I'M FINALLY PREGNANT!!
About 2 months ago I completely gave up. It was too much and I couldn't take it anymore. My husband and I just decided it was better to quit trying and start saving for an adoption sometime down the road.
It's not unusual for me to have irregular periods, so when I was late this month, I just thought that I was late. But then last Sunday my numbers were completely out of control. I thought it might be a pump failure or site problems, but after I got up on Monday morning I finally got them back down into a normal range. I honestly didn't think I was pregnant, but I decided to pick up some pregnancy tests when I went to the store Monday afternoon. I took the first one first thing Tuesday morning and it was positive. I'm still in shock and I don't think I'll believe it until I actually see the baby.
I got into my endo yesterday and had the pregnancy confirmed by my PCP and she referred me to an OB here in town. I saw my endo a few weeks ago and my a1c was 5.9 and it was up to 6.2 yesterday because of all the highs last week. The educator and endo weren't too worried about all the highs, just had me up my basals more than I already had them and fixed my carb:insulin ratios.
Now we're just asking everyone to pray for no miscarriage. By my calculations I'm about 6 weeks 3 days (give or take a day) and I see the OB on Tuesday morning for an ultrasound and blood work. We have an unfortunate, recent, history of miscarriage in my family and if I lost this baby after trying for all this time, I'll be devastated.
