Hello, and thank you for your question. I will be happy to assist you. Answers are for educational purposes only.
Let me read your question carefully/
Your 3 hour sugar test is high.
Check your sugars 4 times a day.
Fasting - keep less than 100
2 hours after each meal....shoot for less than 120.
If higher, then you may need stricter diet and therapy.
In regard to timing of delivery....if anything with the testing changes, then it is reasonable to move forward with delivery.
If everything is good, then inducing early is not a problem...however, you should have an amnio to test for lung maturity.
Most likely everything will be fine after 36 weeks, but if the testing is good, then checking for lung maturity before delivery would be ideal.
Testing for lung maturity is easy to do with an amniocentesis. The risk is very low.
The upside is high.
Please let me know if you have any questions and I will be happy to answer them.
Best of luck.

If there is no change then I would prefer to go full term, is that ok?
Also, I would have expected the baby's movements to be reduced if the cord was short, but movements are regular and good.
What is the highest SD ratio before an absence of flow is seen? An induction would be neeeded if the SD ratio is absent or reversed?
Thank you Dr Lawrence , this information is very helpful.
What is the highest SD ratio before?could you give me a range of values for normal, high etc and how it should change in the next few weeks
The dr wants to induce me at 37weeks even without any change in testing, I want to resist. IF there is no change then I'd like to go full term. If I resist is there any risk, as long as there is no change in sd and foetal heart rate.
Thank you, ***** ***** helped. I would like to walk, say 20 minutes a day, is that ok or will it reduce the flow to the baby further? How much walking can I do per day?
Thanks for all your time.
