I'm finding out quickly that the hardest thing about being diabetic and pregnant (for me, at least) isn't the testing, adjusting, bolusing or carb counting. It's not being so easily able to snack to stave off "morning" sickness. Morning? HA! If only.
Being that I wasn't diagnosed until my third trimester with my son ("gestational" at the time) I was free the first trimester to basically live off of Saltines to keep me from feeling SO horrible. Now I have to think about every little thing that goes into my mouth. I can't feel sick and just dig into the package of crackers and munch a few until I feel better. I've gotta count them out, check the label (if it's a kind I'm not familiar with), test my sugar, figure out insulin/punch the carbs into my meter and then test two hours later. If I eat say three of five and feel better but feel like I can't eat anymore...I have to force them down or risk going low later. And I have to do this about every half hour because any longer and I start feeling nauseous again.
I just got a call back from my OB's office and they recommended a couple of things that could help. One of them is taking a B6 vitamin twice a day with half a Unisom in the morning and at night. I'm not sure about this sleeping pill in the morning thing. I'm tired enough as it is!
