I had GD with my last 2 pregnancies. I was able to control it with Glyburide for my fasting # and strick ultra low carb diet...I'm talking I used the low carb wraps but couldn't eat bread, fruit or any starchy veggies. I ended up eating higher fat, raising my cholesterol because I was so limited. After the last pregnancy my blood sugars were borderline.
I have been able to bring my A1C down since with weight loss and exercise. A surprise pregnancy this time around. I'm guess I'm around 5 weeks? My sugars are really high. Yesterday my fasting was 120. An hour after a cup of coffee with a little skim milk today it was 151.
I don't want to use glyburide anymore, I've ready is can exhaust your insulin supply earlier. Thinking I may request insulin this time
I'm just so mad that this is happening so early this time. Anyone else have this happen so early in pregnancy?
Hey, I'm actually your mommy guide. I have diabetes type 2 that did not onset until the day I got pregnant the first time. My second pregnancy I knew I had it, and I skipped metformin and glyburide and went with insulin. I eventually got an insulin pump. I was happy that way, things were so much easier to manage. I controlled my sugars - they didn't control me.
I understand how you'd be mad. GD isn't supposed to start this early. But it's not anything you did, it's not even your body's fault - it's that **** placenta! It's pushing out insulin resistance hormones left and right. You did everything right. The placenta is a living being, and sometimes it just does not cooperate.
