I am just curious about what your A1C levels need to be to get pregnant. I know that if you are planning on getting pregnant and have diabetes you have to act as if you are pregnant for better results. Just looking for some guidance.
Different doctors will tell you different things, but mine has told me it needs to be at 7 or below. One girl I know had her doctor tell her 6. Somewhere between 6 and 7 would be my best guess.
My diabetes team at the time (I've since switched teams due to a change in insurance companies) wanted my A1C below 7 for 2 consecutive tests...so for 6 months I needed to be under 7. It was a lot of hard work, a lot of testing, a lot of communicating with my doctors but at the end of the day, it was really great because that's what I was doing for the entirety of my pregnancies.
I'm going to the High Risk Ob right now and they told me we can not start trying till i was below 6.5
Hi Dkinsey! I was told under 7.0 by my high-risk OB in the USA with DD#1 (5 years ago) and just this past year, told under 6.0 by my diabetic specialist in Argentina with DD#2. Our new babe is almost 3 months old now.
Best of luck to you! This is an excellent network of women here. Also check out the 'Oh Baby' group if you haven't already (there are a few exclamation points in the name somewhere).
6.5 was my endo's requirement.
I was told by both my OB and endo for this baby under 6.0. When I had my first child it was under 7.0.
Hi, I'm currently pregnant (32 weeks) and they say 6.5% or under.
