    My daughter was born at 38 weeks and was 8 lbs 2 oz, she was a typical "football player shaped" GD baby. I was on glyburide and my numbers were not very well controlled.....no matter what I did :( My current pregnancy my numbers are controlled much better, but my baby measured 21 weeks at my 19 week scan. But they are not 100% accurate. But I am betting on having another large baby. Pleas this one is a boy, so I expect him to be at least 9 lbs....but I could be wrong.
