The one with all the Insulin

It’s no secret that I am on insulin again this pregnancy. The only difference being that I have been on insulin since about 12 weeks instead of 30 + weeks. It’s been okay. As okay as it can be, I guess. My sugars were well under control and I felt so in control of this…. then all of a sudden, I wasn’t. In control that is.

They have been creeping a bit too high. Not sky high, but they aren’t in the magic range. I want to enjoy Christmas and food! How I love food. Don’t we all.

I’m trying to get some feed back from my Endocrinologist’s office about what I should do. I’d like to know since I don’t actually see my Dr. again until after Christmas and by that point, I will have indulged. I am guessing that they will say to increase my insulin (which I actually have been doing), I just wonder… How much insulin is too much?

Sorry to hear about needing insulin, especially right during the holiday food fest.

Hope you can get it under control. I was diagnosed with gestational diabetes with my first pregnancy…only to find out when I switched doctors and they reviewed my records, that I did not have it. All that stress and worry for nothing. Grrrr!

Ugh. GD is a pain. I never ended up on insulin, though sometimes I think it may have been easier than me fighting it. THe hormones are a killer. Hope you find out. Or just spread it out and eat little bits all day. That might work.
