Still fighting with the GD

Monday, June 05, 2017

Food is just so hard these days. I'm still having trouble with my numbers. It would probably help if I had been able to sit down with a dietitian. I finally have an appointment with one on Thursday. I have spent all day totally frustrated. I eat what I THINK will be ok, and my number is sky high. I swear, it goes better if I DON"T try to eat well! ARGH. I'm halfway through the pregnancy. I will be so glad to see October. I'm gonna see if there's a diabetes challenge to do. I'm part of the dragon team this time too, so we shall see how that goes. *sighs* I just want all of this under control. And I want to quit sticking myself. It hurts!

    Yeah, diabetes in pregnancy is tough. The placenta-induced insulin resistance makes it a moving target, too, where the insulin resistance increases as the pregnancy continues (although watch for a drop right before delivery!).

    What are you eating? I found with pregnancy I really had to limit my carbs to under 30g once I hit about the halfway mark, and space it out so I really was having like 4-5 smaller meals instead of 3 meals and 2 snacks (if that makes sense). I also couldn't do much in terms of carbs for breakfast (when my resistance was the highest), with dairy being the absolute worst then (even if it was only a small little greek yogurt the carbs would shoot my sugar up).

    It is hard to maintain levels while pregnant. The dietitian should help. I am sorry that you are having so many issues this pregnancy. emoticon

    I hope the dietician helps. I am prediabetic, and had gestational diabetes twice. I have to echo Sugar0814's advice. The Diabetes Association has lots of good information that may help you.

    I hope you figure it out. The dietitian should help. Check out American Diabetes Association, http://www.diabetes.org/ It helped me when I was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes. Make sure you change your lancets, poke the side of your fingers & don't use the same fingers all the time. emoticon
