I could count on one hand the amount of times my fasting level was under the limit. I also had many readings over 7 with meals. I was put on insulin at 30wks after trying diet from 28-29wks. My insulin was put up every second day until 36wks then once a week (by 10) from there. I was on 55units of Lantus overnight (started on 6units), 22units of novo at breakfast and 12 at lunch (started on 4). My bub was born at 38+6 and was perfectly healthy, no effects from high levels.
