10 weeks along....so far so good. I got my own dexcom now and I am learning things about my BG that are kind of stressing me out.
This seems to happen after breakfast and dinner ONLY---NOT LUNCH--Breakfast is ALWAYS, ALWAYS the worst... (I count my carbs carefully and bolus accordingly). About 30-45 minutes after I am finished eating, I watch my little arrow point upward and take me up like an elevator close to 200 and then it comes back down in 1-1.5 hours. I know this doesn't sound bad, but my CDE told me that I have to be under 120mg/dL 1 hour after meals....ahhh! I just think about what is happening to my baby and wish there was something I could do to prevent it....I think I may be a little insulin resistant in the morning, so I have been taking my insulin and waiting for 45 minutes before I eat, but this just ends up going up close to 200 again anyways....it just pushes it off as long as I waited to ear. I need to talk to my CDE about this, but does anyone have any suggestions? I am on an OmniPod pump too.
I'm sure this was all happening before I got my CGM, I am just watching it happen now.
