I have GD and my due date is almost 4 weeks away. My doula has recommended that i talk to my doctor about being put on med for these last weeks in hopes that the baby does not grow too big. I am trying to have a vaginal birth after a cesarean so size of baby is really important!
fasting #'s for last two weeks:
2 hours after breakfast #'s
2 hours after lunch #'s
2 hours after dinner #'s
My doctor wants my fasting no higher than 110 and 2 hours after a meal no higher than 140. Everything that i have read has said your fasting should be below 100 and 2 hours after a meal below 120.
I know these numbers don't look too bad, but honestly if they are low its because i either didnt eat very much (for fear of a high number) or probably tested my blood and hour late.
Is it worth it to go on meds for such a short amount of time?
