The normal for checking BG's is 4 times a day. However, being pregnant changes the rules.
Checking before each meal, then 2 hrs. after; then @ bedtime & then @ 3 am. So let's see....
That adds up to 8 in a 24 hr period. Sounds pretty normal to me. When I was pg, I felt like a pin cushion. But I didn't mind, it was the least of my worries.
I've been type I since age 3. So I've had a while to get use to it. I was 41 when I gave birth!!!!
Best wishes, & hang in there!
