I am about to have my third child and was diagnosed with gestational diabetes with this pregnancy. I have been doing really good with controlling my sugars as a matter of fact up until about 2 weeks ago I only had to take insulin before breakfast. Even my fasting sugars were good. But within the last 2 weeks I have had a harder time controlling them especially my after breakfast ones. I have had to dtart taking insulin with all meals and had to up my breakfst dose from like 5 units to 15 within a 3 week period.
My concern is I am scheduled to be induced early next week and 'i want to know if there is anything I should be worried about. According to my ultrasounds he is currently about 7lbs'15 ozand that was on Wednesday. They are estimating him to be about 8 1/2 lbs and I am by no means a small person. So I am not too worried about the size. But is there any other problems I should worry about?
