    Hi @xkayzx Can i just check are you on insulin ? if so are you having issues with your BG levels ? What are you normally eating ?

    As you're pregnant healthy snacks like nuts, chopping up some carrots/cucumber with dips, apples, olives, try soups, and if you're on insulin then bolus for the carbs eaten.

    I'm pregnant too and struggling with snacks! I'm eating vegetables and hummus, little cheeses like babybells and olives. It's tricky since eating salami and such is out of the question and trying to also avoid carby snacks. If I'm really hungry and some cheese won't cut it, I just have to eat something bigger like crackers or toast and just jab for it.

    Good luck with everything and congratulations on your pregnancy! It's tricky but we know it'll be so worth it! <3

    @xkayzx - Hi there.

    Your profile doesn't show your type of diabetes. There's no obligation to do that, but showing it can make it easier for members to offer you appropriate opinions.

    If you would like to show, you cab do that by clicking on your account and choosing from the drop down menu, under Type of diabetes, part way down the page. If you're not able to manage that, just shout.

    I will reiterate you don't have to show it, if you don't want to.

    I've found graze boxes quite useful for snacks, I get one a week and it comes with each snacks nutritional info, means a bit of variety. I'm type 1 but haven't really struggled with highs more lows so lots of snack have been required. Got 2 in my bag at all times. X
