First off CONGRATULATIONS!!! Next I am sure you probably have already, but just in case be sure and let your OBGYN know about your diabetes, cholesterol and blood pressure so they can keep those checked. My youngest daughter had gestational diabetes with her second child who is now a beautiful 2 year old boy. Be sure and keep a close check on your blood sugars just in case, and always keep your doctor informed with it and any problems you have like your vision. The more information you can give your doctor the better he can help you & It is always best to be safe. God Bless and take care of yourself, you are in my prayers so keep us informed.

Thank you all for your replies, I guess I am just stressing more than i need to, especially since i already had one but i am gone put my faith in GOD just like i did before and things will work out :) I learned that sometimes you have to stop believeing doctors and trust the higher power thats what i did last time when they told me to abort at 5 months along!! thanks again all for the links and prayers and replies…will keep you posted on my progress :)

Congratulations Melanie!
My prayers are with you and your child that your child will be healthy and you will be safe. The mother of my 3 sons had gentational diabetes with all 3 pregnancies. So I know it can be a real worry.

All 3 sons turned out fine - so far.
