Evaded the Insulin Again

So had a doctor appointment again today, and I've managed to hold off the insulin for at least 2 more weeks. Doctor thinks I'm doing fine. No weight gain, and the numbers are still within his acceptable range and baby looks good. So I guess I'm in the clear??

I don't know. Every time I talk to my mother she tells me that my 2hr readings need to be under 120. Doctor says 140. She keeps talking to perinatologists in her practice and they all say 120 and I should be on insulin. But MY doctor thinks I'm fine and doesn't want to put me on anything yet. So I kind of feel torn. I am trying my best to keep the numbers down. Sometimes I can barely manage under 120 but I get close. So I will just keep doing what I'm doing, and keep the cheating down to a minimum.

Argh! I hate all the stress that this is causing me. I just want to curl up around a huge bowl of ice cream.
