Up and at 'em!

So I had my second NST yesterday and it took a little longer than normal.. I guess they like to see what they call "Excels" which is a natural variation upward in baby's heart rate.. and he was DEcelling which they didn't like.. The nurse kept poking and prodding, telling little man to "get mad" at her.. (it was kinda funny Lol ) and then changed it to "come play with me!" But after a while, he started behaving. :clappy:

My fasting numbers have been way too high for their liking - imagine that.. my worst numbers are when I don't eat! :shock: ha! So I've been started on 5mg of Glyburide (I think that's the spelling?) to take 30 minutes before my PM snack. She said it could take a few days to see results but it would help..

BUT! With this new medicine comes an even higher risk of a big baby so I have a growth scan on my 3/29 NST. :woohoo: for seeing baby again! Biggrin

Side note - Did you see the first April baby is coming TOMORROW????????? Our time is nearing, mamas!! Wink

What? Really? I'll be going to April soon lol.

Yey for getting to see baby! Woot woot. I don't know if my OB will do another one.. probably not but I hope! I'm terrified about my appt tomorrow.. well, not my appt.. about the scale LOL I'll be getting a big tsk tsk I am sure. I just feel so darn hungry some days and I crave carbs, carbs, carbs!

I hope your appt growth scan is awesome, I know it will be.. you will get to see that precious little man Smile

I WISH my doctor would try oral meds with me but they just go straight to insulin Sad I heard glyburide was strong and causes lows but I feel like my fastings need something that strong. I bet it is cheaper than insulin too :/ At 15 units nightly I paid $75 for a month. Now I am up to 28units and I am sure I will be upped again.

But yay for seeing baby. I will probably have an U/S every week but mostly for cervical checks so I don't get to see baby Sad looking at my cervix isn't nearly as much fun lol.

And now I am off to go stalk April...

Happy week 32, Nidia!!

Happy week 30, Christine!!

Ok so I took my sugar this morning, fully expecting to see between 105 and 110. It was 76!!!!!!!! :jawdrop:

Along with that, though, has come crazy fast heart racing and absured irritability. Sad I've already snapped at DD and my boss this morning. Lovely. I think DH knew something was different b/c he came to kiss me goodbye and that was it.. he dashed out of the kitchen!

If they usually have 2.5 incriments up to 10mg, I wonder why they started me on such a high dose (ie. half)?

CHRISTINE - God love her.. when the nurse was telling me about my numbers and that we needed a plan, I straight up asked her if we were going to shots. She said no.. she wanted to try this first. I think it works.. almost too good! :confused:

76 is AWESOME!

They want my fasting numbers to be below 90. The lowest I've ever had was 99. Most readings are between 105-115 so high. They said the fasting value is a TRUE snap shot of what you're body is doing.

I took the pill last night 30 minutes before my bedtime snack and this morning was 76!! She said it would take a couple days to start working but I'm disagreeing! Lol

Why do you have to have NST so early? Is it because of the diabetes?

Yuppers.. Because of the GD. They added a growth scan because of the meds, now, too..

Wow, those are results! Hope it levels out for you and you don't get too many side effects from the med. I know I don't need any help with being overly irritable :eek:
How were the numbers today?
