Anyone have Gestational diabetes and have a healthy baby?

I am scared I go for my 3 hour test and my baby is measuring 2 weeks ahead and is 10 pounds already. Im 36 weeks and I hope shes big because it runs in the family. I want to know if anyone else here has gone through this.

  • I had it with my 3rd. The doctor told me #3 would weigh around 10-lb at birth, and when he was born he weighed in at 8-lb, 2-oz and he was healthy. Good luck on the test!

  • They told me from an ultrasound he was 10lb3oz, i had him the next day and he was 8lb 8oz. They can be so he was healthy as can be. And he is 14 months now and still healthy as a horse :0

  • I've had GD 4 times and have 5 healthy kids. The babies I had when I had GD ranged in size from 7 lbs 7 oz to 8 lbs 1 oz. The baby I had when I didn't have GD was 8 lbs 9 oz!

  • Yeah, totally just an estimate. I should have worded that differently though. What it was was i had an ultrasound at 36 weeks and they said he was 8lb 110z already, so since they gain a half pound a week he would have been 10lb3oz at 39 weeks. When they wanted me to induce they kept saying hes over ten lb hes over ten lb, so i let them and he was 8lb8oz at 39 weeks 1 day..Way off. Every person i know has been guessed wrong. One friends son was said to be 9lb9oz (she had a u/s 3 days before) and when he was born he was 8lb 5oz. Another friend was told her kiddo was high 7s low 8s and she was 9lb 5oz. Its all just a guess :)
