I can pretty much guess where my numbers will be, depending on what I eat, if I worked out, if I'm stressed, etc. So I'm getting to be such a slacker with testing lately.

I'm just bored of it.

I wonder if I can request to skip specific tests now, like the after-breakfast of after-lunch. I've almost never gone over the 130 mark on those. Have any of you been able to drop some of the daily testing?

I never asked, but I don't see why not. I am getting bored with mine too. I was really worried about it before, so I wanted to test all the time, but just this last week I've been much less interested. Hopefully I'll be done soon!

Oh wow--you really are close! I'm due March 26, so I still have about 5 weeks to go. Ugh.

im 36 weeks now, and for the past 4 weeks, they cut my tests down to before and after dinner only...its been so much easier to handle. I remember all the testing i was doing before really had me stressed, now i don't really notice it....

only thing is, it was kind of a blessing in disguise having to do so many tests as it really kept my weight in check...i was only at 25 pound weight gain 4 weeks ago...and since my testings got cut back, i picked up about 6 pounds. I would imagine its because i took it for granted and ate a bit too much earlier in the day. Baby is only weighing in at an estimated 6.5lbs right now...so it seems like everything is ok anyways.

Yeah, the whole process definitely kept my weight in check. I only gained 25 pounds total.
