Ok, I have a question for you off the subject of the quiz...were you able to control it with your diet the 2 times you had it? How were you able to not have it with the other 3 babies? I plan on having one more baby after this one and I would really love to not have to deal with this. I was able to control my first one with diet but this one I am having to use insulin and it has been very tough. I work out and watch my diet but nothing has helped this time around. I hope you don't mind me asking.

Have you had GD? I am on my 2nd pregnancy with it and all of my doctors have said that it will not put my baby at risk of being diabetic. Yes, their blood sugar is tested but it is just a routine procedure.
