I’m at 22 weeks and the last three have been a roller coaster. I started the first few weeks with higher insulin, then we plateaued around week 13-16. I was really happy; finally, I new what I could eat, and the numbers were perfect. Week 20 came along, and it’s been crazy since.
I have more than doubled my insulin needs, and depending on the day, the food, the stage of the moon and some butterfly in Africa, the prescribed dose may just about be enough, or may be too much, or too little. Most consistent option has been to significantly cut out carbs, but who can live that way?!
I met with my doctor yesterday, and she expects that we’ll continue to increase the insulin needs until delivery.
The placenta is really messing around w. our hormones.
I try to check often, correct and move on.
