I'm back to testing my blood sugar for nearly every meal. The protocol I was told is to test 2 hours after I START eating.
Now normally, I wouldn't be hungry an hour after I just ate, but the fact that I am not allowed, makes me hungry! Forbidden fruit, literally.
And by the way, my first reading I did after we discovered that I am gestating a giant was at the upper end of the good range, but still normal and it was after my office's birthday lunch, which included garlic bread, pasta salad, carrot sticks and a few cookies for dessert, so I was probably pushing it anyways. But all of my other readings since then have been back in the low 80's which is where they were back at 10-12 weeks when I first got the meter. And I even intentionally exceeded my carb allotment for lunch yesterday to see what would happen and I was very good still.
I definitely think I should mind my carbs better (oh ketchup, how I will miss you) but it doesn't appear that I have GD going on from my readings.
I should call my bother's wife. She was perfectly fit before she got pregnant, exercised all through her pregnancy, had appropriate weight gain, no GD at all, and was induced 2 days after her due date because they were worried that my nephew was almost 10lbs at that point. They were off, he was only 9lbs 1oz, but that's still pretty big. I wonder how he measured at this point.
