Starting on Insulin during pregnancy
I just took my first ever injection of insulin. I’m not a person who’s cool with needles. In fact, I can’t even watch them draw my blood at the doctor’s office, but I did it.
It took me about 20 minutes with a hovering needle before I could do it. What finally did it for me was looking over at my baby girl sleeping peacefully. She makes me strong.
I barely felt the poke, it only lasted 10 seconds and I feel ok. No reactions yet.
The shot (Humalog) is supposed to take affect fully at 30-90 minutes.
Let’s see how this goes.
Then another dose of insulin (NPH) before bed.
