  • I had that too during my pregnancy. They didn't give me any type of treament I just had to check my blood sugar. Eveything came back good but they just kept telling me I had it.

  • I was put on insulin with my first pregnancy and they almost killed me 2 days after the baby was born by giving me insulin. My body reverted back after I had the baby. It's NOT a needle like giving blood or getting a shot. You do what you have to in order to survive and deliver a healthy baby. You CAN do anything you put your mind to. Fears are only bad if you let them control you.

  • I passed the second test but it's awful. The orange stuff is so sugary it burned my throat and they wouldn't let me take sips of water to wash it down. Hopefully you won't have to go farther than 2nd test.

  • I had this with my son... controlled it all with diet changes... and checking my blood sugar often... it was a piece of cake.. .ok, more like a low carb, no cake thing... but not so bad after all. If you have to do the insulin thing ask for the pen... the neddle is so small you won't notice it!!
