I have GD this pregnancy and am now 35 weeks pregnant. At the moment I am controlling it with diet but my doc is talking about starting insulin as some of my levels are high. As the question says - do you test your blood gluecose levels EXACTLY 2 hours after eating a main meal? I often go over 5 or 10 mins from when I have started my meal (so like 2 hours and 10 mins) and was wondering if this can affect my levels?

I used too yes, I'd set an alarm. Going 5-10min over wouldn't have that much of a difference.
Eta, I would take my levels 2hrs after my last bite.

Yep I would set an alarm and take it 2 hours later. I don't think 5-10 mins would make too much difference though. The booklet I was given and the specialist I was seeing both told me to time it from the START of a meal, not the end.

I just tested exactly 2 hours from the start of my dinner and my level was 7.2 (so a little high). I retested 7 minutes later and it was 5.3!!! So quite a big difference!! What do you think? Has anyone had this happen to them before?
