Dh and I are going to start TTC #2 here in a few months (we are still unsure of a date but right now its looking like Oct-Dec my IUD will come out). Any Idea's on what I should do now to help keep my GD under controll the next time so I wont end up on Insulin again? I'm trying to loose some weight, I know that will help alot, I've lost around 4lbs in the last month and a half or so, not much but its a start, and im trying to drink more water..

You can't really prevent gestational diabetes. Why? Because what causes it is basically your HcG your producing is telling your pancreas to take a holiday.

But what you can do for yourself is lower your refined sugar intake and eat a healthy diet.

I know I can't prevent the GD I just don't want the Insulin like last time, I didn't have GD bad it was just my morning levels were slightly too high after eating breakfast, I just want to start now so its easier to control when I get pregnant

what all did you have for breakfast before. I found that a single slice of toast with a tbsp of peanut butter on it and a half glass of milk gave me a good sugar. Then at snack time 2.5 hours later I could have anything I liked.

How much did your baby weigh at birth may I ask?

He was 7lbs 9oz(the u/s said over 9lbs so they induced me at 39weeks 5days, but i also had PIH).

I would eat Eggs, The peanut butter and toast, sometimes just peanut butter, Potatoes and Eggs, A small bowl of cereal and peanut butter on a spoon, I even at a roast beef sandwich and my BS was over (from what i remember, its been a year now) 160 2 hours later, I would have been scared to test sooner(my doc's and dietitian said to test 1.5-2hours after a meal)
