26 weeks brings the need for more and more insulin and having to change my inset almost EVERY day! One of the reasons I got on the pump was so that I didn't have to poke myself with a needle every day, but this is what this stage of pregnancy brings. With my first pregnancy I had to do it starting at about 17 weeks, and this one it's just starting now. I did realize that sometimes I wasn't be patient enough and giving the insulin time to work, which is probably why I changed it more often before....but now at 26 weeks it's becoming necessary for me.
We just got back from a babymoon to Mexico! It was awesome! Not too hard to control my sugars abroad. But it was very hot and humid, therefore I experienced some painful water retention. I didn't realize what it was until I got back. My calves were HUGE and I felt like I pulled a lot of muscles in them. My face was also slightly swollen as well. I've been drinking a bunch of water which has helped with the water retention as well.
My back has been starting to really hurt. Traveling on an airplane and with airport delays it was no fun. I'm going to a Chiropractor and Physical Therapist too. I am going to do some acupuncture as well. I had issues during my last delivery with my back and want to prevent them as much as possible if I can.
Eyes- since last week I have noticed some blurriness in my left eye. As I drove today and it covered briefly my eye I freaked out and went to the eye doctor. I was worried because I'm type 1 and pregnant. My doctor told me my eyes could get worse in pregnancy. He told me today though what he see's is the residual blood left over from when my eyes bled before when I was doing fertility treatments. It was such a great relief to know that it wasn't anything new! After all the back issues I've been dealing with , I didn't want to have to deal with that too. They said it can take anywhere from 2 months to a REALLY long time for it to go away....let's just hope it goes away on it's own!
Next growth scan is in 2 weeks!! I'm looking forward to that....and then maybe after that I'll start ordering some baby furniture! :)
