Working my way through the mystery of Gestational Diabetes. Thanks to a LONGGG family history of Type 1 & 2 diabetes plus I'm also not at an ideal weight I have been diagnosed with it. I'm trying very hard to eat the best foods, exercise, etc but still my levels were high. This morning before brekkie i was 6.1 and heck even for my fasting GTT I was only 5.8 (and that's after having a very unhealthy dinner that night). Last night I had a small bowl of low GI cereal for dinner and yet it is still high. They told me if my fasting level stays high like that (should be a maximum of 5.5) then I'll have to go on meds. Prob with that - they mean the injections... problem with that - I could NEVER give myself a needle. Hopefully my partner is good at it lol. Anyways - sorry to come and whinge a bit but trying to keep a positive outlook to everyone else is a bit hard when all I'm worrying about is the little one inside of me and trying to do the best for them so they don't come early or get too fat inside there!
