A1C 5.8. Dr. would prefer it around 5.2 but I'm pretty happy with it for now, will keep working chipping away at that A1C, it's the best it's ever been however :)

Fighting a massive battle of keeping my numbers down but also feeling knackered most of the time, lack of sleep its not easy being diabetic,pregnant and aneamic.
Doing my best for the baby n me but it is hardwork just counting down the weeks but love feeling the baby moving around in my stomach and seeing it get stronger and stronger.Not long left now so must get off my a** and get shopping,(excited)lol
Pray everyone is doing well.xxxx

7 weeks... craving everything unhealthy under the sun... Cheetos, Doritos, fried chicken, pizza, Subway Spicy Italian, cheeseburgers, Chinese (fried stuff only, please)...dang it sure does suck wanting so much stuff that I shouldn't be eating. Ok - that's all. Thanks :)

Just had the 9 week ultrasound and baby measured perfectly! Heartbeat was right where it should be and the feet were moving like crazy! Sometimes it all leaves me speechless :)

Thank you yes this is my first I'm so excitied.. Congradulations to you your so close now I'm sorry about your fridge that would frustrate me also.

Rebecca -- that would frustrate me to no end!! I can totally sympathize. During pregnancy, I tried to eat at home all the time. It was certainly easier to control there!

PS - Congrats Jamie! How exciting! Is this your first?

Need to vent - no need for anyone to respond, I just want to get this out of my system!

My Husband and I have been remodeling our kitchen for the past 6 weeks (we are crazy, thank you) and as of today it is supposed to be complete - and is. The sink and dishwasher - the last two remaining parts - are hooked up and working. YAY! No more take-out! I can cook to satisfy my cravings and choose more healthy options, and get on a regular food schedule again, just in time for serious insulin resistance to hit (I'm 30 weeks and it has started in the past week or so)!
Yesterday our brand-new fridge decided to stop working. It's a fancy one with the temps on the outside door so we watched in wonder as the numbers crawled up to 50+ degrees F. Called the manufacturer, it's under warranty, but will be FRIDAY before they can come out and do anything about it!!
All I want is a home-cooked meal! And I know I can still have that in general, but without a fridge going to get the groceries we need for just the next day or so will be just like eating out! ARGH!!!

OK, pity-party over. Thanks for letting me get that off my chest. Somehow I knew you ladies would understand. :)
