So. Went to the endocrinologist today and she said that because I had a max of 10 days left in the pregnancy she wasnt going to put me on a fast acting insulin and that "at this point nothing will matter anyway." so my blood sugars have been a little high, ranging from 126-160 after meals.apparently that doesnt bother her. So then why am I taking my glucose 4 times a day and why am i taking the levamir insulin at night? If bringing down the levels wont matter, I am going to just stop pricking my fingers and bruising my thighs. I have "track marks" all along my thighs from the injections and they hurt and it seems like a big waste. baby only weighs 5 lb 12 oz and isnt big at all. i know macrosomatic babies are a concern, but not in my case. I have lost another lb since monday bringing my total w/g to a whopping 6 lbs. I just, at this point, am giving up.
