Hi there, Am I the only one who finds the title of this sub forum a little confusing as gestational diabetes is the term for those who get diabetes during the pregnancy but did not have it before hand. Nevermind I assume its for anythign pregnancy related I'd really like to hear from any other pregnant ladies who had diabetes prior to pregnancy and how they are getting along. I struggle to get my blood sugars within the target levels, if I try to get it low enough I go too low and if I try to stay out of hypo-land then it goes too high! The diabetes centre have admitted that the diabetic midwives are not experienced enough to deal with me as they are not dafne trained, so I am finally seeing a dsn after weeks of speaking to midwifes who don't really seem to understand me. I have found my appetite changed a lot since I got pregnant, whereas before I was basing my diet around vegetable and meats (fairly low carb) and avoiding starchy foods all that's gone out of the window now as the old foods I was eating make me feel sick and its only bland starchy things like bread and potatoes that I can handle (think little junior inside me will be a fussy eater!). So I have had to relearn DAFNE to ensure I inject enough to cover my carbs, problem is I am so scared of having high bg's that i am often overcompensating and going hypo on a daily, sometimes twice daily basis. Is there anyone out there in a similar boat? Perhaps we can help each other!
