Re: So I have GD

Seems odd to add a bunch of sugar carbs in the middle of the night for high fasting.

Yup, then it is no longer a fasting number. Most likely it is spiking the sugar then followed by a low so the morning number looks good.

Re: So I have GD

This morning I ate a bowl of cereal that was on my approved list and my blood sugar is an insane 192. The highest I have ever gotten.

My worst morning meal. i eventually had to limit myself to 2 eggs and 2 slices of whole wheat toast for breakfast. No fruit or milk sugars in the AM at all.

Re: So I have GD

So I tested right at 8 hours and got 89. If this remains the case for the next two day before my appt I am going to fight going on the meds. If they had bothered to send me to a diabeticist like I asked I bet someone would have told me not to go 9-10 hours before the fasting test in the am.

THANKS!

If you go in and explain that you now have a better handle on your numbers and plan to continue being diligent then I think you have a chance.

I wouldn't introduce any new meals until after your appointment just to be safe.

My hospital had certain rules about the tub too. Luckily I was still able to birth him in the tub.

Re: So I have GD

I think I have a chance too and I'm taking NO chances with new meals LOL

I mean I AM compliant and have had to figure it all out on my own (With all of y'alls help of course) so I think I can talk them into at least another week.

One of the MWs told me that after 36 weeks the insulin resistance goes down so if I can just make it 4 more weeks without meds I may be able to make it all the way.

My after meal numbers have been good and I have even been able to add some more carbs back in. I'm bored to tears with what I'm eating but it's worth it!
