This is a huge deal for me! This is my 4th pregnancy, and I’m 20 weeks pregnant. I’ve done fairly well with my first 3 even though it was rough towards the end of each. My current pregnancy is going exceptionally well! My blood sugars have been so well controlled, and my insulin has been increased slightly this week.
To celebrate: I found out what my HA1C is today from the labs I did Tuesday. At the beginning of pregnancy, I was at 7.8 (yikes!). It had been gradually coming down. Today, I found out it is at 5.8!!! I don’t remember the last time my numbers have been so good! I’ve had diabetes for 13 years, and this is by far the best I’ve ever had them!!!
I’m so hoping to have an easy 2nd half of the pregnancy with the baby actually going full-term this time (2nd and 3rd babies were preemies by 6 weeks and 4 weeks respectively. 3rd pregnancy I was on bed rest for 3 weeks with preeclamsia [was told by OB and FM drs that it had nothing to do with the diabetes since I was pretty controlled then]). Wish me luck!
