    No only on insulin at night
    My levels during the day are fine

    I started on metformin but that wasn't bringing my levels down either so they put me on insulin instead.

    On a semi related question, how many of you have been told that you need to be induced or likely to be induced? I wonder what other reason for inducing other than the baby might be big.

    I'm being induced in 2 and a bit weeks, at 38+4. Not just because of the gd but also for other problems I've had related to low papp-a levels. My bub isn't measuring big, he's 46th percentile and they're predicting he'll be in the 7 pound range. He has been lagging in growth so they want to take him out a little early.

    if I don't have low ppa, bub grows normally then there is no medical reason to be induced, right?

    I'm not sure sorry, better to ask your gp/midwife/OB

    My dr said I would most likely be induced due to the diabetes

    It could be because gd can cause the placenta to break down early and it's a case of better out than in
