I'm just about 34 weeks and have been trying to handle my GD with diet alone. I think I've been doing pretty well. My only number that has been a more consistent issue has been my after lunch number. My fasting number was only an issue when I've had a cold, which is normal for blood glucose levels to rise when sick. The doctor wanted me to take Glyburide, but I said, if anything, I'd be more comfortable with insulin because it doesn't cross the placenta. They started me on 10 units of insulin at night (which I still don't understand since my fasting numbers are ok), but after 4 days I was only seeing negative results. I'd wake up starving and then my sugar would spike after breakfast, so I stopped taking it 2 days ago. The past 2 days, I had one high number (146 after lunch). I spoke to my doctor today and she said to take the weekend of diet only and come in on Tuesday for a NST and to meet with her and discuss Glyburide again if necessary. I have tried to do research, but see so much conflicting info. Does anyone have a good resource for info on Glyburide and it's safety in pregnancy? Does it cross the placenta? Is it safe if I plan to breastfeed? Thanks!
