OM goodness has this been the most stressful thing I have gone through this entire pregnancy.
So my numbers for my 1 hr test were not far off the cutoff, but they don't care- then came the 3 hr GTT
...this is my first pregnancy by the way.
So I have GD, my daily numbers are great, my DH is WONDERFUL
: at making meals that he and I can both enjoy (if your ever up for it make personalized size "pizzas" where the "crust" is a portabella mushroom...OM SOOO good!!
My problem is my fasting levels. I am now on Glyburide (was on 1.25mcg for 11 days- now they just upped it to 3mcg...it is in mcg right?) and that has brought my levels down from around the 109's to mid 90's. They want me below 90 (which to me seems impossible at this point) I REALLY don't want to be on insulin because we are trying to do a HB and if I am on insulin that is it...no HB for us
I have tried eating something in the middle of the night and it seemed to help once but then after that it didn't...It still didn't come below 90 though, it brought it to 101 (that was before the glyburide).
I think I am doing okay with eating and such but I just feel so lost and sad about this whole thing and I really think they are trying to push me into taking insulin...for goodness sake as if poking a finger four times a day isn't enough.
The only thing i haven't really tried is working out before bedtime- Not for any particular reason other than it's hotter than crap down here in NC right now and anything done outside seems ridiculous- I walk to the car and sweat...Any ideas...sorry so long
