If you had gestational diabetes, how was it managed?

Did you have to take medication or were you able to manage it with diet and exercise? Did you check your own blood sugars and what were the parameters?

I know doctors sometimes do this differently, and I'm curious what your doctor did.

  • I had to monitor mine. Test blood first thing in the A.M. (fasting) and then 2 hours after eating. Limit bad carbs, eat more veggies... stuff that we all should do anyway. Yes, I was able to control it w/diet and excercise. I was fortunate - it didn't turn into diabetes after I delivered.
