Trying out the diet…

Thursday, I started my (official) journey to a A1C that is within baby making range.

The standards my endo gave me were to be as close to 6% as possible. The blood glucose goals she gave me were:

  • Fasting: 60-95 mg/dL
  • One hour after meals: <140 mg/dL
  • Two hours after meals: <120 mg/dL
  • Bedtime: 60-99

Right now, these numbers seem more than a little intimidating to me. After eating my blood sugar soars over two hundred almost every time.

I do know that I haven’t really been watching my carb intake (I count the carbs…but then I eat A LOT of them), and my eating schedule is all over the place. I think if I can decrease the amount of carbs I take in at each meal, and try to stick to some semblance of a schedule, it could help me.

Today, I took my dog on a two hour walk, and since I stopped running in August it felt good to get out and get some exercise. When I returned from my walk, my blood sugar was 105 (down from 180 at the beginning of the walk).

Does anybody have any other tips that might help me out? I’m trying to get my numbers within the BG goals for pregnancy so that it is not a huge shock once I am pregnant.
