Hi Everybody!!! I have a 3 and a 1/2 yr old boy and was GD during my 28 weeks and controld my blood sugar through diet and little excersice..but hated the pricking part...m 9 weeks pregnant now and yesterday went for my 3 hr glucose test and got my result..fasting was 86, 1hr was 193 (60-190)
2hr was 184 (60-165) 3hr was 120( 60-145). since 2 of my results r high m thinking my doc will say that i'm GD,waiting to hear from her today..but think its so early... i don't know if 193 shud be considered very high...the 2 hr i think i did lot of walking in the doc office since was really stressed out and might be that was the reason the levels did'nt come down...already have started watching my diet and have cut down on carbs..and one more thing m a vegeterian...only one thing scars me is that if the doc says m GD which i think she will i have o prick my fingers for next 6 months..oh gosh...can somebody advise me becaus ei know we can help each other better than the docs cause some of them realy freaks out....during my first pregnancy also my results were not that bad all were in border but still had to go through it....thanks

Whatever happens, you can get through it. I don't know what they will say about that 193...you're right there. The finger pricking does suck though...doesn't it? And the food diaries. Did you happen to keep any of your food diaries from when you were pregnant before? I kept mine so that if I have gd again I can see what my safe foods were.

You can get through this. Hope you don't have it again, but even if you do, it's not the end of the world (even though it can feel like it).
