Having gestational diabetes go unchecked or untreated can cause issues for the baby as well. Some women end up using insulin to control it even while pregnant. Along with the insulin, your doctor should have had you meet with a dietician to develope a meal plan. Meal planning is crucial for a diabetic, whether it's Type I, Type II or gestational. Also, if he/she perscribed the pills without having you see a dietician, I'd ask why. Could be your diet reacted with the meds to lower your sugar. although my doc said the meds don't actually lower the sugar, just helps your body regulate it's own insulin.
