Nope... Not me sorry I can't help. I got it both pregnancies.

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.

I have my test tomorrow first was 16 weeks and passed did my bsl today after lunch (chicken salad wrap, 3 cheese and his cutes and a slice of banana bread) and it was 6.4?? I really don't want it again, it was diet controlled last time it would just be one less stress

My SIL got it with her 2nd DS and had to be on insulin but with her 3rd they tested her around 20weeks then 28weeks and all was completely fine no GD.

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.
