I need a little reassurance. Did any of you have a healthy baby despite a less than stellar A1c? Or maybe just starting out with not-so-great control in the first trimester?
I'm 17 weeks pregnant with our second baby and I have type 1 diabetes. My blood sugar has been tough to control for the past couple of weeks, and it makes me afraid that I won't have control as great as I did (A1c was always 5.4 or 5.6) while pregnant with my first, who was 8 pounds 10 oz. and perfectly healthy. I know pregnancy makes this stuff even more unpredictable and I have to expect to be increasing my insulin throughout my pregnancy, but still... It's scary, and I'm feeling a lot of self-doubt!
My last pre-pregnancy A1c was a 6.2, and the glucose averages on my meter would indicate about the same right now. That's pretty good in general, but not great for pregnancy and it's included a couple of 200+ highs. When I see something like that, I'm just positive I'm pickling my baby!!!
I'm going to do what's right for my baby and seriously crack down, but I'm still so worried. :(
