  • Iill tell you what My DR said. He never mentioned a thing until I had my yearly check up after I had our son. he said he had yet to meet a gestational diabetes child without some type of "issues" our sons issues were colic, digestion,. chronic constipation, lactose intolerance food allergies. he is only 3 now.. I have met some moms on CM who had healthy GD babies but that was my experience.

  • I had it from 16 weeks on. Its not really that bad. If you cant control your sugars with a strict diest they will give you pills or insulin shots. Your baby will be fine mama. I had to take the pills and my son is perfectly healthy. If you need to talk about it or have any questions feel free to message me :)
