into inducing. If you induce when your body is not ready, then you have a high chance of ending up with a c-section. A Bishop score is used to determine the likelyhood of an induction working. There is a chart towards the end of the article.
