    That's great that they've reduced your dose and I'm sure you'll feel much better once you've had a chat with them about it all. As for me, after brekkie was 6.8. Rang in with my levels and the nurse accepted that because all other readings had been nice and low that maybe yesterday was due to the massage. She said to keep an eye on levels and if they stay high to ring back Monday. Sadly lunch was 7.9 which makes me think I'm heading to insulin. I think if dinner, fasting and brekkie are high again then I may call back tomorrow - not sure I want to wait over the weekend and risk high levels for another few days.

    I hope they drop for you! I would much prefer being able to control with dietary changes than taking the insulin.

    My dr said maybe I should consider having a few days in hospital next week, just to get me "right". I have felt so ill off and on for quite a while now. It is my choice so I'll have to think about it. She can't explain to me why about a week ago my levels dropped, which is why I'm now having some "hypos". The only thing I changed last week was to start taking acidophilus tablets again because my digestion hadn't been great. Everything else has been the same. Although today being on reduced dosages I was a lot more stable - not such big drops, which is good.

    It would suck to have to go in but if the end result is your bloods under control and you feeling better then it will definitely be worthwhile. Dinner result was high but this mornings have been back within range so will just continue to track over the weekend and see how I go.

    How did you go with your results over the weekend? Have you checked in with the nurse again?

    I sent my results to the dr this morning. A couple on the weekend were too high but most were good. Most importantly no hypos. Just waiting to hear back from the dr whether she wants me to go to hospital or not.

    Had a few more high ones and fasting and brekkie were high today so I rang in my results - starting 6 units of Protophane this evening 😢. They've given me a Novotapid pen too even though I don't need to take it yet because it's only a matter of time. Got my antenatal/GD clinic appt on Wed so will be speaking to them again then. How about you?

    Oh, sorry to hear that.

    I only just heard back from my dr this afternoon. I'm being admitted at 5pm this Sunday and will probably be there until Wednesday next week. It will be good to get this all sorted out. She's said that she will be able to sort out my insulin dosages much more quickly in hospital. While I'm there I will also be seeing a physio and occupational therapist to work out an appropriate exercise program and a perinatal psychiatrist to talk about anxiety, which I have been suffering from during this pregnancy.

    Hi I'm new to this thread. I am 34+5 with my second and found out I had gd at 28 weeks, I didn't have it with my son, at 30 weeks I was on insulin and it has been getting harder and harder to control, I am now getting very high levels and don't go more than 2 days without having to turn up my night injections to bring down my fasting levels. I am starting to get very worried that something is going to happen to the baby. Has anyone else had high levels and been ok? I am due to be induced at about 38 weeks date to be decided but wondering if my levels don't settle down will they do it earlier?

    Thanks ladies

    Wow, you're getting so close. You must be excited!

    My OB has said this is exactly what happens with GD, that the further along you go, and particularly in the third trimester, your hormones increase and cause your blood sugar levels to continually increase, and then the insulin dose has to be increased as well. I've also been told that I will be induced/elective caesar (I haven't decided yet) at 37/38 weeks.

    My understanding from conversations with my OB is that they want to keep the baby in there for as long as possible. They would only go earlier than that if the baby was in distress. When do you next check in with your doctor?

    I just worry all the spikes will cause issues.. I have been told because my insulin is so high I can't go past 39 at the latest but would prefer 38, .. I see my doc tomorrow for our weekly check up and am going to call my diabetes lady today to figure out what next.. I think I'm more worried about her having problems when she is born etc or something going wrong, I had a very traumatic labour and birth with my first so maybe it's all just getting to me lol

    Oh, gosh, I hope this time around your labour and birth goes smoothly! I'm sure it is playing on your mind, making you feel worse. I know that it's hard to stop the worrying but that will also contribute to higher levels. I've been trying all sorts of things to keep calm. It can be easier said than done.

    I freak out every time I get a high reading. I'm finding it tricky to manage the levels and I'm only 16 weeks, so still a long way still to go.

    The diabetes lady should be able to give you a few pointers to help with your levels. You should definitely talk to your doctor about your concerns. Sometimes just expressing those opinions and talking about it a bit is enough to put you at ease.
