In brief: See below
You will see different numbers depending on what sources you use.
Per american diabetes association (ada) recommendation, these are the goal: using the meter: fasting <95, 1 hr after eating <140, 2 hr after eating < 120. If you use blood draw: fasting <105, 1 hr after eating <155, 2 hr after eating <130. A1c goal < 6%. Your OB probably have a sheet to give you as a goal. Good luck.

In brief: See below
Fasting glucose (in the mornings) should be below 100 (but not below 70).
One hour after a meal- under 140. Two hours after a meal-under 120. Again, not below 70.
