I woke up this morning to a surprising BG of 271. What the what? I went to bed at 129. How the heck does this work??? I do remember waking up to the high alarm around midnight and I gave myself a small bolus of 1.5 units to bring myself down. I usually am a fan of the temp basal but I was obviously very sleepy!
I have my high snooze set at 60 minutes (Low is at 15) so I went back to dreamland confident that my Dexcom would wake me up if my BG didn’t come down. I really like to have good numbers overnight because this accounts for a third of the day and therefore good overnight numbers will lead to a better a1c. And that leads to baby time. Babies. Mush. (My uterus has been screaming for a tenant lately, but that’s another blog for another day)
You can see where this is going. My Dexcom didn’t wake me up and this morning I was surprised to see a 271 on my receiver. I checked my settings and realize that my High snooze had been turned off. I semi-sorta-kinda remember turning it off over the weekend because I didn’t want to be an annoying beeping cyborg while visiting my friend.
One should always remember to check her settings when one returns from a trip!
And, one needs to stop eating spaghetti. :o(
