Gestational Diabetes

Arin • We have an 18 month old and are going to start trying for number two soon.

Does anyone here have it??? My midwife tells me I do because I am overweight.

My three hours glucose tolerance test results were: 95, 149, 114 and 102 .

She keeps trying to scare me into getting a glucomiter (spell??). I just would like to know if this is something I should really be doing.

She keeps telling me that with gestational diabetes they have a much higher risk of stillbirth. She does not back it up with facts either.

I am asking because have heard nothing but bad things about her and her practice.
