    Hi! I’m currently at 7 weeks with baby number 1 and was wondering if anyone on here experienced unexplained highs in the night? I’m talking around 11pm (sometimes as early as 10) lasting a few hours, even after adjusting my basal and desperately attempting to correct with a few units of Fiask. It’s never insanely high (peaking around 10mmol/l) but I’ve been trying so hard to keep within my 4.0-7.9 window and I’ve been losing sleep over it!

    I knew to expect the hypos, but what the heck is this?!

    Have you spoken to the GP or your DSN? Perhaps it's the fact that you're stressed about it that's partially cause the rise? It's so difficult to tell and I've only just found out I'm pregnant with my first so I don't have any personal experience but just wanted to comment so you know you're not on your own with this!

    Let us know how you get on xx
