"In the beginning of the third trimester I also needed to increase things about every three days. Just follow your numbers and keep increasing where they are high. It means your little one is growing as he should!"

Third Trimester and High blood sugars

I am in my third trimester and up until now I have found that actually my blood sugar levels have been somewhat easy to control except for the lows early on. Now its such a different story. It seems like every other day I am adjusting my basal rate, it is good for one maybe two days and then crazy again. I am working with my endo who doesn't seem overly concerned but I am getting really stressed out about this. I am even afraid to go get my A1c done, I don't want to know the number. I wish this…See More

"I recently found out that I was pregnant. Last week my blood sugars were climbing and no matter how much insulin I took it just stayed high. I have adjusted my basal rate and finally they are coming down. I too am very worried about what this will…"

Welcome home Julia...fellow Canadian!
Take a peek at some the groups when you get a chance. Just go to the top of your page, and click on "Groups". Once in, you can either peruse the wide array of available groups....or simply type a specific interest in the space provided. Take in some of the blogs/discussions and take a look at the Canada Embassy page as well, by going to the headings in the aqua coloured box in the upper left hand of the home page. Click on "DHF Grassroots". Once you're in scroll down, click on "Canada embassy", and voilà! The house in the photo is where Dr. Frederick Banting lived and had his medical practice in London, Ontario, Canada...before going to the University of Toronto to work on diabetes research, and ultimately the discovery of Insulin.
