I took my 1st 1 hr test right before 25 weeks. I had to switch docs at 26 weeks (because he doesnt deliver babies anymore) So at 28 weeks I was sent to take the 1hr again! I failed it. So then I was told I had to take the 3 hour test at 30 weeks. Which I went 1 day before my 30 week make. And well my numbers came back abnormal. So now I have GD! My doctor told me I have to do a stress test and ultrasound weekly. As well as getting blood drawn. And I also have to see an endocrinologist... What was your experience with GD? Because this is the 1st time I have had this problem, I have 2 perfectly healthy children and never had issues before. So now I am nervous! Everyone keeps saying I will have a HUGE baby, but at 29 weeks she was measuring at about 2 lbs 14oz! So thats a typical size for 30 weeks from what I was told. And they are estimating that Madie will be about 7- 7 1/2 pounds at birth. Now that would be smaller than average cause my son was 8lbs and saughter was 7,9! So should I really be worried I will have a bigger baby? Or do alot of people just say the baby will be alot bigger. I am freakin out here and would like to hear some stories from others that delt with it or are currently dealing with itAnswer Question

I had GD with my 1st pregnancy. I had to watch what I ate, test my blood and eat frequently. I was referred to a dietician who helped me figure out better choices so my sugar levels wouldn't spike. DD was born at 41 weeks weighing 7 lb 14 oz so she wasn't big which means I did an OK job.
