Diabetes??

I was just wondering if any of you had an experience with pregnancy diabetes?  I am 22 weeks and went to the doctors today and they told me I have an excess of fluid and thats usualy a sign of diabetes.  I was 15 -20 lbs overweight to begin with and gaining weight quickly even though I'm probably not even eating as much as I should.  I'm worried.  What does this mean for the rest of my pregnancy or my baby??

Did you take the Gestational Diabetes test yet?  If you haven't have them do this for you now.  I was diabetic for my first pg and I followed a diabetic diet.  I cut out almost all simple carbs and watched what I ate very closely.  I had a healthy normal pg and ended up only gaining 17 lbs the whole time and did not have any morning sickness where I lost weight inthe beginning.  Went on to have a healthy 81/2 lb baby boy. I even went a week over.  As long as you follow the diet and doctors orders everythign should be fine--if your levels don't come down then you may have to go on insulin for the rest of the pg.  Diabetes usually goes away after you have the baby.
