Passed the GTT at 28 weeks, well within range. Decided to buy a blood glucose monitor the other day on a whim as I've been feeling so tired and have thrush that won't go away.
Results for today are:
5.2 before breakfast 8.2 1 hr after breakfast (whole meal toast, 2 eggs and some ketchup) 4.2 - 2 hrs after breakfast 6.1 - 1 hr after lunch (avocado wrap) 8.2 - 1 hr after dinner (chicken salad)
The idea was just to monitor it myself this week and then show the midwife next week just in case I've developed GD after the GTT. Looking for some advice on these numbers from those with GD, would really appreciate it!
Sorry hubba, I've just seen in your second post that your hospital wants you readings even lower.
I find that with my hospital that they are just casting a very wide net, I was diagnosed because my fasting level at my GTT was 5.4 (post glucose-solution levels were fine) and my readings haven't blipped since then no matter how much carbs/sugar I eat, in fact I'm 34+3 and my readings have gone down in the last few weeks (never above 7.0 after food) and I'm constantly starving, yet I'll still be induced on my due date.
BEE there does seem to be a very heavy-handed approach to GD in many areas, I'm amazed that you're being induced despite your GTT and subsequent readings being fine! That's why I refused testing this time - once the GD label is on, your options are removed I think the OP's approach is very sensible
