I don't have gestational. I've been diabetic for 20 years. All the numbers and info is the same. They want your numbers under 125 2 hr after meals. If you're low (under 70) you may feel clammy/sweaty, shaking, heart racing. If your sugar is high (200 and up usually) you may feel nauseous, extreme thirst, frequent urination. If your numbers are high you need to call your doctor. Mine says 200 is the cutoff to call.
I got diabetes with my first pregnancy from the beginning...I am on an insulin pump...I know they want me like 90 pre meals and under about 140 to 150 two hrs after meals...they should have taught u all this or had u go to a class...its a lifestyle change and takes some adjustments
I've been type one for 21 years now and its not easy. Pregnancy has been kicking my butt. I'm on an insulin pump and just got a new CGM machine to help monitor my sugars better because I have constant lows. Like dropping into the 30s. Its scary especially since I am home alone most of the time. The doctor should give you a range to stay within as it sometimes depends on the individual and their bodies needs etc. Good luck.
Sweets are a no-no. Just try to make sure you have protein with your carbs. Carbs=sugar so you don't want to over do it. Right now I eat breakfast at 7:30am on a typical day one egg two slices of whole wheat and everyonce in a while I will give into a sausage link. Two hours later I check my blood sugars and have a snack. A fruit with nuts ir cheese. Nothing to big. The trick is to eat a healthy portion on time and your snacks on time in between. So 3 meals and 3 small snacks 2-3hrs after your meal. I hope this helps.
