When I first posted on here I was kind of freaking out because my A1C was 8.2 and I found out I was pregnant. Just want everyone to know my most recent A1c is 6.0! I am so happy and everything is going well, and my sugars are beautiful. My high risk doctor has tried to mess with my basal rates because they weren’t up to HER par. She is the doctor and I should listen, but after her LOWERING my basal and insulin to carb ration my sugars were going over 190. So basically I gave it a couple of days and when back to what I was at before the change and sugars are find. I told my docs and they weren’t too happy with me and said for me to ALWAYS consult them first before doing anything like that. I told them the reason and showed them in my logbook when I changed to their’s and then back to mine and they understood me but want me to communicate with them before I take matters into my own hands. Just scared me when my sugars would shoot up to 224…granted having high blood sugars is part of having diabetes but still. I am 21 weeks with a little girl, I wanted to keep it a surprise until June but dear ol’ hubby just HAD to know. And even if he knew and I didn’t he wouldn’t be able to keep it from me. Sugars are great, A1C is the best it has EVER been since I got diagnosed in January 2002… I hope everything continues to go well, I am started to feel her moving around here and there, especially when I sit still for a while. When I went in to my ultrasound she was 11 oz, 7-9 inches long…amazing how they can tell all that from the ultrasound. Everything looked normal, the organs, the heart, the limbs, the head, the spine, and the ambilicol cord which was quite a relief and made me so happy. She looked like a little angel, or as my sister said an “alien angel”. I go in for my Fetal Echo March 16 to make sure the heart still looks good since it’ll be bigger. Still praying that everything continues to go well.
Hope all you ladies are doing well in your pregnancy, TTC process, or being mothers.
