Gestational diabetes... Ish?

So, followed up with doc after a week of tracking my sugars 4x daily. My numbers were good, within normal range. However, because of mom's diabetes and the fact that my diet is pretty different from most, I do still need to continue to track 2x daily and report back every couple weeks... This will continue up to delivery. At least it's down from 4 times daily, right! :)

That's good! I have to report weekly to the dietitian and my OB said they'd back me off testing if my numbers look good after a month. Do you mind sharing some of your diet tips?

Glad to hear your numbers were normal! I'm sure you were relieved. Wishing your numbers stay normal for the rest of your pregnancy!:smileyhappy:
