    I could count on one hand the amount of times my fasting level was under the limit. I also had many readings over 7 with meals. I was put on insulin at 30wks after trying diet from 28-29wks. My insulin was put up every second day until 36wks then once a week (by 10) from there. I was on 55units of Lantus overnight (started on 6units), 22units of novo at breakfast and 12 at lunch (started on 4). My bub was born at 38+6 and was perfectly healthy, no effects from high levels.

    Have spoken to the diabetes lady and we are going up by 2 for my night time insulin( 30 units) everytime I get a high fasting and today will be starting novo for dinner and lunch (3 units).. She has settled some nerves and ensured me we are watching it closely so that things don't go wrong.. That's such a relief to hear your bub was born healthy all people seem to do is tell the bad stories, but so nice to hear that even with high levels bubs can still be fine we should find out when we are being induced tomorrow now either way it's not long thanks ladies it has calmed me down a lot

    Has anyone else on insulin had their levels suddenly drop.. My hospital has asked me to come in for 24 hour monitoring I am 37 weeks booked in for next Friday to have bub but in the last 2 days my levels which have always been very high and hard to control have dropped dramatically, last night we had take out naughty I know but it was a very big day and my levels were normal when normally they would explode.. Why is this I'm worried it's cause down things wrong??

    I had big drops which resulted in my Levemir dose being reduced by 10 units. My diet had changed a little but I think mainly because I started taking acidophilus tablets.

    Hi everyone, I'm new to this thread. I am 34 weeks 6 days, and just found out yesterday that I have GD after 3 GTTs. Baby is already in the 96th percentile and weighing over 3kgs. Have docs appoint and diabetes nurse next week to learn more. But looks like I'll be meeting my little girl earlier than expected.

    @kookika, welcome! Wow, not long for you to go now. re the GD diagnosis. Hopefully the diet won't be too much of a change for you, and only for a month or so.

    My OB has said to me that he will most likely want my bubba out when I hit the 37/38 week mark, depending on size. And my diabetes dr said she aims for babies around the 3.5kg mark. I have a growth scan in 3 weeks time and then another at 36 weeks.

    Do you have any queries at this point? I might be able to offer you some advice from my GD experience.

    I admit it took me quite a while to get my head around it. I was shocked at being diagnosed with it TBH as I'm within normal weight range, eat healthily and exercise regularly. Go figure! Oh, well, it has meant that I'm not tempted to indulge during pregnancy, so hopefully that will mean I get my old body back relatively quickly!
