I ask this because this morning as soon as i woke up i tested and got a 96 . 15 minutes later i got an 89. Now that a big difference in my book. Ive always had a hard time waking up, so maybe i should wait 15 minutes or so before testing....thoughts?

I usually check mine after my shower right before breakfast. That is a big difference. I know if it were me, I'd never check it right away again! That's probably not the "right" answer, but that,s what I'd do.

I know right? Ive always had a pretty sensitive system when i first wake up...takes me a while. So i think im going to give it 15 20 minutes before testing...heck ill do anything to keep my fasting down and keep me out of a hospital and not being induced!!!

Now I'm curious--I usually test within 10-15 minutes of waking up but I've been getting in the mid to upper 80's. Tomorrow I'm going to wait longer and see if there's a difference....

My nutritionist today told me I should check them imediately when I wake up. She said I could use the bathroom first but to check it right after that, before doing anything else.
