Anyone find out they have gd late? I'm 36 weeks and was just diagnosed with it. 3 weeks and I'll be induced unless baby comes sooner.

Hi,

it is not so usual to be diagnosed late (mostly they will not be looking for it).  But there are probably many women who do have it, as insulin resistance increases as the pregnancy progresses.

Stick with the diet and monitoring blood sugar for the next few week to keep excellent control.

Best wishes for your coming delivery.

They put me on a small dose of glyburide which worries me because my blood sugars are on the low side. They are only slightly high in the morning after I eat breakfast.. 130's.

Hello,
it is better to be slightly low than slightly high during pregnancy.
Just monitor closely and take a small snack if you are lower than about 70.
