When did you start having reduced insulin needs again? I'm at 36 weeks and suspect I'm just barely starting that phase. I don't think I ever recorded when it started last time!

I did at 35 weeks on the dot... but then I went into labor 3 days later, so that was probably an early sign for me. Also my drop in insulin needs was more like a crash, so perhaps not really comparable.

Mine was just before 36 wks about 35 and 4. I delivered by csection at 38 and 1
Sounds like I'm in just about the right range, then. I woke up this morning at 52, had 12 carbs worth of candy then a 30 carb breakfast shortly after but with no bolus because my BG wasn't coming up quickly enough for me to feel comfortable with more insulin. The highest I got was 117.

The rest of the day has been normal so far, but that's pretty significantly different from my usual numbers!
I had an ultrasound to check the placenta and umbilical cord as I was already in hospital for other reasons and it was all fine. I did a lot of research about it and it is quite common
