Hi all. I am currently 34wks 5days and have been noticing a few unexplained lows and have had to back off a bit with both my mealtime bolus and basal insulin levels. This is pretty opposite to what I have been doing, which is maintaining great control, but taking lots and lots of insulin (175-200 U/day over the past 2-3 weeks, 50-60U/day pre-pregnancy). My perinatologist told me this increase in lows was expected around week 36 or so.
I was wondering when you all experienced this, if at all.
I am not sure what it means (I will be asking at my next appointment). So far, everything throughout my pregnancy has been going well. Through some of my research, I've found that it might mean the placenta isn't working as well (the hormones it releases are what leads to insulin resistance in the first place). That freaks me out a bit since I'd rather have her in there cooking for another 2-3 weeks at least.
