    No, you won't need to take insulin lifelong and may not even need to take it during pregnancy. Most cases of gestational diabetes are controlled with diet alone and don't need insulin injections. I know it seems scary but tons of people manage their gestational diabetes successfully just from changing their diet.

    There's a gestational diabetes group on Facebook that is quite good https://www.facebook.com/groups/gestationaldiabetesuk (even if you're not in the UK, they have a lot of good info and are open to anyone) and they have a website here that has a fantastic level of info on it! https://www.gestationaldiabetes.co.uk/

    It just happens sometimes. That your a1c is good, is actually great news as it may mean it will be easier for you to control via diet.
