Normal to have checkup twice a week after 32 weeks due to gestational diabetes?

Hey everyone! Nice to meet you. I would like some opinions and advises please. I am 32 weeks and have gestational diabetes. Because of this, I have to do checkup twice a week instead of the normal once a week. And this includes ultrasonic once a week... So I was wondering for those who have GD, did you also have to do checkup twice a week when you reached 32 weeks? and I know even though they told me there is no research that ultrasonic affects the baby, but I am still worried. So please share your thoughts and opinions everyone. Thanks =)

One of the side effects of having GD is that baby can grow to very big, yet still be underdeveloped internally. So my guess is that the twice a week check is to make sure that this isn't happening with your baby.
