Welcome to the third trimester. I have gestational diabetes and although I'm still learning, I can try to answer any questions you have. I have to go in on Tuesday to learn how to give myself insulin (Ugh!) at night because my fasting tests in the morning are always between 95-110 (the rest of the day my levels are beautiful). I'm not looking forward to taking insulin!

Hi there.
Just delivered my third child in September. Had gestational with my first pregnancy and ended up with Type 2 after delivery. So, I was diabetic with my last two as well. Normally, I take oral meds, but everytime I'm pregnant, I have had to go on insulin.
I'd be happy to answer any questions you have if I can.
