  • I was diagnosed with Type 2 when I was 6 weeks pregnant. I was prediabetic for 5 years and the pregnancy pushed me into being a diabetic. I joined a website called Diabetic Connect which has been a lifesaver! How long have you been diabetic? I'm not on insulin but after my next check up I have a feeling I will be. I'm having a hard time eating enough calories and carbs while maintaining my blood sugar. I have my good days and my bad days. Sometimes its hard to check my glucose 2 hours after a meal because i catch myself snacking during those 2 hours which can make my glucose less accurate. I dont know if I'm really answering your question but feel free to let me know if there is anything I can do!

  • @plaidgirl28 I have the SAME problem with checking my sugars I am 15 weeks going on 16 and sometimes I find myself if not snacking before the 2 hours sleeping!
    I am currently on insulin and my first week after being on it I did well but after that not so well.
