I cannot believe we are already to week 22. We are past the halfway point! When did that happen? I am proud to announce my A1C is down to 5.8 and I am determined to get it lower. In the meanwhile I am trying my hardest to keep my blood sugar below 120 within the two hour mark. When you are pregnant and just wanting to eat everything around you this is extremely difficult. I do not always succeed, but I take comfort in my husband who reminds me that I am doing good with my levels and that high blood sugar will happen sometimes. I had recently a higher level and I did nothing different. I had the same breakfast all week long, but on this day I cannot explain it. I went almost to 300. I was not happy. I kept giving myself more insulin and I was not going down. It took over 3 hours for my levels to drop below 200. The only thing I can think of is hormones from my pregnancy affecting me randomly or it is the cold I am currently experiencing. I have increased my basal rate on my pump and that does appear to be helping. I might need to increase it more, but I am watching closely! I am so happy to be on a pump and CGM. I’m not how women handle pregnancy without a pump and CGM.
I have begun to feel what many women call flutters. It is such an amazing feeling. Joe cannot wait until the baby starts kicking so he can feel the baby too.
My latest appointments showed our baby to progressing nicely. Its the size it is supposed to be and its heart rate it spot on! It’s an active little one too. Doc said she could hear it flipping and rolling around in there. I just need to keep my levels good.
Joe and I are so excited for this little one. We cannot wait to hold him in our owns.
