    So last week I couldn't control my sugars .. I was mostly high and I just couldn't get them down!

    Well this week I'm constantly hypoing .. I was 2.7 then 45 mins later I was 3.2 after eating a ton of surgery food!
    I'm loosing count of how many I have on a daily basis at the moment.

    I'm so full I can't stomach anymore food!!
    I'm so excited about this pregnancy but it's draining being diabetic and pregnant

    Ahh it's a nightmare isn't it I rember just sticking at around 2.6 for hours once no matter what I was having!! Have you tried having juice so you don't have to eat each time? Congratulations by the way I've been off the forum for a while and your post is the first thing I've saw :)

    It's 16 years ago for me, but I remember just having very low amounts of Insulin, about 1 unit at times because of the 'low time trimester'. Lots of hypo's after wards when I was breast feeding, so be careful and test, test, test.
    I wish you all the best for a happy and a safe delivery, so exciting and take care x

    Congrats on the pregnancy but sorry to hear you're struggling with hypos! How far along are you if you don't mind me asking?
