    Gestational Diabetes - Really high reading

    I was diagnosed with Gestational Diabetes a couple of weeks ago. This week is my first week of measuring my levels. I am eating all the right food and being really careful, but find that the only way I can stay under is just to have lots of really, really small meals. I find I am actually hungry a lot of the time in order to stay under, and exercising after every meal is simply impossible at the moment due to my workload.
    Tonight I did splurge a bit and had dinner at the pub for my nieces birthday. I didn't have any birthday cake and only drank water, but did have the bruchetta which involved two pieces of bread, as well as one piece of garlic bread. I knew this was going to be bad, but my reading was 10.2 which really scared me (my highest to date has been 8.2. Has anyone else ever had a reading this high? What is the highest reading you have had?

    Also, has anyone who has previously had GD had daily high readings but still managed to have a 'natural' birth?

    I should add - I am not on insulin as yet. Does anyone know when they decide you should go on insulin?

    I was diagnosed with GD @27 weeks.i monitored my own levels for a week before I was put on insulin. Most readings are supposed to be 4 - 5.3 before breakfast and between 4 - 7 for all other meals. An hour and a half after food. I changed my diet and was still getting high readings. I'm now 32 weeks and Been on insulin for 6 weeks, my baby is very large and I will be induced around 36 weeks. Usually if u change your eating habits and still not getting your BSL target you need help, by insulin. It can all be very overwhelming at first, but once you get used to doing it, it becomes part of your routine. Oh and it doesn't hurt at all. As for natural birth, if you can control your BSL with insulin, there should be no reason why you can't have a natural birth.
