    When did you get it second time? Earlier or normal test time?

    Nearly. I was diagnosed with GD at 30 weeks in my 1st pregnancy (normal OGTT at 25 weeks) and I was on insulin from 32 weeks. In my 2nd pregnancy I lost count of my OGTT's - I think it was 16 weeks, 28 weeks and I thought that would be enough for my Ob, but no he wanted 1 more at around 33 - 34 weeks, but I got a 'flu like illness. I had it as late as I could so that he would get the results at my 35 week appt, but I was still a bit sick when I had the test. I *just* hit the 2 hour cut-off for diagnosis of GD. I didn't need insulin 2nd time around and the Endo said it was a pity I was sick as if I hadn't been I probably wouldn't have been labelled as having GD.

    They tested earlier due to having it first time. And yes diagnosed earlier due to earlier test.

    I was right on the border for GD first pregnancy which was diet controlled. Just got my results last week for this pregnancy (currently 28wks) and I passed with flying colours!! Totally shocked as I'd heard it usually gets worse with each pregnancy and had fully expected it this time. So I'm thrilled.

    yep i had it with ds1 diagnosed at 28/29weeks.
    it was diet controlled mainly but my pancreas didnt want to work to well when i was asleep so i had to have insulin before bed cos without it my fasting levels were always high on waking in the morning.
    didnt get it with ds2, i was so sure i was going to get it with him but nope.
    ds1 was 6lb 5oz and ds 2 was 8lb 11oz which should be the other way around as diabetes is suppose to make babies bigger although he was born 1 day before his edd and his brother was born 17 days early so probably why the difference with weight.

    good luck i hope you dont have it this time around.
