Any ladies that had gestational diabetes who wouldn't mind sharing their birth stories with me? I'm being induced on Jan. 23rd. Had my ultrasound yesterday (36 weeks) and estimated weight was 7lbs. 4oz. Husband is 6'5" so I knew she wasn't going to be tiny, but wanted to know how accurate your measurements were to reality. Sugar levels are perfect. Been on insulin since week 32. Thanks!!

I was diet controlled GD, baby was measuring big since early in pregnancy. Both me and husband were 7lbs 11 oz. A month before due date they predicted he'd be about 8lbs 10oz. A week before my due date then decided to induce on my due date b/c my body wasn't prepping for labor (no cervical thinning). When I checked in, they felt me and predicted he'd be over 9lbs. At birth he was only 8 lbs 5 oz. The measurements they give you are guesses at best.
