The best thing you can do is to focus on getting that A1C down and getting good nutrition into your body. Like you, I was switched from meds to insulin for pregnancy purposes and it worked out great for me. I got my A1C down to 5.0 for most of my pregnancy and it was never an issue. My high blood pressure WAS an issue, though. But my sugars were very good. Get yours down! You can do it! I followed the Weston A Price Foundation's diet for pregnant women (minus the grains, which are too high in carbs for me and most other diabetics). My daughter is a beautiful and healthy 7-week-old now.

 

Here is a link to the WAPF diet. I actually have it on a magnet on my fridge:

Good luck! You will be fine.
