need help from someone who has had GD

is there anyone who had GD and wasnt able to get there sugar regulated? did you still have a healthy baby? im on insulin, i follow my diet plan exactly like im supposed too and i still cant seem to go a whole day with good numbers. it is making me so ****** off cuz i know its bad for him for me to be high and nothing i do works! Im 34 wks now and i read that babies born at this time are normally as healthy as a full term baby so im kinda hoping ill just go into labor soon so i quit hurting him. i have been on this diet plan since 7/25 and i have only had one day where all 4 tests were good! i thought today was gonna be another good one and i just took my sugar 2 hrs after dinner and its 34 points higher then it should be! im out of ideas cuz nothing i do makes any difference

Re: need help from someone who has had GD

HI Sg,

Sorry to hear your blood glucose levels are not stabilizing. I think your doctor is the best person to give you an accurate answer to most of your questions. The only thing I can think of is that exercising might help. I have GD myself and I am able to control it with diet. I know that my post-prandial glucose reading is always at least 20-30 points less if I exercise following a meal. Even 30 mins of walking or swimming works great for me...

I know you are concerned about the baby, but I am sure he and you will be OK. Have you had an ultrasound lately to find out how big your baby is???

Take care and all the best.
