    Has anyone heard of or know of a situation like mine?

    I am 36 weeks pregnant with gestational diabetes. I was taking close to 100 units of NPH and Humulog a day with ok blood sugar control. A few days ago I started have tons of hypoglycemic episodes and now I am not taking any insulin at all. My blood sugars are now 60-70 fasting (were 90-115 on insulin) and under 100 postprandial (were 100-150 on insulin).

    I am very worried that my placenta is starting to fail. I have had numerous NSTs and a biophysical profile this week and so far everything still looks good with the baby. I am just worried that if we continue to wait until things look bad then we will have a bad outcome. Should I push for an early delivery?

    Any similar stories, or advice?
