Hi. I’ll start by saying I do not know if I am pregnant yet.
However, I have been trying and was supposed to do trigger shot last Saturday (which was then cancelled) because upon ultrasound it was seen I was already ovulating. Today is Day Post Ovulation No. 6. Too early to test.
Normally my blood sugars do go higher in the second half of my cycle. But the current situation is a bit ridiculous.
Expecting my BS to go higher at this time of the month, I have usually increase my insulin dose about 25%.
However, I have already more than doubled my typical insulin dosage and I am still having unusual highs and very sluggish response to adjustments.
Either all my insulin has suddenly gone bad (for no reason), or possibly there is something else going on. Suspecting something else going on. I have been doing heaps of ‘corrections’ with larger than usual insulin doses. I got 3 readings in the 150s that took a good while to go down and I barely ate (and it was low carb). I am totally going to have to revise my approach to insulin if this is indeed what I am suspecting.
This happened with my second pregnancy that survived… but not to this extent… My blood sugars did go up within 48 hours of the IUI that stuck.
I know I was trying to get pregnant (and honestly not expecting it to happen given my age - 44 and the fact that I am diabetic). I was trying - for my partner’s sake. For me I didn’t really care if it did or didn’t happen. But it is really scary that it is staring me in the face now (potentially). And if this is what my blood sugars are going to do, then I am in for a really tough ride. It is also really scary because I have had so many miscarriages in the past (though I do have my two wonderful girls to show for it).
