@Gelati: i dont need a lot of blood. I tried to notch down 0.5 but no blood coming out so it looks like i have found my lower limit. I'm not sure exactly if slow eating helps. All i know is that glucose level will spike right after eating. That's For 30 mins eating time, 1 hr testing just seems to be too soon. Like tonight, i started eating at 7pm but the left over portion was very small so i decided to make myself a small omelette with a lot of veges. By the time, i finished, it was 45 mins since i started the meal. I'm so sure that the level will be super high if i test basically 15 mins later.
Yes, if diet can't control it, they will put me on insulin. DH thinks it might be a better idea but i read somewhere that it has negative effect on bub after birth. I don't know and will have to ask OB about this. The glucose level problem is known from the start of my pregnancy. I keep suspecting the steroid has messed up my system somehow, although i know some ladies didn't have any problem after they quit steroid. Perhaps i am just more prone to the effect of steroid + genetic.
