    @bubbasmum, thank you. We are very smitten with our little boy.

    It's awesome to be able to eat normally again. Although I'm already dreading the six-week GTT to make sure that my levels are still in fact normal...

    thanks everyone for your input. Went to my info session today and the results I got on the phone were totally wrong. Was actually 8.6 (cut off 8.5) so I was just over. Fasting rate was 4.8 so clear on that.

    Just tested after my first meal and only 5.9 so i'm confident i'll be able to stick to things. Also excited to have found a sugar free low carb ice cream that I can cure my sugar cravings with so i'm feeling positive about things and there will be plenty of options for me to choose from.

    Another positive - for me anyway - I only put on 10 kgs during pregnancy because I couldn't eat any naughty stuff. To look at me 2 weeks post birth, I'm almost back to pre-pregnancy size. 😄

    Just bumping this thread

    I've just started monitoring my levels and no matter how healthy I eat or how close I follow the meal plan given my levels are still over the 6.7 mark

    When I was first diagnosed (Saturday) my dr did the prick test (after breakfast) and I was 5.7. Today I ate the same meal (less 1 slice of toast) and my level was 6.8

    I just dont get what I'm doing wrong

    I just came on bh to find some info, your timing couldn't have been more perfect!
    I have just found out I have gd but have my appt with the endocrinologist on Friday. Not much help atm as I just bought a tester but it didn't come with strips (wasn't mentioned to me that I need strips too damn pharmacist)

    So hopefully the navigating if this will be ok, from what I've read its slit to take in

    @Nala9000 I got everything given to me at my appointment. When you have your appointment you'll get a form that you fill it in for diabetes australia and your strips and needles are cheaper than just getting it without the form/card

    Good luck with your appointment
