I'm about 10 weeks pregnant with my first baby, and am having the common first trimester drop in bloodsugars.
I tend to be pretty aggressive about treating highs in general, and to err on the side of being too low rather than too high. I feel my lows, and have a CGM, so I feel relatively safe taking this approach. In addition, it takes only a couple of minutes and a couple of glucose tabs to correct a low, whereas it can take an hour or more for my BG to come down if I'm over 200. My question for others is: during your pregnancy, did you worry more about being high or being low? I realize that I have been warned so much about highs being bad for the baby that I don't actually know what risks lows pose. I'm having lows pretty frequently, and I'd rather not, but it seems to some extent like the price I'm paying to keep my BG under 150 almost all the time. I aim for balance, of course, and that sweet spot where I'm neither high or low, but I think any diabetic knows that balance isn't always possible.
So how did you ladies approach trying to achieve a balance between avoiding hypoglycemia and avoiding hyperglycemia while you were (or are!) pregnant?
