What should be the average blood sugar readings for a pregnant woman who has diabetes?

i was told in the morning it is suppost to be in the 70's and 80's and in the afternoon and evening between 120-130 is this correct? this was what the docs told me to stick to when i was pregnant with my daughter but that was over a year ago. because mine has been in the 180's-200's and that is barely eating anything. i have completely cut out sweets and it still gets this high. seeing the doctor tuesday but just wanted some input till then..... by the way if it matters i am 13 weeks pregnant.

  • This information is correct. My ranges are 60-120 in the morning and 60-150 the rest of the day and trying to keep it around 90-95 just in general.
    Good luck with everything, gestational diabeties is a ruff road, I know I am on it, by the way i am 37 weeks.

  • the reason it is so high is because you are barely eating anything. Try eating more often. yes that is correct. My husband is a diabetic and the range they reccomend is 80-120 . Get that sugar in check momma and if yuo cant get it under control on your own go to the er. They can help. ITS REALLY IMPORTANT! Good luck

  • Fasting numbers- 60-90 mg/dl
    2 hours after eating- 90-120

    If over 150 you should contact your OB.

    I've had it twice now and lost a child to GD my first pregnancy.
