I’m back with my second pregnancy. I’ll be 7 weeks on Thursday.
This pregnancy is 1000000% different than my first. With my son, I was low from the very beginning and stayed low for most of the first trimester. This time I can’t seem to keep my blood sugar below 200. My last a1c was 6.2 so I generally have been in tight control. Just thinking of food sends me soaring. I’ve been temp basaling to 150% most of the day and correcting on top of that.
I went from using 35-45 units daily to 75-85 units now. This feels like insanity! I’m also changing my sites every other day, walking or getting on the elliptical after every meal (and sometimes before!).
Anyone know why this is happening so soon? I’m terrified to see how much insulin I’ll need in the 2nd and 3rd trimesters at this rate.
