taking insulin when you are pregnant can be a challenge as you progress. One of the things you can do on the abdoman is work with the bab'y's positioning so you are choosing an area that is not so tight(if this is possible). In order to help with arm injections you can push your arm against a door facing and push what adipose tissue you have forward to simplify the injections and help you reach better.
As far as the high blood sugars, every doctor has a range they expect not only for your protection but the baby's as well. You may want to re-evaluate your meal planning and see if there are some changes you can make. Good luck.
