MORE GD FUN. plus physical drainage

So, My sugar numbers continue to be crazy high....

Talked to the specialist today and gee guess what....

UPPING my night time meds.

I continue to be shaky. I get tired so easily. I can't stand for long periods of time. My lower and upper abdomen hurts when I walk. This weekend when walking in Walmart I had to stop and clutch my stomach several times. Stairs wind me. I feel like I should be on bed rest. At least partial.

I am lucky that I am not working. But I feel so lazy when I do rest. I just want a dr. to tell me...hey you are going to be 27 wks tomorrow. the wk you went into preterm with Bug, you feel this way physically, maybe you should be on bed rest. If not complete then partial....

BAM. instant guilt free.


  1. Okay. You know your body better than anyone. If you feel like bed rest is a good idea, then do so. At least rest as much as you are up--say, one hour up, one hour down? You won't regret being over cautious, but you would regret it if you ignored your instinct and something happened. Hugs.

  2. I'm sorry I've been MIA. Take the bed rest!! Let DH and MIL do everything for you. Seriously. Just sleep and don't make any apologies for it. You are having a hard time and you need to not feel gulity and just lay around.

    I wish we lived closer.

  3. You know your body and what it needs better than anyone else. Do not have guilt for what your body is telling you that you need. Listen to your body and rest.... guilt free ... You deserve the rest.

  4. so I got tons of stuff done today in the morning. I laid down after lunch. set the alarm for two hours after lunch...alarm went off, half asleep I tested sugar, and then feel back to sleep. All in all today I slept from 12:30 to 5:30. craziness. I could easily go back to bed.

  5. rest!!! take all the time you can to take care of yourself!! do it...

  6. You know what, *I* am hereby ordering you to rest as much as possible.

  7. Funny. Hubby said the same thing. He said. You wont have guilt if the doc. tells you to sleep and stay on the couch. but you arent guilt free when I tell you too rest all you need to. Stay in bed....
    OK then. I am doing nothing.
