    I didnt breastfeed ds. I was induced at 38 weeks with him. I will be having a c section this time as my induction with ds resulted in alot of damage and other intervention.

What are they now?
    I was sent for a gtt at 20 weeks all good. I was sent for another gtt at 26 weeks which I failed. I then had to do the fasting one at straight after at 26 weeks failed miserably. My levels were 7.2 fasting 1 hour 8.2 2 hour 8.6.

    I was tested this time at 12 weeks but think that was super early... Fastings are now max 5. 2 hours after food 6.7.

    I didn't breast feed DD for very long, it was really hard to get her into a good position (she had a broken arm as well as Erbs palsy and I found keeping her flat while feeding was less painful for her). We also had a lot of medical appointments and it was a lot easier to have a bottle We'll be trying with this bub, I hope it's successful this time

    As for lunch recipes, I've been having a hard boiled egg, iceberg lettuce, celery, capsicum, cucumber, and two pieces of tip top 9 grain bread, and a small tablespoon of mayo (if I'm extra hungry I bump up the amount of salad stuff). I find it really filling, pretty yummy, and it keeps my numbers down Sometimes I have a small tin of tuna instead of the egg
    My numbers are a bit higher around dinner so I'll be starting the rapid insulin at dinner (as well as the slow release insulin over night).

    Hmm maybe chuck some fresh salad veggies on the side (they won't affect your levels and they make it easy to make sure you're eating enough veggies per day). They're also filling, yummy and you can mix it up by trying different ones
    Also try to add a protein if you can, all my diet sheets have meat/eggs/legumes in the lunch slot

    Yeah there are no proteins I eat other than meat at dinner time. My lunch levels arnt a problem, I'm just bored of the same thing every day.

    Breakfast is hard, cereal gives me up and down levels. Trying porridge tomorrow.

    Indigo I find two and a half weetbix and a coffee is great in the morning.

    Lunch times are hard, sometimes I eat left overs from dinner the night before.. Burgeon bread is good - you can generally have two slices with any filling...

    I have weetbix and a cup of tea, no sugar. This gives me readings of between 5 and 9.5. Stupid GD.

    Weetbix sucks for me now too. It didnt use too. Special k is the only thing now. I have started parking a street away from dd schools to get a 10 minute walk in dropping her off then testing my bsl. That activity seems to have brought my levels down without increasing my insulin. I walk the dogs 30 minutes after dinner too. But im now 36 weeks and tbh I cannot be arsed anymore. So its going to be interesting what skipping the excercise is going to do. Im pretty active anyway during the day but the going out of my way to walk needs to stop.
