Ok, so my husband and I have been trying to get pregnant. My A1c was 7.0 at last check and I thought my sugars were doing better. My gyn/ob put me on a round of clomid in march. Well I ovulated March 20/21 and saw my endo mar 22. Imagine my panic when I learned my A1c was 7.7 and the endo recommended waiting before trying to get pregnant. My husband and I had tried just days before. She recommended I fax my blood sugar logs after 1 week.
I checked my sugars more frequently and was trying to cover using my pump but Mar 21-28 my sugars were routinely 150-180 after dinner and would not come down unless I was taking 3-4 TIMES the correct dose my pump suggested. I faxed my results over last tuesday. Got a phone call Friday saying they got the fax and if I did not hear back I should call on Monday.
The next week was better. One low on monday (I often get lows during my period) and generally not over 140 after meals. Still If I ate more than 30-40 carbs after 5 pm my sugars would spike to 160 and stay there unless I covered x3 or x4.
Friday I had some spotting which stopped sat afternoon so i thought I was getting my period, especially with the cramping I was having. The cramping has continued on and off since Friday. Monday I had a positive pregnancy test and actually physically went to the office so they could download my pump with another week of data. Imagine my surprise when I was told my endo was on vacation. I explained I had a positive pregnancy test that morning and asked if another dr in the practice could look over my numbers. they said another dr can look but they rarely make changes in settings for other patients.
I left and when home quite upset. Mon evening the spotting resumed and I called my gyn Tuesay morning. Today she had me come in to see a dr who was covering (she was out of town caring for her sick father). he did a transvaginal ultrasound, but he said it was hard to read. there is a spot that could be the implantation site (he said it was very low and I would be high risk). The urine pregnanct test barely showed I was pregnant. He ordered a quantitative HCG and I should know later today.
He seemed to think there was a risk of miscarriage, but also I could just be SO early along I am 4 weeks and 2 days, he put me on progesterone just to be safe.
I see my regular gyn on friday. Oh and my endo finally got around to calling me back last night and lower my sensitivity by 4 mg/dl per unit. Of course last night I ate dinner and I spiked to 160 and got stuck there until I tripled the corrected regardless of the change in settings.
I am going to try to restart my CGM. I had a lot of trouble as my sugars usually spike about 20 when I first wake up so it never calibrated right.
I really think I need to switch endos. The office is a pain they never answer their phones. I teach and am in a classroom all day and there is only a 40 minute window where I am free to call and they actually answer their phones. But the only good recommendations are for dr that are at hospitals 1.25+ hrs away (and NOT taking into consideration Atlanta traffic) I am worried if now is a bad time for that or is it more important that ever.
Any and all advice is GREATLY appreciated. Especially what to eat such as carbs (how many, how often and how spread apart).
