Jbk21--I am no medical professional at ALL, but your numbers aren't sounding so "borderline" (Not to freak you out, of course, just you did fail the test and your blood sugars aren't steady, so. . . .)
I test at one hour. As I understand it, some people do one hour and some do two, but it seems like us one hour testers are supposed to be under 130 and the two hour testers are supposed to be under 120.
I have worked some desserts in, but I have them either between breakfast and lunch or between lunch and dinner. The diabetes nurse told me that oddly enough, some people can handle ice cream because it is so fatty that it slows the sugar into your blood stream. There are low carb ice creams out there but they have a lot of weird ingredients in them and they aren't considered low carb by my doc (a lot of doctors say to subtract fiber or sugar alchohols from the carb count. my doc says not to, but to count total carbs, that it is more reliable), so the low carb ice cream has 15 grams of carbs and some regular ice creams have 15 grams, too. I just have to be sure to eat it with a protein so I end up having a weird snack like a hard boiled egg and 1/2 cup ice cream! Breads and pastas seem to affect me more than ice cream. I can't have my beloved Rye Krisp crackers anymore (even though the carb count was fine, I spiked to 150 afterwards). A GD serving of pasta or rice is 1/3 a cup, so that seems pointless to me to even bother.
I also have to be careful with veggie heavy dishes, because veggies do have carbs. I'm allowed 30 carbs at dinner. Cup of broccoli has 6, cup of corn has 28, a slice of bread can have 20 so it does really add up.
Other topic-- restaurants. Sadly, the easiest restaurants to eat at right now are chains because they often (in California they have to) have a book of nutritional information. If I'm at a small restaurant I order salad with chicken or shrimp. It was actually really fun the other day when my grandma took us to the Red Lobster (which also owns Olive Garden, sure they have the same thing), and I asked if they had a diabetic menu or carb information. They brought me a fat book with all the nutritional information. I found a lunch dish that was rice, shrimp scampi and grilled chicken for 34 carbs and was so happy, but then the waitress said I could sub the rice for any side, so I I chose broccoli and the meal went down to 6 carbs-- so I got to have a cheesy biscuit, too. Never been so delighted at Red Lobster!
