Hi, Very new here and hoping for help! Have been a diet controlled type 2 for 18 months and now 7 weeks pregnant (not planned!!). I had gestational diabetes with both my other children and was put on insulin with first. It was not a good experience. With my second I controlled my diet and kept the Bs down. Now I'm being threatened with insulin again if I can't control the Bs. I go to bed with a 7 and wake up with an 11! That has never happened to me before. Despite my doctor telling me otherwise, I've restricted/eliminated grains (bread, pasta, rice etc) and upped veg and pulses and anything else low GI. In the past it was the grain carbs that went for me. I could eat fruit till I burst and never have high Bs. Now it seems it doesn't really matter what I eat or how much I exersise I can't get them lower than 6.5. (I walk kids to school twice a day - a good 20mins each way - plus the gym three times a week - and I'm still overweight!!) - Don't want to spend the rest of this pregnancy obsessing about what I eat and how much insulin to take. Any advice? And apologies for going on a bit!!
