I've been testing myself off and on throughout the last year (since I had my DD). Was tested after my daughter, everything was fine except my fasting was slightly elevated....but after breakfast it was fine. I was in the process of switching Dr's, dealing with taking time off work for my kids appts, and my DD has had nonstop ear infections the past 3 months. I finally got to my new Dr. 3 weeks ago, who gave me a sheet for blood tests. Anyway....
New Years Eve I got a BFP....unexpected, unplanned, I'm guessing I'm ~6 weeks along. I am still waiting on my new insurance cards to go to the OB. I've been testing daily, scared of birth defects caused by diabetes. My sugars are high. I'm trying to control them with diet, but with m/s I am having a really hard time, especially with my fasting. Some meals bring me up to 150.
Anyone experienced this so early with a pregnancy after being diagnosed with GD in a previous one?
I'm terrified that I have done damage already with my sugars that high.
I would call the doctor asap, and explain about your sugars. However some diabetics will get pregnant and have much higher sugars in the first few weeks and still be fine. 150 is high, but not to terribly high, and its awesome you are keeping an eye on it, if you weren't I bet they would be higher.
Now until the insurance kicks in and you can call the doctor, just bump up your protein and limit your carbs to keep them numbers down. Make sure you have a snack right before bed, it will help lower your fasting. See if chicken will help with the morning sickness instead of crackers, it is fairly gentle on the belly.
me. after my 1st pg, my glucs were back to normal at 12 wks pp. When I got my bfp in Nov, I started glucs right away, went on night nph insulin a week later, so far don't need insulin with three meals.
since I had gd on insulin last time, they're treating me with my bfp, and there will be no gtt!!!
I was screened at 7 weeks this time since I have had GD twice before. I would see if your doctor will screen you early, especially since you are worried already. When did you check your numbers, one hour after meals or two? 150 is concerning enough to me to get screened early.
