Hello! I got the okay from my doctor to start trying to get pregnant! My last A1c was 6.4 (I had started my pump only a couple months prior so I'm hoping it is lower at my next appt). I would SO APPRECIATE any/all advice from other diabetic moms!
I know my doc said 6.4 is safe to conceive but did your docs recommend lower?
How strict is strict enough?? Did you cut out all foods that may spike your BG?
Did you stick to a specific diet/meal plan?
How hard is it...seriously I need the non-sugar coated version...is this the hardest thing you have done? Was it easier than you had expected? Were you terrified you would screw something up?
I am seriously up for any advice you ladies have!! I have researched online, looked in books, etc but it just seems more comforting to hear from real people who have been there and who understand.
Thank you all!!
