    GD how long after meals do you test?

    I often find I am starving if I wait the full two hours..... Do you all strictly wait till the 2 hour mark?

    When I am really hungry I test earlier, if it is o.k then I will eat something and if not then I wait the two hours.

    You can eat zero carb snacks while you wait ie celery lol, there must be other stuff too though if you google

    Thanks! I am finding it so hard I am a SAHM with a 14 month old so I am used to just grabbing food on the run at short intervals....usually every hour so this having a "meal" and then waiting to test is doing my head in

    When I was testing when I was pregnant the diabetes educator said to test earlier but to also make a note how much earlier than 2 hours I tested.

    I do wait 2 hours each time. I have the oppposite problem than most in that I am not a grazer. its killing me trying to eat 5 small meals throughout the day! I'd rather have a big breakfast, a decent lunch and a small dinner.
