I am 8 weeks pregnant now, but my a1c is 7.3. I live in Japan, so maybe my doctors have different expectations, but my Endo said this was fine. Of course I don’t want it to go higher either.
My last pregnancy my a1c wasn’t ideal either, and of course all the changing insulin needs added challenges. My baby was 10lb 4 oz, vaginal delivery, NO epidural. I wouldn’t want to do that again, but now I have a perfectly healthy and happy toddler.
Try not to worry too much, that won’t help either. Do what you can, and enjoy your pregnancy! Congratulations!
