With my first pregnancy, I was on insulin injections, but since I'm now taking heparin shots twice a day for clotting problems, I'd really like to minimize the times I have to poke myself. Do you take anything orally, or do I just need to brace myself for more needles? I have an appointment today, and I feel sure my doctor will put me on something starting today because my numbers have been edging up over the last three weeks. Diet and exercies aren't cutting it anymore. Boo.
