Hi, Everybody I'm new to the forum and blogs. I'm starting this blog so i can have an outlet for my diabetes and pregnancy. And hopefully get advice along the way. As i greatly need it.
I'm type 2 and 5 week prego. This is my 4th pregnancy, the first i had a healthy little girl (she is now 6 1/2 ). The 2nd and 3rd sadly ended in miscarriage, both at around 8 to 10 weeks. With those pregnancies my sugar was out of control. BEFORE THE 2ND I CONSULTED MY OB ABOUT TTC AND SHE SAID MY SUGAR WASN'T AN ISSUE UNTIL THE END OF THE PREGNANCY SO UNKNOWINGLY WE TRIED AND CONCEIVED ON THE 1ST TRY. WELL NO SHOCKER I MISCARRIED, ABOUT A YEAR LATER I GOT PREGO AGAIN AND SWITCHED DOC'S. THIS ONE INFORMED ME THAT IT IS CRUCIAL IN THE BEGINNING TO HAVE YOUR BGL'S UNDER CONTROL. BUT BY THE TIME WE GOT MY SUGAR UNDER CONTROL I MC AGAIN. WITH THIS ONE I HAD GOOD BS'S MY LAST A1C WAS 5.8. BUT I AM STILL NERVOUS AND SCARED IT WILL HAPPEN AGAIN. NOW I'M HAVING SOME HIGH LEVELS, MY DIET IS THE SAME BUT I'VE BEEN NAUSEOUS AND HAVING BACK PAIN FROM NOT SLEEPING WELL AND HAVE BEEN TOLD THESE THINGS CAN CAUSE MY SUGAR TO RISE. SO NOW EVERY TIME I SEE A HIGH # I GET SICK TO MY STOMACH THINKING I COULD MC AGAIN. WELL THAT'S MY STORY SO FAR, I HAVE MY 1ST OB APPT. TOMORROW. I'M PRAYING FOR GOOD NEWS.
WISH ME LUCK
