I know I'm running the risk of sounding like a broken record, but what is with these night time numbers? When we raised Elise's N to 3 units, it didn't touch her. So after about 5 days, we bumped it up to 3.5.
The first night was okay, and she woke up with a BG of 191. But last night (and quite coincidentally, Fred is out of town), was a different story.
I decided to just stay up until midnight to check her, and was dismayed to find her at 100. This was before her N was even peaking (maybe it had started to peak, I don't know). So 8g of banana and 30 minutes later she was at 140. Good night.
Until the 3:00 check. And she's back at 100. Sigh. I gave her 5g more and went back to bed. I will rather guiltily admit that I fell back asleep before I could re-check to make sure she was heading back up. Yeah, I know... bad Mom. What can I say? Night time checks are Fred's domain.
She woke up earlier than usual with a BG of 83. So I guess I'm going to scale back the N again. I hate this going back and forth on the amounts, I think this month alone we've given her 2 units, 2.5, 3 and 3.5. We can't seem to find a magic number.
And the stress is getting to me. Last night alone I downed about 5 bags of mini M&Ms (ohmygosh I love those!), and three bags of Swedish Fish. Before you start oinking at me, they were the trick or treating sized bags. At this rate there won't be anything left by (this weekend) Oct. 31.
I knew there was a reason that I don't buy candy until right before hallowe'en.
