    10.3 last night, a correction dose and 3.8 this morning - if only it was as simple as it sounds!

    Oof yeah... I took a correction an hour or so before bed. Then decided to check before getting into bed, I had dropped from 10.2 to 4.7 in an hour

    Ended up staying up two hours extra to eat a little snack to make sure I didn't continue to drop.

    So I fell asleep at 6.2 and woke up at 9.4.

    Before bed I was 6.9 had a 2.9 hypo at 3am and woke up to 8.6 this morning.
    Not too shabby considering I've got a stinker of a cold and morning sickness today and yesterday!

    Hope everyone else's levels are behaving!

    Edit - by morning sickness, I mean all day sickness!! This baby is killing me!!!

    Haha it's been like this since the beginning, I've got less than 3 weeks to go now so that'll be very nice!

    It'll all be worth it once baby is here :)

    Can't pretend that I'm not equally looking forward to feeling better as much as I am my baby's arrival!

    At least they're consistent though and you haven't had a massive jump through the night, that's something positive!
    I think you're right about having s split dose, I did that when I was on lantus and it did make a difference :)

    Finally a post about 'your' Diabetes! :wideyed: LOL (Honestly I think you are both doing sensationally!)

    At least you seem steady overnight - well last night at least. You'll get there.

    It looks as if you Lantus has kept you level overnight, so it would be better to tweak your evening meal bolus so that you were lower before bed.

    I hate when it tricks you like that! At least if it is super high you can do something about it!
    Same goes for false hypos!

    Glad you had a good reading this morning :)

    I feel my highs quite a lot, I wouldn't usually correct for 8 but I have been running low this week & didn't go over 7 till just before bedtime (sadly I think it's because I'm ill & whatever virus I have is doing something magical to my blood sugar!) so when I woke up at 8 I was feeling really hyper - I.e. Desperate for a wee & like something had died in my mouth!

    bed 5.2 so ate about 1cp of carbs. morning at 7.5. so I reckon my toujeo insulin at 18 units is about right for night time.
    hoping to check for basal by eating no carbs after breakfast then testing for basal at 5.30pm. This should tell me if daytime is ok. I have to have one toujeo each morning

    Oof that's not fun! Anything above 10 makes me feel absolutely rancid these days. Hope you're managing to pull it back down now!
