I found out i had gestational diabetes on 12/18 and have been monitoring my glucose levels for a week. They are all over the place!!!!! I can eat the same foods on different days and i can get numbers in the 120's and then numbers in the 180's.
This is extremely frustrating to me and stressful. My doctors are having me monitor for another week and then see if something more needs to be done. I trying for a vaginal birth after a cesarean and im afraid if i dont get these numbers under control i might lose that option.

It may be that the stress itself is effecting your numbers. We
all have ways of during things that relax us. Whatever yours
are do them now. Ant thing that will help you be calm. Go
for a walk, read a book. Whatever will get your mind off the
numbers. Follow your food plan and stay in touch with your
diabetic team. I'll keep you in my prayers.

I know stress is a big problem in your life right now. But its also the most exciting time in you life, your giving life to another human being, and you have to calm down and take extra good care of yourself and prepare for the little one that's on the way. Your pot of gold is at the end of the rainbow. So relax and try to get things under control, and good luck, I will keep you in my prayers, and please keep all your friends up to date on your progress.

I know stress is a major part of your life right now, but that alone can make your blood sugar elevated. I think all of us have had days when we eat the same thing as another time, and have different result. Please try to be as calm as you can; come here any time. None of us are doctors, but you can unload some of your stress here.

I know when I get stressed out, I will write, or get a book to sooth my mind and my blood levels stay down. Go to my website and read the poems from my book. Sweet Inspirations For The Soul. and relax. Watch your starches and you r sweet intakes. I hope this helps you. God Bless!!!
