Joining you as well from the Feb. 2010 DDC. I was told my numbers were high with the 1 hr glucose test....I didn't get to complete my 3 hr, I vomited and almost passed out so they weren't able to get the 3rd blood draw. My numbers were still high I believe. I'm waiting on a call from the diabetic educator to set up an appointment time.
I'm also on strict bedrest at home....have been since 18w5d when I had a cerclage placed in my cervix. I'm now 29w4d.
My dad is diabetic so I'm familiar with limiting my diet and taking my blood sugar (I was told I'd probably have to do both).
Our house hasn't been stocked with the greatest of foods lately, so I've asked hubby to stop at the store tonight & pick up some good foods. Any recommendations for snacks? That's where I'm really going to struggle.

It depends on how many carbs you can have.
My fav. snack right now is a small apple, all natural peanut butter, and 1 6 oz. light yogurt. Love that peanut butter!
I also like a quesadilla on a 6" corn tortilla.
A cheese stick and some kind of fruit can be good too.
Glucerna snack bars were also recommended, but I haven't tried them, so I can't comment on the taste.
