Franie J asked:
Could someone please let me know about their health and the baby’s after being born after being diagnosed with gestational diabetes?
During the day my glucose level is within a normal range. That’s because I’m taking a morning dose of 2.0 mg of glyburide. However, I have very high blood sugar immediately when I get up in the morning before breakfast. I’ve been told by my physician that the high fasting level can result in a big baby. If babies unusually large, I’ve also been told, they loses weight over the first days after birth. No-one has told me what exactly is big – 11-12 pounds? Anybody told they were having a baby over 10 pounds and then didn’t? I would appreciate any information from someone who has gone through it.
