Hey wonderful ladies,
Well, I think I did it! Got pregnant, that is. Eeeeeeeeeeee! I tested positive on a home test yesterday, and I’ve already scheduled a bunch of doctor’s appointments (let the madness begin!) but I thought I’d ask here for some advice as well.
My doctor told me to test for ketones first thing in the morning once I found out I was pregnant. So, I did that this morning and, unfortunately, had moderate ketones. An hour later, they were gone, but of course that still worries me. My blood sugar was fine, so what do I do to prevent them? I’m also battling a mild cold, so that may be a factor.
I’m already noticing higher numbers, and am hoping that it’s due to the cold partly. I was hoping to be one of those pregnant women who ran low the first few weeks!! I’ve already upped all my basal rates, which is helping some. Right now, I’m concerned about my one-hour post-meal readings, which are running in the high 100s…not good. It will come down by the two hour. I take my bolus (I use a pump) a good 20 minutes before eating. Do I need to raise my basals more? Not sure what the solution is here. I keep going back and thinking about every high that I’ve had…ugh! My last a1c was fine (6.4) but I still can’t help but be concerned.
Thanks for your imput…I love this group and hearing everyone’s stories!!
