It sounds like I will have an ultrasound around 36 weeks to check the baby's size. She said it is likely that I may be able to go full-term without being induced if the baby still seems healthy and a decent weight at that point. Apparently, it isn't standard practice to induce women with gestational diabetes at 38 weeks, contrary to what I had read. That was also reassuring to hear.

I had another doctor's visit today. Actually, I met with the nurse practitioner. She's the only one I hadn't met yet and she is fabulous! She spent plenty of time talking with me, asking me lots of questions, and answering my questions in detail. The best thing she said was that I'm doing a great job controlling the gestational diabetes and that she can just tell that I am going to be a wonderful mommy. She knows how to win me over, doesn't she? I also appreciated that she said gestational diabetes is complicated and not as easy to control as most people think. I've found that to be very true!
