Well sounds like you're eating a pretty good diet carb wise... you could maybe try some different brands of bread and see if you react better. It's great that pasta doesn't spike you! I think I remember pasta was a lot better for me than rice or potatoes... or maybe potatoes were good. I can't remember. Breakfast is a tough one if it has to be quick. I hope the Dr gives you some help and maybe your team can give you some new ideas to try. Are all your meals cause you to go pretty high? Or is one particularly bad? I remember I couldn't drink milk in the morning, it spiked me. Oh and fruit, strawberries I think are a good fruit if I remember? I could never do anything like granola or muesli, even like 1 tbsp would shoot my numbers up! So I would do plain greek yogurt with strawberries for breakfast sometimes and that was ok. The greek yogurt has protein which helps keep glucose levelled.

Saw the dr yesterday and I am now on insulin 3 times a day. Started with just low doses so hoping that will be enough to settle things for now. I know things often get worse as the pregnancy progresses so will see how things go. Off to see the obstetrician later this morning and hopefully get a scan to check on bubs size.

Aw that's hard to have to move to medical management. But on the plus side you will be able to eat!! I heard the insulin injections are actually not even as bad as taking your levels lol!! Jsyk the estimates on ultrasounds can be like a full 2 lbs off on weight estimates so :/

Yea the injections aren't too bad. The finger pricks hurts more for sure. so far my bsl have been better except for my lunch time ones which are still over so might have to increase the dosage tomorrow. Been feeling soooooo tired these days though and haven't been sleeping well so I am hoping the weekend will let me catch up a little. The scan yesterday showed baby is about the average size for this stage of pregnancy but a scan in 3 weeks will be a better indication of birth size. Also the hospital said their policy is to induce at 38 weeks which means this bub will be very close to Christmas. My birthday is the 29th and my daughters the 30th so hoping we can avoid all these dates. Maybe boxing day they said.

Ugh, I have my 3 hour test in the morning. I have to be at the doctors office at 7am since the lab is only open until 11am. Kinda weird but whatever. Had a high protein lunch and dinner and little sugar all day. Really hoping I pass my 3 hour...

Well did my 3 hour test this morning. First hour was a little rough but after that I felt normal but hungry. Now I am just tired but that could be from waking up at 6am. I should find out Monday if I pass or not. Fingers crossed!

I passed!!!

Levels were normal and I am so happy! I hate needles so the thought of giving myself shots was really making my anxiety so much worse. Cant believe I had to wait all weekend to find out but I am so flipping happy!

Thanks! Im still going to watch my carb and sugar intake since DS#1 was a big baby and he was early (almost 2 weeks). Im going to talk to my doctor about inducing at my next appt since DS#2 is already measuring 1 1/2 weeks ahead.
