So my blood sugars aren’t dipping so low anymore, but they’re higher. And for my fasting blood sugar, they haven’t been below 90 like they need to be. In fact, it’s been hard to get them there most of my PG. Today my OB said to call my endocrinologist and get my evening insulin upped right away. She said especially the fasting being higher makes my risk for stillborn birth super high.
I mean I know that’s a risk with uncontrolled blood sugars, but we’re doing like everything we can to get me in check. My docs are both sure it’s not me or my food – it’s my insulin and my body. So all we can try and control is the insulin and keep my food as what I have been doing.
So God is in control ends up being the bottom line, and my endocrinologist helps, hehe. My nighttime is now up by 2 units and my breakfast time and dinner time is up by 2 units on my sliding scale as well.
I also take a long acting shot in the morning now (have been for a couple of weeks now). So I am at 5 shots a day, and I can’t keep count of how often I end up needing to test my blood sugar. 8 times is a good day.
Going to eat lunch now, and just want to get any “what ifs” out of my head about the baby.
Oh yah, I start my fetal monitoring tomorrow at 9:30 am. That means I’ll have an ultrasound. Maybe if I am really nice they’ll try and see the gender – who knows. Now every week I’ll get to try and find out, hehehe.
Oh and the fetal monitoring lady (Shirley) is the same as last time like I had hoped – she’s in on Mondays so hopefully next week I’ll do Mon and Fri instead of Tues and Fri. She is awesome. So are the other 2 ladies of course – they’re the same folks as last time too.
G’day – I’m sure more thoughts will come my way later…. I plan on doing some scrapbooking today and maybe trying some digital layouts.
