Your right, that was really the hardest thing for me when I was pregnant, is really all of the feelings of guilt and shame when my blood sugars would not cooperate. We do have to realize that we could eat the same thing for 9 months and have different glucose levels every day. I am not perfect either and there were times were it was really difficult to cope with all the ups and downs of it all. I will have to say that my two children were worth all the hard work! Well, most days.......seriously, they are wonderful, but like all, have their days. I think with the cgms and new system of low predictions and high predictions, I have really been able to keep on track with it all. The most important this is to correct any high and do it is often as needed but not overcorrect. THe other thing that has been really helpful for me is setting my missed bolus reminders, especially if I am not using the sensor! If my number is above 100 mg'/dl pre meal, I take my insulin 15 min before the meal. If it is higher than 130, I take it 30 min before the meal. Otherwise my post meals will spike into the 200-240's. If my number is <100, I take it right before eating. It bits to delay the meal, but for me, I can't keep my numbers down if I don't start out "right."
Have you gotten the ok to start trying? I had the mirena taken out in Nov., so I really don't know when things will "work." But, I really would like to get this going, this will be the last pregnancy. I usually like my summer s off, so if things don't happen, I am not sure what to do! Get over having the summer off, as my due date now would be in Sept. Did you get lots of snow? We got dumped on this weekend, 16 inches of beautiful white wet snow. Fun for the kids, but now it is freezing! Thanks for your support! Karen
