hi jm
It should be in normal limit if you have no complains or no diabetis.
General & Family Physician Dr. Mohammed Tauseef's  Response
Hi J.M, Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum.
The ideal Blood Sugar level during Pregnancy should be 70 to 130mg/dl before meals and less than 180mg/dl in less than 2 hours of your any meal. So in your case, it should be between 70 to 130mg/dl if you check it 2 hours after your Supper.If the sugars are fluctuating you should be seeing your Gynecologist. Go for regular brisk walks daily for 30 to 40 minutes, get adequate rest and go for regular follow up.

All the Very Best and Wish you Good Health.

I am five weeks pregnant and started to experience spotting. Then I had a small gush of red blood. I m scared. Could this be normal? Last night I had sex, could this have caused the blood. In my previous pregnancy this was the case. I m not sure what to think, but afraid of having a miscarriage which I ve never had one before. What should I do?

Hello Doctor. My name is Ruksana khanam Happy, Age 29 I m form Bangladesh. I ve been married 5 years ago, I m pregnant now about 29th weeks. It s my second pregnancy, my first pregnancy was miscarriage about tow and half years ago. I have diabetes and high blood pressure. At present pregnancy, there was a light bleeding or spotting at the beginning of my pregnancy it was still about two weeks, that time I went my local doctor for consult & my doctor were prescribe me some medicine like... ( Inj: Levemir flexPen 100 U/ml ) for one times. ( Inj: NovoRapid Penfill, 100 U/ ml ) for two times. ( Cap: Microjest 100, Generic name is: Natural Micronised Progesterone ) for two times. ( Tab: Progynova 2 mg, Generic name is: Estradiol Valerate) for one times. ( Tab: Ecosprin 75, Generic name is : Enteric Coated Aspirin BP 75 mg ) for one times. ( ForMum, Generic name is: Combination of Iron with vitamins & minerals ) for 2 two times. ( Calorate 740, Generic name is: Calcium Orotate 740 mg ) for two times. ( Sardopa 250, Generic name is Methyldopa 250 mg ) for two times. After the treatment it became good and all of the medicine still continue. And some of my problems are still happening like leg cramps, fatigue, skin rash and itching, depression, and sleep less at night. I have some question to you that I was taken so many medicine from my early pregnancy and continue till now. Are there any risk of me & my unborn baby for taken by those medicine? I especially want to know from you about Progynova 2 mg tablets, because I found it through the internet it is not safe in pregnancy. How many weeks should take progynova 2 mg tablets in pregnancy? Is it safe or not during 29th weeks of pregnancy? Can I continue this tablets? My doctor said it will continue till end of the eight months of my pregnancy in my condition. So doctor what should I do in this situations? Please describe me your opinion, Can I stop or not progynova & others medicine in this situations of my pregnancy. I m very worried about the matter. Please inform me as early as possible.
