Do you have a fear of gestational diabetes? Does it make you want to eat healthier during your pregnancy?

i do not fear it because i went through it with my first pregnancy. i'm taking my 1hr glucose test tomorrow and expect to fail it, we'll see about the 3 hr. it does make you eat a lot healthier, you're definitely a lot more concious about what you're eating instead of eating anything and everything you want.

Yes!  I didn't have it, or anything close to it with my first pregnancy and I probably don't this time either.  I already eat pretty healthy and work out frequently, but I'm still scared of it.  I have mine tomorrow too.  What are warning signs anyway?

Not afraid of it because I have had it now 3 times.  I eat right normally & work out too.  I also have no history of GD in my family.  It just happens to some people.

The diet always works for me...and keeps me away from pregnancy cravings.

there anren't any real warning signs and it really has nothing to do with how healthy you are. i eat pretty decent and i'm not overweight. diabetes also does not run in my family but i still got it last time. we'll see if it gonna happen again! nothing to be afraid of though, for most it's diet controlled.

 No fear.  I get it everytime I am pregnant.  It does make me eat better and exercise, keeps my numbers under control just by changing a couple of things.  I have had no problems from it.

most women do not have to do the shots.
