Hi all, I'm 35 weeks and have Gestational diabetes. I'm on Insulin, first it was 14 units in the morning, then 16 at night, it wasnt working so they upped my dose to 18 units in the morning and 22 at night, still wasnt working, now I'm on 28 units in the morning, 12 at lunch and 30 at dinner, the levels are better than before, but still not quite in the right range! It's driving me nuts! I'm doing everything right, eating the right diet and doing moderate exercise but I still can't seem to control the blood sugar levels! sad
I'm just wondering if anyone else has had this problem with GD or insulin not working, and I'm also being told bubs might have a low bsl when he's born due to mine being so high but dropping when he comes out of me, if that makes sense, it's a bit worrying.
I'm just sick of sticking myself with insulin injections 3 times a day when it seems to be pointless, has anyone got any advice? Or they're own experiences with this, would be nice to know I'm not the only one who has been cursed with Gestational diabetes.
