well, my results came back and i Have it.

what a bummer! I am not quite sure what this means to me and my pregnancy but hopefully when i meet with my dr. next week i will get some clarification.

here are my results:

fasting 81 (should be less than 95)
1st hour 173 (should be less than 180)
2nd hour 179 (should be less than 155)
3rd hour 140 (should be less than 140)

You should avoid completely complex carbohydrates until you see a doctor.

All refined sugars
most fats.

You might find it better to process your sugars if you take a nice walk after each meal (unless of course you are on bed rest)

and rmember no whine is too great or trivial. Feel free to complain. I know I sure do lol

I just found out also, but have been testing for almost a week now. Before I was able to get to the doc. I started looking up everything I could to educate myself before I went to the doc. My levels were opposite of yours though, I was over my first two readings, just barely, and fine my last two.
I have been doing fine with keeping the levels my doc wants during the day, it is my fasting levls that are giving me a hard time, just cant get them below 90 yet.
