Hi,

 

I have no idea if anyone still reads here but I am sure the odd Type 1 will still google and hopefully this site will come up.

 

Finally on my second IVF cycle I am Pregnant :) today I am 20 weeks and 2 days... Still a long way to go but everything looking good so far. Trying to keep blood sugar down is a full time job and I am not always successful but I test atleast ten times a day and I see doctors pretty regularly but mostly it comes down to the testing!

 

Good Luck

 

Congratulations! I am indeed an odd type 1 who just googled my way here. And I'm happy to have found it... I was just diagnosed as adult onset type 1 in December----as part of a fertility workup. I mean, I'm incredibly glad it got caught, and I didn't wind up in the hospital with DKA (my A1c was 11.5), but still. I am 39 years old, want to get pregnant, and am newly diagnosed: old AND diabetic! My reproductive endo wants me to go straight to ivf when my A1c is good enough.

Hi,

 

Sorry I have not been on here, the board moves kind of slowly and I forgot to see if anyone had responded.

 

My HBA1C at my first fertility appt was 8.9 (terrible I know) I went on a pump and went down to 7.2, in this pregnancy I was 6.8, and 6.3 and think I have little chance of going below 6 but I test regularly still and they are not unhappy with my bloods. My biggest challenge is the morning highs, they are crazy high and I have a huge basal and bolus to control it which always makes my sugars drop late morning.

 

I am over 30 weeks and everything looks good, I went for a scan today to check growth and baby is right on track, no extra growth, not under, no heart defects or spine problems and no excess fluid (all prevelant in type 1 diabetes pregnancies)..

 

I am having a c-section, just because it is safer for the baby and that is my priority.
