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. :)

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.

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.

Hello! New to this group - about 8/9 weeks along and my numbers went from just fine with metformin 2x a day at 500, to all kinds of craziness! Now I'm taking 850 2x plus an extra 500 early in the morning. Just trying to hold out till my first apt on May 4th to see what I need to do to get my numbers a little more stable. Right now I can barely eat ANY carbs without going above 170. My only saving grace is dinner - for some reason that is my low point in the day and I can actually eat normally. :) Any tips on some breakfasts? (Oatmeal is out - half a cup spiked me to 195!)

Hi Valeria! Congratulations!!! I'm in the same situation, had my endo's OK last week. Good luck to you. YOU GO GIRL!!!!
Comment by Valeria on April 21, 2010 at 11:27am
Hi Girls! I just wanted to share with you that I finally got the OK to start trying for a baby!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I'm soooooooo excited, happy, nervous, everything at the same time!. I can't yet believe it I managed to come down to 6.9% with only 6 months from starting pump therapy. It's the first time in my life, after 23 years of having diabetes that I reach this level and I feel really good. Still a bit incredulous that that is actually MY A1c!!! I hope I can now keep it that low for a looooong time, or at least until baby comes happy and healthy! :o) Lots of love to all of you also trying and hoping to get pregnant soon.!! xx
