Hey! Got my 16 week OB check-up yesterday. Baby looks fine :) He/she crossed his/her little legs and didn't let mummy and daddy see if it's a baby girl or a baby boy. Five more weeks to know!

Just got back from the 21 week check-up on Thursday. Everything looks good! They raised me up to 40 morning/30 evening insulin (70/30 mix) along with staying at the metformin at 500 morning/1000 evening. Baby is a little big, but only by about 6 days early. Best news though was that my A1C was down to 5.3! :) That's lower than before I was prego!

I'm a Type 2 Diabetic and mother of 2. My 2nd is 3 months old. The problem is THRUSH! :-P
We are both passing this back and forth to each other. I've been prescribed Nystatin and am also using Gencian Violet.
I'm assuming the yeast is hanging around due to the diabetes. Although, my numbers have been just as good as before.
I didn't have this with my first girl (even though I had diabetes then too).
Has anyone gone through this, and what did you do to stop this horrible cycle. I really don't want to formula feed. TY!!

My doctor has me aiming for under 140 one hour after meals, and under 90 when fasting (first thing in the morning).
I am 33 weeks pregnant and dealing with severe insulin resistance.
I also have my pump in my leg which absorption isn't as well.
Juggling numbers lots right now. Plus eating a really low carb diet.

Hi Rachel - I am a Type 1, not Type 2. We might have different starting points, not sure. My doctors were generally pleased with A1c's that are in the low 6's throughout my pregnancy - believe me, I try for better but I have never seen an A1c in 27 years that is in the 5's. Always 6.0 - 7. something .... My doctor seems to stress correcting with extra insulin- increasing my Lantus and Novolog, when it goes beyond 160 after I eat. If I over correct with insulin, I am crashing.
