Good Afternoon!

Hi! I'm Katey ~ Pregnant with baby #1 and due in February!

Yesterday I saw the gestational diabetes counselor and just begun doing the blood tests 4x a day.

My question: Do I test 1 hour after I eat or one hour after I finish eating? Thank you so much. (Sometimes, especially at lunch, I can take up to 35 minutes to finish eating!!)
Many thanks to Mom2*Lauryn*Jacob* for my beautiful siggy.

I had this same question, because I take forever to eat too!!
They say to start timing from the first bite you take.
I don't like that!! I feel like it's not fair!

I envy your only having to test 4 times a day...I'm at 7 and my fingers are NOT happy!

We can do it...but it's sure no fun!

I'm glad I found this question because I've been a bit confused about that, too. I take forever to eat. LOL

I try to time it from the beginning usually, but honestly if I take a REALLY long time eating I delay a little bit. I heard that especially if you are eating multiple courses like at a restaurant with salad before a main course, then you should time it from the beginning of the bulk of your meal. You could get a salad at a restaurant and then not start your main course for another 1/2 hour, so that wouldn't be fair. My doctor has actually never said anything about it one way or the other. I'm not sure they think about these details...

Thank you Vicki!
