Congrats and welcome back! How was labor? Also how are you doing with the gestational diabetes? Obviously you probably don't have it now, but I was wondering if you knew if everything went back to normal. I just got diagnosed the day before thanksgiving >:( this is my first pregnancy too, and I'm only 24!
Yes everything is back to normal. :-) they tested babys blood as well to test sugar but she is fine. Not born big at only 6 pounds 5 0z. She's now 7 pounds 4 oz!!  
And this was my third pregnancy and I'm 25 but it's our last!! Woo lol
