Today was interesting! (It usually is around here....)
Woke up and had a decent fasting blood glucose level. I figured since as of late the DiaBeta was making my blood glucose sink like the Titanic I'd make pancakes for breakfast and put minimal syrup. That worked like a charm! One hour after eating, it's supposed to be less than 140, and it was 144. I then got Dante and myself ready and we went to King Soopers with my friend Seth.
Had a blast, Dante recited the alphabet enough to drill it into my unborn child's head and he actually stayed in the car part of the cart without getting out. I think the cheese bribe helped. =D
Got home, put him down for a nap and played online until I felt my body get numb. It was one of the oddest feelings I have ever felt. This whole time I was working on an iced decaf Americano with soy milk, so I wasn't hungry, but the shakes were horrible! So I got up quickly (big mistake) and made myself a sandwich. That was ROUGH. My hands were shaking like a leaf as I attempted to put Miracle Whip on my bread and sliced tomatoes and cheese and put on some honey ham. I don't remember eating it, but I know it disappeared. After I finished the sandwich, I took my blood sugar: 68. YIKES! So I slammed a couple oreos and a couple Hershey hugs and took a nap. Woke up to take my sugar again, and it was 130. Creepy, non?
It took him a few hours, but Hubby made an AMAZING stew with shredded pork and potatoes...Wow. I think I may have overcompensated with the oreos because an hour and a half after I finished my huge bowl, I got a reading of 132. Not bad, but it should have been better. All that matters in my book is the fact that I didn't wind up in a coma. *shakes head*
On the bright side, tomorrow (technically later today) I get a growth ultrasound and we'll see how low she is and if she's head down. I'm fairly certain she is, so at the very least I'll get a few more pictures to add to my collection.
Then I get to ask my doc about this med, since it's doing weird things to me. And I'm still having problems getting my fingers to stop bleeding after I check them. THAT makes me worry!
And now I am going to play a few games, unwind my brain, and hope for the best!
