    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.

    I went private and my ob was quiet strict in managing it. He sent me to a diabetes educator and made me test and record my levels 4 times a day. I then had to email my levels to my OB at the end of every week. I was able to control my diabetes by having a strict diet. My OB did weekly ultrasounds from 36 weeks onward to monitor the size and health of my baby.

    I'm struggling to remember (it was two years ago now) but I think it was under 5 when I first woke up and then under 7 when I tested during the day (2 hours after each meal)

    Everyone says two hrs after meal and only my diabetes educator is aiming 7.5 at 1 hr post meal. That's very strict if u ask me.

    Under 5 (fasting levels) and under 6.7 after breakfast, lunch and dinner

    Sometimes I test at 1 hour instead of waiting the full 2 hours

    Hi Ladies,

    Ive told Im a very high risk for GD, Im not sure why or how ?

    I have to do the test at 17 weeks and again at 24 weeks WTF

    So in preparation Ive gone through my cupboard and are quite amazed at the healthy foods which I should not be eating.

    Also Im not a sweet food eater either. I have been eating fruit, which I have now cut back on. Ill be seeing a dietician shortly to discuss what to eat, which will also I will be able to digest as I have lots of scar tissue and lots of Vit deficiencies due to other surgical issues.
