No.

Will 15 units of Humalog cover this meal?


How about 20?



What if I do 23 units with an increased basal rate for three hours?


23 units, an increased basal rate for three hours, and I go walk for 15 minutes?



THIS IS THE WORST. Is it possible to eat breakfast without topping 200 mg/dL at the two-hour mark?


Fine. What if it's just milk, decaf coffee and-


Okay, then I'll inject-



Needless to say, I'm looking forward to my (again) visit with my endo this afternoon. The size of my recent boluses, and the increasingly stubborn insulin resistance that is the hallmark of the third trimester, is making me dizzy.

  1. I felt like no matter what, my insulin needs were ever-increasing to the point where you just chase bgs. So annoying. Good news is, around week 36 my needs seemed to level out, and that's supposedly common/not just me. So now (38wks) things are less frustrating.

    Keep going, you are doing great and almost there!

  4. This made me LOL. The best part of the third trimester is when it ends and you can snuggle the damn kid. :)

  5. Have you tried a Super Bolus? (I'm almost done with a blog post on it. It should get posted either later today or tomorrow morning). I'm not advising it, because that would be...you know...medical advice, but it helps for me.

    Then again, I'm not carrying a baby in my belly. Hope you can figure it out!

  8. I totally relate... I used to give myself little "good luck boluses" just because.

    It's so tough towards the end of the pregnancy but I found I just needed to be forgiving to myself and just do what I could:)

  13. I closed my landscaping business and moved south to Jacksonvile to help launch Humic Growth Solutions. The company was formed with the mission of producing the best quality humic products at prices the farmers of the world could afford.

    Humic makes things grow better, bigger roots, sweeter fruit and larger yields. I quickly learned throughout the manufacturing process and many field trials that this product was a game changer. Want to learn more about our organic lawn care products services.
