I failed my 1 hour test back at 28 weeks (just by one point), but had a previous bad reaction to the 3 hour test so my ob has let me monitor my blood sugar instead of doing the 3 hour. I have been monitoring and all my numbers have been great (my doctor has said - she's sure I would have passed the 3 hour test based on my numbers) though I eat a very low carb diet naturally, so that makes it a little complicated. My fastings have been in the mid 70s and postprandials were 100 or so and go down really quickly.
However, out of nowhere this past week (I am 36 weeks right now) my fastings have climbed up to the mid 80's, though post-prandials are the same. My diet has not changed but I am not exercising nearly as much as I was because I have had pubic symphysis problems that prevent me from swimming and walking much, so it may just be that my exercise had been keeping my numbers down.
I know my doctor had said at one point that the endo she works with puts people on insulin if they can't keep their morning fasting number under 80, but that seems really strict to me.
I am a little hesitant to tell my doctor unless they get over 90 because I know she will want to either send me for insulin and / or induce at 39 weeks and take my baby away from me for blood sugar testing at birth etc. Especially, if mid 80's really isn't that bad, I don't want all the interventions.
So, is mid 80's really that bad? I have read in some places that fasting numbers are okay until 95. Anyone know anymore about this? I definitely don't want to put my baby at risk but feel like unnecessary interventions may be doing that as much as not doing anything at all considering how little time I have left.
Would LOVE some input. Thanks!
