It all depends on the person. My numbers started going wacky in week 7! ;) But I did hear from my doc that the bigger the baby gets the harder they will be to control. But I don't think there is a specific week that causes the problem.

Thanks all. I too thought it was weird. I'll be sure to "just say no". :-) I know others have posted about this question, but I can't seem to find the posts: when can I expect my insulin needs to start rising? My A1c's have been ridiculously good through the first 20 weeks, and it seems this week (a day after leaving the endo's office) my sugars are climbing... I'm nearly 21 weeks as of now. It's disconcerting to see the numbers, though I imagine some basal rate changes will help a lot.

That seems weird to me, too!

I agree, Tziporah. It's a mistake. I was seeing one of my doctor's partners one day at the beginning of Trimester 2 and he said something about a GTT and I laughed and told him I could tell him now that I didn't "tolerate" glucose well. I didn't have to do one.

Its a mistake. There is no need, plus why would she have you drink a glass of sugar. Obviously, say something and don't bother taking the test.

Anyone have any thoughts on an OB ordering a glucose tolerance test for a nearly-30 year Type 1? :-) I thought it was odd when I saw it on my prenatal record, but perhaps they do those anyhow?

It's funny because I had forgotten that I was addicted to egg salad sandwiches at the beginning of my last pregnancy until I read this discussion. Since I carried twins, I had to eat a decent amount of carbs and tons of protein, and egg salad with light mayo and 2 pieces of a high fiber, whole grain bread worked really nicely for me. When I was carrying my daughter, I ate cheddar and tomato sandwiches with light mayo for breakfast every day! That also worked well. I am T1 and on a pump so your experience might be different but lots of fiber and plenty of protein were musts for me during pregnancy...I actually still eat like that.

Thanks guys! - That is kinda what I've been trying for, but eggs get SO OLD! ;) Although the boiled eggs on toast gave me an idea - I do love some egg salad! Maybe that might be a easy make ahead solution. :)

Rachel,
I agree with Melissa about avoiding or strictly limiting carbs for breakfast. I like eggs (I'm also not a fan of greek yogurt, but it does work well with my BGs.) Sometimes I make a bunch of hard boiled eggs on the weekend and have two for breakfast every morning. I've also heard of slicing a hard boiled egg on low-carb toast with a slice of cheese.

As for evenings, I find that my BGs are lowest at this time of day, too. This is the time of day when your insulin needs are usually the lowest, so it sort of makes sense. I try to keep my carbs low all day, and then splurge a little with dinner.
Comment by MelissaBL on April 22, 2010 at 6:45am
Rachel, low carb at breakfast with fat and protein is a must. I had a slice of toast with turkey bacon and eggs every morning. The toast (14g) was spiking me until my endo had me add the eggs. She said some pregnant women can't do any carb in the morning at all. Her best suggestion was plain greek yogurt, but I'm not a fan, so I opted to keep my toast breakfast. Most likely, cereals and juices are out for you.
