I am 32, pregnant with my fourth child, and I had gestational diabetes with all of them. At not even 12 weeks, my fasting jumped to 105-122 mg/dl [5.8-6.8 mmol/L], and my healthcare providers feel I should start on insulin. Does this sound appropriate to you? If so, does my having to start so early increase my chances of having diabetes after the birth?

My doctor did a two-hour meal after meal blood sugar an told me I have gestational diabetes. I am concerned that he did not find it necessary for me to do the glucose tolerance tests to determine the diagnosis.

I have gestational diabetes, and a natural, vaginal childbirth is very important to me (if possible), but I would like the opportunity to prepare myself if I am just fooling myself by believing I have a shot. What, if any, statistics are there for women with gestational diabetes being allowed to go into labor by themselves? Can women with gestational diabetes deliver a baby vaginally?
