    Hiya

    I'm recently diagnosed type 2 though i did have gestational diabetes during pregnancy.

    The numbers they expect when you are pregnant are very strict. under 7.5 within one hour of eating a meal if you can't reach this by diet only then they put you on insulin injections to reach this - well they did with me and other GD ladies i knew.

    My sugar levels after meals even with insulin would often be over 10 after an hour and i have a perfectly happy, healthy 22 month old little boy.

    You will get excellent care and be under the diabetic maternity consultant who will handle all your maternity care.


    Good luck in your journey.
