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 :P

I'm just so mad that this is happening so early this time. Anyone else have this happen so early in pregnancy?

Re: Mad
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.
