    Sometimes I have the dairy herd, admiring their reflections in my bedroom window! That's country life for you :p

    You could maybe start a thread, Spearmint, logging your daughter's progress. I know I for one would follow it and maybe offer insights. We all need support. It would be great if we could keep this thread 'on target' - but neither do I want to squelch, in any way, this wonderful camaraderie it's creating! :D

    Back to the topic at hand..

    This morning I was a 5.9 - still higher than I like - but I think things won't reset until the antibiotic totally out of my system. Battled a severe bronchitis for 3 weeks.. I'm better. But started the antibiotic in week 2 and it's still in my system. I'm sure that's affecting my numbers.

    5.5 for me, very happy with that.

    Not so happy with the 3.4 mid morning. Same breakfast and novorapid as usual, a little light shopping and jigsaws with my 4yo. None of it seemed particularly out of the ordinary. I did turn out to be exceptionally bad at bob the builder jigsaws at that level, not sure that's au useful hypo symptom :lol:

    Couple of jelly babies and a cup of tea later I was feeling much better.

    It was 4.0 and I am exceedingly happy with that.
    Spent 7 hours last night at a massive factory fire with our Fire Brigade's pumper in 100 km+ winds, freezing cold and frequently soaked from burst hoses. The fire service fed us with McDonalds and for the first time in 2 years I had a burger and ate the bread but recorded a 5.6 three hours later. I won't be doing that again though!
    I did have a couple of rum and coke zeros when I got home to wind down before I showered and went to bed at 2.30am. My husband neglected to turn my electric blanket on until I got home so I had a reason to stay up and do a few things I had planned to do before the fire call came!

    I had 6.2 this morning. A little bit of DP maybe as I was probably low last night. I only had 19g carbs during the day yesterday but I was so tired I forgot to test before going to bed.

    6.3 and whilst not happy I am do know that last night's chocolate might have a little to do with it! Not that I over-indulged but that doesn't help.




    It was nice though!

    Okay this is getting a bit strange. I'm 6.4 again, i think that's the 3rd time since i've posted on this thread that i've been 6.4 in the morning. I'm happy with it though :)

    Mine was 8.5, higher than i'd like but i'm having a 24hr blood pressure test done. I think having my arm squeezed to death every 15mins in the day and 30 through the night hasn't helped my levels!

    Well, she was 6.8 this morning :shock: :shock: :D :D

    Only thing done differently yesterday was using the bigger needles at all injections - amazing difference :shock: :shock:

    No big spikes overnight either but a slight dip so once i have todays readings i will start a thread tonight to get peoples opinions on what to change and by how much.

    For those who have been following: she was 9.4 at 7:30pm, 8.5 at 9pm, 8.9 at 11pm, 4.5 at 3am
    So much better than the previous 2 nights :D

    Excellent! :)

    Maybe your recent changes took a while to take effect.

    Stick with the bigger needles, see if it thats whats making a difference.

    You must be dead chuffed, it's great to hear! :D

    well good news all-round by the looks of it this morning everyone has improving blood sugars!

    I didn't take a reading first thing this morning as my five month old daughter was up early and demanding food... but I was 4.6 mmol/l @ 7:30am 2 hours post my breakfast

    It does seem that a few seem to be posting lower and lower numbers, which is good to see.

    Good going Anna! maybe your diabetes is a little scared at the propect of a new DSN so decided to behave a little today? Whatever it is i hope it continues :)

    Spearmint - maybe it is that with bigger needles she's getting the insulin better! :)
