Hi… I’m 26 and recently found I’m pregnant!! It wasn’t a planned pregnancy but I’m over the moon! Sadly, the babys father and I had separated not long before I found out - but he is being supportive and thankfully I have an amazing family around me… I was diagnosed T1 at 18 and had a few hospital admissions back in the denial days. I can’t say that my BC has been perfect and when I conceived I barely checked my sugar levels at all - but I use my meds religiously, do not suffer from any complications and I’m rarely ill.
I had a recent HBA1C result of 7.8… not terrible but not great either. I was prescribed 5mg folic acid and Vitamin D supplements from the doctor and I had some bloods done not long after, which showed folic acid at 20 (range is 5-10) and B12 of 837 (330-660)! They have now advised me not to take the folic acid everyday but once a week instead as im almost double! Has anyone else had this?
I’m booked in for a scan on Monday but I’m worried I’ve already hurt the baby from having high sugars I’ve read up about it online (bad idea) and seen some down heartening things that have made me start to worry. Since I found out, I’ve tried my best to keep my sugars in range and I even ordered the new Freestyle Libre which arrived today. It’s expensive but amazing and key to help me get to my goal of a 5ish hba1c over the next few months. I really want to do my best to have a healthy baby but I’m scared of any damage I’ve already done…
Can anyone relate?
