So ive been testing my fasting numbers for the last 2 weeks. They range between 85-95 with my highest fasting reading at 96 but i got up to pee 4 hours before i woke and ate a yogart so i dont think its fasting.. My Midwife was happy with my numbers, but the next 2 weeks will be the tell tell since im just about 27 weeks now. She said i could either take the GTT of continue testing my fasting. I decided to continue testing my fasting because IMO its way more accurate. Im soo much more healthy this pregnancy then last. My third trimester last time was horrible, my husband lost his mother and brother right when i started testing my number, so ill be interested to see if lower stress helps.
Im trying to stay positive. Im really really really dont want to give birth in a hospital again. My midwife says that even if i have to go on night time insulin, if my numbers are ok then the homebirth is still on. If my numbers are wacky...then i cant have one..
Like i said up till now my numbers are great. I might start cinnamon before bed just to keep it in check. Prayers for my pancreas please!!!!
Thank you Mom2*Lauryn*Jacob* for my gorgeous siggie!
Good luck! I am trying for a birthing center birth with my midwife. I will find out in 2 weeks if I'm medically cleared for the birthing center. I'm really nervous. Sounds like your midwife is committed to making it work for you. Go pancreas!
