I had a nice stress free night. my dinner PP was 102! middle of the night 103 & fasting was 98 (no different than day before). Then breakfast was 187!!!! Same breakfast as usual. Can't figure that one out. The call nurse started lecturing me on 1 carb for breakfast. I told them it was just not possible, they are going to have to figure out something else, because 1 carb for breakfast I am crashing before 1 hour is up already. So I am stressed out today again
Yesterday I felt good that everyone acknowledged that the standard stuff wasn't right for me and today I felt back to square one again. blah.
I haven't been good about my floradix but I do have it. We have also been using cast iron. I am good about taking the iron pill, which I switched to night time a couple weeks ago. Between that and eating a lot more meat I think it is helping.
And talk about hormones/sugar stress. It's turning me totally nuts! I feel so neurotic and I'm normally just so chill. Silly placenta! I am looking forward to the peace a couple of you have found with the treatments. I need it back!
All the info on insulin needs dropping & NSTs & IVs is very very helpful, so thank you
I hate the IVs and anything in my veins. yuck yuck yuck. My baby is quite active as well but it is still not easy to fit twice weekly visits into a very busy work schedule. I don't think I can get fired by my OB but they did mention yesterday (I have to travel this fall until 35w6d!) that if I was out of area and gave birth after 36w they don't cover it. Fortunately I'll be back home by then.
Rhysmom - I realized from reading another thread that our DDs are only 2 days apart. How fun! I am also jealous of your ltd weight gain. They tested me early for GD (my skinny half sister had it too) and passed the screening - barely - but they waited really long to screen again.
I'm a little ticked that they didn't do some of these tests on me about a month earlier - when my weight gain really spiked for no reason whatsoever. But hey, they didn't have me in for an appt since MAY! (except for the ultrasound, which was with the sonographer). I wish I'd had all this sorted a month ago - I think I could have avoided a lot of the weight gain.
Anyways, I was also hungrier - much hungrier - a month ago. Less hungry now.
Oh one more item I forgot from yesterday - they told me to sign up with medicalert, which I did. Not sure if it is standard or because I'll be traveling a lot. Anyways, I wanted more of a cuff style so I figured I can get the same info engraved on a different style medical bracelet. it made dh happy at least.
Another question (when will this reply end? ever?) = can your blood sugar be higher if you haven't had enough water? I realized when I took my vitamins this morning I hadn't had any water in the middle of the night.. I usually drink nearly a liter overnight (very dry climate).
Ok I am done for now. You guys are all so great to the newbies
I'm sure it will all be old hat to me as well in a couple of weeks.
