11:02 pm - Newbie here :)
Hi, I'm 22 weeks today and about a month ago I began the GTT process. I've been diagnosed as GD (I was insulin resistant before pregnancy and on metformin, which they took me off immediately when I got pregnant). At the moment, they have me on a very regimented diet which includes way more carbs than I've eaten in many a year, and I do weekly glucose labs (I get a fasting, eat breakfast, and then a two hour draw). I've always had trouble processing carbs and so dont' eat a lot of them but my nutritionist is insistent that I have to eat as many as she has prescribed when she's scheduled them.

Just wanted to introduce myself and say hello :)

My numbers have been better since I started their eating plan. I may not like it all that much but if the numbers continue to be better, I'll keep at it! And we did talk about my discomfort with all the carbs--i agreed to give it a try to see if it helps keep my glucose stabilized over time. so we'll see how it goes and make changes as needed to maintain a healthy, steady level.
