35 week scan + clinic today. I’ve had some high blood glucose readings over the last week that can’t be explained by diet. My plan for the weekend? 48hr full BG profile + food diary. That means testing my bloods a minimum of 7x per day + more if my readings are high. My fingers are already sore! On Monday they will make a decision as to whether I need to commence insulin. Next scan + clinic in 2 weeks, when plans for induction may be put in place! eek! 


Photo is a throwback to our 12 week scan; I was diagnosed with Gestational Diabetes at 13 weeks and never did I imagine that I would get through the last 23 weeks without insulin… here’s hoping I can make it the final few! 

What has happened to the PhD? I am really struggling to keep up with PhD life right now. GD is constantly on my mind, it can literally take over my day, and finding the space and time to just write (or do some analysis) seems totally inexistent right now. I can’t switch off. To top it off… we have had a poorly toddler (and now poorly me) + the arrival of heartburn, and what happened to being able to sleep at night?!
