What should my blood sugar levels be while pregnant

my levels have been all over the place and was tested yesterday to see if I've got gestational diabetes. I'm so scared my baby will be a diabetic!!!! Can anyone tell me things I can do to help?

  • 83 when you wake (fasting) and under 120 2 hours after a meal. I failed both of the tests because my sugar rises after I wake even when I don't eat. GD isn't that bad. You just have to watch what you eat.

  • I had gestational diabetes. They wanted under 90 for fasting and under 120 2 hours after meals :)
