Our expert says:
It is difficult to interpret your blood glucose readings because you don't mention if the first reading was taken in a fasting state. Non-diabetic adults have a normal fasting blood sugar reading of between 3.89 and 5.00 mmol/litre. So if you were fasting your blood sugar reading of 6.3 (presumably also in mmol/litre) was high. If you ate breakfast and it was about one hour later, then 6.3 mmol/litre is a normal reading. If you did not eat or drink anything between the first and the second reading then the second reading of 8.1 mmol/litre is also higher than normal. I don't know who did the second blood sugar reading for you, but if this was done at the hospital then the person taking the reading should have consulted a doctor. If you are still feeling strange and ill, then please go back to the hospital and ask to be seen by a doctor. Because your pregnancy is already far advanced, you may well need to be admitted and to receive treatment to ensure that your pregnancy can be completed successfully.
I do hope that you will be feeling better and that you have a successful delivery.
