Here we go. Since I was diagnosed w/ GD when I was pregnant w/ my daughter they were looking for i this time around. They made me take my 1 hr glucose test early (11 weeks) which I failed (180). So they sent me for my 3 hour and I passed 2 of the 3 hours. The 1st hour was the one I failed. Even though I passed the still classified my as having GD and now have to be followed my a perinatal dr. w/ ultrasounds every month and faxing them my blood sugars once a week for the drs. to review. Well I am following the same diet that I did when Iw as pregnant with me daughter, but thus time around my numbers are borderline or above 120. I faxed my sugars on Monday for review and I have not heard form the specialists. I was told that if they need to talk to me they will call re: the sugars. This time around I am always STARVING!!!!! The real hunger started about a week ago. I don't know what my deal is, but I am about to lose it. I have lost 5 pounds since the start of this pregnancy which ,my ob says is ok. I feel like complete crap and I can't imagine what the baby feels like. The specialist obviously doesn't seem worried that my sugars are borderline or high, but I am. the highest it has been is 149. I go for my specialist appt on friday. I am just at a loss on what to do. I just want a normal meal. Don't know how I am going to keep this up till the end.

I am really sorry you are struggling with this. I know that they don't get horrible concerned until your blood sugars are over 180. But 140 is a little high. I would maybe talk to them about some insulin so you have a little more freedom to eat more. I wish you the best of luck, I know it's tough.. I'm a type 2 diabetic but I am on an insulin pump so life is a lot easier now.
