Blood Sugar Levels For Pregnant Women With Diabetes

Whether you had diabetes before you got pregnant or you developed diabetes during your pregnancy, you'll need to keep a close eye on your blood sugar levels.

You're eating differently because your body needs more energy to help your baby grow and be healthy. And your changing hormones affect how your body makes and uses insulin. In the later parts of your pregnancy, you may become more insulin resistant, so blood sugar builds up to higher levels. How often should you check your blood sugar? Pre-existing diabetes: Before and after meals and before bedtime If you are pregnant and have type 1 diabetes, your doctor might sometimes ask you to check your blood sugar in the middle of the night, around 3 a.m. You should check your fasting urine ketones every day, too.

    Were Pregnant!!..but what is a normal reading for blood sugar?

    Let me start from the beginning...
    My girlfriend is not diabetic, but has her whole life had an irregular cycle.(sometimes 2.5 months apart), she was told she could not get pregnant without fertility drugs. So she went to another Dr. and she told her that her insulin was high. Huh? (I dont understand that and i have been on insulin for 24 years) ,so she put her on glucophage which she said it would regulate her cycle. It did and after the 1st time, I got her pregnant. My questions are what is a normal bloodsuger range for a nondiabetic woman and what is it when she is pregnant. We have tested it and found it vary from 80 to 122 so far, do you think she will have to take insulin?
    please help

    Her insulin was high???? They put her on meds???? I am a bit lost with the whole concept. Her blood sugar sounds pretty normal. I think I would get a second opinion.
