33 Weeks

This week has been really busy for us. We had two ultrasounds and two different doctor visits. Yes, that is four appointments total. My insulin is still high so they added another shot to my day. I am now on three shots of insulin. I am taking 15 units in the morning, 10 units at lunch, and 35 units before dinner. Both doctors (Dr. Amar and Dr. Rister) said that it is normal for my numbers to keep going up.
We also went to Because of You for our second ultrasound. I love watching her on the screen and seeing her movements. She would yawn, smile, scrunch up her face, etc… She is adorable to watch. She also seems to have my nose, cheeks and lips, along with Mark’s legs and fingers. She has really long legs and fingers.
Our second ultrasound was with Dr. Rister’s office, which is never too exciting. They are so plain and it feels like a medical procedure. That is why I like Because of You. At Dr. Rister’s office they took all of her measurements. She was measuring at 32 weeks and 5 days (just two days behind) and weighed about 4.5 pounds, which is average at this stage.
The next day we had our appointment with Dr. Rister. I think he is really concern about me, but is just not saying anything at this point. I do not think he does not want us to worry at this point. We are still looking to have the c-section to week of Dec 19th. Less than a month away and she will be here. We are so excited, especially me because I am tired of pricking my finger and giving myself shots.  The rest of the pregnancy is great and I feel wonderful. The only time I feel bad is when my blood sugar goes up.


  1. Sounds like things are going well! My insulin went up every week as well, and when the doctor had to call my pharmacy he implied that this is the case with all GD patients. Your numbers on the injections are still low! Unless there's more than what I've read so far, I don't think you have any reason to worry. :) Just a few more weeks left!! <3

  2. So far I am taking a total of 65 units per day. The upped my evening units again last night. My fasting numbers are never under 100. My evening numbers are still really high. So I do not know what is going on. Only a few more weeks of this, thank goodness! :)
