Hey there I also had gestational diabetes and a iron deficiency. I was able to control my diet I have to admit I did cheat a bit but if I had big meals I would try to take long walks right after. It was hard at first but you get use to eating less and actually eating healthy. My baby weigh 7lbs. 10oz. I do have to say for me it sucked to check my sugar since I had to do while fasting and two hours after every meal.

I have gestational diabetes, I was told I'd be induced at 39 weeks max just incase my baby does get big. I'm 33+2 now and she's measuring fine and I haven't really changed my diet, my sugars have all been finev

Its reassuring knowing that it doesnt have to be that bad.my sister and friend had it and they had terrible experiences so it scares me a bit. I understand not eating a ton of pasta and stuff like that. Thats not hard. And easy on starched its the amount of fruit and dairy i can have that gets me. Thats one of my cravings! Milk! Grr
