"I was doing shots when I was pregnant with my daughter. I got to the point where I was not eveing doing a carb ratio anymore. At the very end of my pregnancy I was taking 56 units of NPH split between morning and bed time. And ready for this 26…"

"That is about the time in my pregnancy when my insulin needs went way up. In fact this is around the time a non diabetic would have their glucose tolerence test. Some highs will not hurt your baby, it seems we all have this. It gets harder to…"

"I'm 33 weeks now & around your time my diabetes nurse encouraged me to change things in between appointments and contact her if needed. She told me that every 2-3 days I might be seeing changes and she was so right. I say, you know your…"

"I am 30 weeks now, but I remember at 28 weeks it got a little hairy for me. My CDE told me to not be surprised if my I:C goes 1:1. Right now is the highest it's ever been 4.5:1 for breakfast. I have learned to just plug in the wizard and…"

"I know the feeling Lilli. The pregnancy really burned me out from a diabetes perspective and I took a year (well a year and a half now) to be pretty relaxed about my control. I felt like I talked to my endo more than my husband some weeks! But I was…"

Kristin replied to eireowen09's discussion 'Insulin Resistance Getting Crazy?' in the group Oh! BABY!!!
"I had the same feeling about my endo Lilli. She was worried about the lows (which is fair), but I was more concerned about the highs. She refers to the Somogyi effect saying that lows cause highs later (I have not personally noticed this effect, but…"

"Mine came about at 22-23 wks and I finally have them wrangled into control at 24-26 wks. My basals are at least double my "un-pregnant" rate and I:C rates are ridiculous (at least for me) at around 1/5-1/7. Just keep working at changing…"

Kristin replied to eireowen09's discussion 'Insulin Resistance Getting Crazy?' in the group Oh! BABY!!!
"Sounds about right :-) I adjusted my rates at least every week throughout the pregnancy, but made significant changes once or twice a week in this stage. Hang in there! The best is yet to come (after the birth)!!"

"I'm 28 weeks and my bgs aren't making any sense. It seems like I'm adjusting my bgs every 2-3 days. It's frustrating but my ob has me come in every two weeks and does an ultra sound and so far so good. Hang in there, I know…"

Ana replied to eireowen09's discussion 'Insulin Resistance Getting Crazy?' in the group Oh! BABY!!!
"It sounds normal. Just keep checking your BS every hour or so to catch the highs and take insulin when needed. Just make sure you have glucose tabs or whatever you use in case you overdose with insulin. My insulin needs pretty much tripled in the…"

Kristin replied to eireowen09's discussion 'Insulin Resistance Getting Crazy?' in the group Oh! BABY!!!
"Sounds just about right! Don't be afraid to increase your insulin doses every 2-3 days. That's what I needed around this time. In the process, I had a lot of highs too. Pregnancy was so full of worries, but I can tell you that my healthy…"

Insulin Resistance Getting Crazy?

I just turned 27 weeks & it seems like for the past month no matter what I do, or how I increase my basals I have a TON of highs. It's really starting to bring me down & make me feel like a terrible terrible mother. Anyone else have issues with awful IR?See More
