Induction and GD A, E & W's mommy 4 kids; 1 angel baby; Bulgaria 15357 posts

Wondering when you were induced if you had GD and if the level of control it was under had any bearing on the induction week?

I was diet controlled with my first, they wanted to induce me at 39 weeks. With this baby I take Glyburide and they want to induce me on my EDD.

I was diet controlled with my first two and induction for GD was never mentioned but this time I'm insulin dependent and it's not working, we keeping up it with little or no effect despite the fact that I have hardly any fruit or carbs in my diet. My doc first mentioned 38 wks which I'm ok with since my babies seem to like coming at that week anyway but I'm concerned that our inability to control it with insulin will have him trying to evict baby sooner

In your situation I'd induce at the earliest you can. I'd rather have my baby come a little early rather than something happen, you know? With my first I was told if I can't control my sugars they'd induce me earlier than 39 weeks.. I was never given a specific week.

I feel like I could wrap my head around 37 weeks but I was reading some similar cases where doc opted for 36 wks and that has me nervous considering that GD babies tend to have a harder time with breathing

I was induced with my first two around 38 1/2 weeks and everything went well! My 3rd baby came around 31 weeks due to severe preeclampsia/IUGR baby... she was breathing on her own the whole time and now I am pregnant with my 4th :) ! I am on insulin for all 4 and its well controlled :)!
