So I'm 26 weeks pregnant with baby #2 and last night I had a sudden, large, and unexplained drop in my insulin resistance that has me worried. I'm emailing to see if anyone had a similar experience and what happened.
My insulin resistance has been rising steadily for the last 10 weeks, and in the last six weeks I've needed a slight increase in insulin every 3-4 days. Then suddenly I'm up all night last night battling lows and today it's looking like I need about 20 - 25% less insulin than I did yesterday. It's like my insulin resistance has dialed back about three weeks.
My concern is that this happened when I was at 34 weeks with my last pregnancy, and I gave birth a few days later at 35 weeks. My endo said that the sudden drop was a sign the placenta was crapping out, and so I delivered shortly after. 26 weeks is way early for that to be happening though!
I talked to my doctors today -- my endocrinologist was concerned, my OB was dismissive.
Anyway, has anyone else had this happen to them in late second / early third trimester for no good reason? What happened?
