Hi there, I've never posted anything on a forum before, so this is all new to me. Eek! I'm just looking to see if anyone else has experienced anything similar to me and what the outcome was. I'll try and keep it as clear as possible, but feel free to ask more questions if I don't make sense. I'm 39 years old, type 1 diabetic, on an insulin pump that uses Novorapid only, 5 weeks pregnant and super resistant to insulin. I have a four year old boy and when I was pregnant with him, my levels were pretty low for the first few months. I've recently been pregnant and miscarried just over two months ago, when I was appropriately eight weeks. That time I struggled for a few days to get my sugar levels down by increasing my basal rates, then my control was fab - if anything, on the low side. (To be honest, I think I just needed a few carb-free days to see what my basal was doing and to adjust it as I'd put weight on and probably needed to up my basal before the pregnancy to tweak my control.) I got my latest HBa1c just after the miscarriage and it was 6.5 (old money) so I was chuffed with that. This time around I am really confused and frustrated. I don't know what's going on. I only found out 8 days ago that I was pregnant. My control prior to that was ok, not fabulous with a few highs, but most days I was waking up with a blood sugar of between 7 and 10. Since finding out, and especially from 5 days ago, I've been 15 quite a few times and often 11, 13, etc. I'm gutted about it as my body is not responding to insulin how it normally does, with my first pregnancy 5 years ago, or the recent one two months ago. Last week I was on 52.8 total basal, and now I'm on 86.80. It's making marginal reductions but nowhere near as tight as I want things. Today I woke up with a bg of 13, took 10 units of insulin (much much much more than I'd usually take to reduce this) and it only went down to 10 a few hours later. I had no food at all, not even milk in a cup of tea to get it down first. In fact, I've had no carbs at all today to see what's happening. I did get to 5.8, 6.3 and 7 ish for most of the day, but tonight after tea, it was 12 again. I took 12 units to get my bg down to 9. My tea was homemade chilli with no rice. I take 1 unit for 5g of carbs for bolus, so I over estimated 20g for a few pulses and a bit in sauce, and took 4 units of insulin. I wouldn't even usually need to bolus for this kind of meal as it's carb free really. So I've taken 3 extra units and I'm at 8 now. This amount of insulin is crazy. Anyone got any insight or tips? I'm sure I'll get there, but I'm confused and getting a bit upset every high I get as I feel guilty and don't want what happened last time to happen again. I hope that makes sense and someone out there is or has experienced the same with a bit of advice or reassurance. Thanks very much.
