    @KayzB, because my GD was well controlled with insulin injections my bub was born at 37+2 weighing 6lbs (2.7kg). I had high blood pressure as well though which can impact on how nutrients cross the placenta to bub.

    I actually found the finger pricks hurt more than the insulin injections.

    @Cevapa, I loved Milo too but it had to be a snack in itself as one cup of milk with Milo was almost 2 whole serves of carbs.

    I found Calorie King really helpful in terms of what and how much I could eat of various different things. http://www.calorieking.com.au I had to stick between 1-2 serves each meal otherwise my levels would be too high.

    So had my appt and I'm on the strict diet dr doesn't think I'll need insulin atm.
    But I just wanted to check if my levels are low should I then be bumping it up with something or just leave it?

    So confused

    Highest I have had after a meal is 5.4
    When I first wake it's usually around 4.4
    Even when we had a naughty meal of kfc on the night of being given everything / before I started the diet it was only 5.6

    I would have thought they're good numbers. What does your dr say?

    Not sure how far along you are but as the pregnancy progresses the placenta inhibits insulin more and more so your numbers do go up...be ready for that, it's nothing that you're doing wrong.

    I guess if you're feeling a bit unwell or a bit "low" then you could try having an extra serve of carbs at each meal.

    I'd have thought starting with lower numbers is a good thing.

    Another unfortunate one who has to join the club. I was all ok before the pregnancy. I do glucose test once a year due to family history. Feel a bit unfair because sister didn't have it when she was pregnant. Anyway, this doesn't come out as a surprised anyway. I had glucose test at 16w+ after weaning of steroid. Fasting result was ok. Random was high. Still not as high as when I was on steroid, though. Now, officially with GD after GTT.

    how did ur dr monitor it?

    Hi, just saw this thread and thought I would share some food ideas for those with gestational diabetes. I had none of the risk factors but still ended up with gestational diabetes while pregnant 😣 I'm a huge sweet tooth and struggled coming up with alternatives to curb my cravings. Here are some suggestions:

    - fresh strawberries with cream
    - slice of chia fruit loaf (bakers delight)
    - vitaweets (sesame seed were my fav)
    - milo with lots of milk

    I looked at the GI rating of all the foods I ate and found this the best way to manage. My son was born at 40w3d at 7lb2

    I don't eat sweet food and yet got it.

    I am wondering if u go private, how does your OB managing it? Mine was sort of known very early on. But nothing was recommended until the official GTT.
