They keep telling me they hope my baby doesn't die because of my choice (not my midwife, but the ob I saw cause she was sick). I really feel like its just a way to scare me and make them feel right. But I know I'm not endangering my baby. Even though my sugars have been fine in have continued to test and eat the diet and walk several times a day. Just being generally healthy.
I don't know a ton about gd, so forgive me if this is a stupid question. But the fact that your blood sugar is under control--with a carefully control diet and proper exercise--wouldn't necessarily mean that you don't have gd...couldn't it also mean that your gd is just under control?
