My Baby is Here!

Recommended Posts

Kathryn10

Hi everyone,

 

I had my baby girl last week. I was induced at 38 weeks 2 days because the doctors noticed some decelerations in her heart rate on the non-stress tests and they thought the cord was clamping down on her somewhere. I'm glad I was induced because she ended up being 9lbs. 8oz.! Despite my a1c being 5.0 for the majority of the pregnancy and my blood sugars running on the lower side for most of labor/delivery, the baby's blood sugar was low when she was born so she was given a bit of formula to bring it up. After that, her blood sugars were perfect for the remainder of our hospital stay. It's crazy how you forget about all of those sleepless nights with the first baby when you decide to try for the second one ....

Aaaaawwwwww! Congratulations! Can we all be aunties and uncles now? I'll be an auntie to both kids since I have none of my own.

 

And when are we going to see pictures?

Thanks everyone!! I can't say for sure if her weight was due to my diabetes or not. My endo said that we couldn't have done much better blood sugar-wise so maybe she was just destined to be a monster baby? My other daughter was 8lbs. 12oz. and I had slightly worse control over my blood sugars during that pregnancy, so who knows.

Well you just create big ole babies, don't you? Congrats on how great you kept your DM in check! Get some sleep, momma!

Awww, congrats - she is really gorgeous. And I should not be looking at pictures of babies as I am really broody. Sounds like you did really well during your pregnancy - hope you can get some sort of rest in the next few weeks (hard with two, so take it easy).

Kathryn!

 

Congratulations! I'm so excited for you! She is beautiful! Love her hair!

 

You did an amazing job with BG control! 5.0%? I can't even imagine. At some point, I might pick your brain a little about how you did that!

 

My husband and I are both big/tall people. I'm 6'1''... So I'm not surprised if I have a baby similar in size.

 

I'm so nosy since I'm a new T1 pregnant mommy - I want to hear all of the details of her birth. If you have time (haha, I know funny, right) and want to share stuff with me, feel free to PM!
