We are having a girl! I am still in shock.

I had my appt yesterday and it went really well. She was happy with all of my numbers. I finally figured out the trick to getting my fasting number down. Apparently for me, popcorn works. I had tried so many things and I am totally shocked that that works for me, but for the last 4 days I have had it around 85, so I won't complain. It was between 97-105 with everything else I tried!

They are giving me ONE WEEK to get them under 90 or they say I have to go on medication! Can you believe that! That is harsh. What do they expect it to...
Those numbers sound good to me! I don't really know what is good though for sure. I am still trying to decide how mine are. I have been testing for a week now and so far my 2 hour numbers are all under 120, actually they are mostly in the 90's with a couple around 107 and a few in the upper 80's. My fasting numbers are still around 100. I am anxious to go to the OB Thursday to find out what they say.
You have a lot of the questions I do. Middle of the night snack hasn't worked for me so far, but I just started that, so I don't know. My daily numbers are great. I am actually shocked by it. My appt is on the 28th and I am curious about what my OB will say about it. I just don't see how I will be getting it below 90.

I can't help but worry about it because I know its not what my OB wants. She wants it under 90 and I am not getting close. Today it was 100. I have tried the exercise and the mid-night snack, so I am at a loss. I am going to go back through...

I decided to splurge right after lunch, and my number was 150!!! Holy heck! I can't believe that made sooo much difference. oh goodness! Those are...
Well, I got it down to 97 fasting with the late exercise, but obvioulsy that is still bad. Tonight I will try a handful of almonds or something in the middle of the night. I feel good to have gotten it from 109 to 97 at least though. I'm headed in the right direction I guess.
