Assalamu alaikum/greetings, so yeah I failed the glucose stress test. I guess my blood sugar, as measured one hour after drinking the drink you gotta drink, is supposed to be around 130 or less, and mine was around 190. So I had to go back in to get a fasting blood sugar measurement which was 97. Which while enough to keep me off of insulin, was not enough to keep me off of a diet, which I’m now on.
I’m supposed to have 3 meals and 3 snacks a day. I can’t have any sugar, have to limit my starches, and while fruit is good, I guess I’m not supposed to have any fruit first thing in the morning.
I’m also Vitamin D deficient, so I’m taking a Vitamin D supplement once a week.
At any rate, now I’m off to try to find some menu/meal planning ideas. If anyone has any ideas, they’d be greatly appreciated. Alhamdulillah, there doesn’t seem to be any complications for me and baby thus far, and Inshallah things will stay that way.
Inshallah my blood sugar stays under control and there are no further complications.
