I think our bodies are all just different and it's really hard to account for why one person gets one a1c and another gets an entirely different level despite both ppl working their butts off. Also as a type1 the A1C is great but the real indicator of how well you're doing is by your daily readings. I have plenty of high BG levels and also some lows which can balance the out. I'm delighted to have and A1C of 5.8 but I know that I still need to work on my daily BG readings. 6.8 is great-I spent the first part of my pregnancy comparing myself to other ppl who seemed to have way better control than me but since then I've changed my perspective. I'm happy that our baby is healthy and I'm working my butt off to keep it that way, that's all we can do :)

My last A1C, which was about 6 weeks ago, was 4.8. It was my lowest ever and my first A1C on the pump. My OB said I should earn a free visit for that! :) I am heading into the start of my 27th week. My insulin needs rose a good bit around week 23, so I think the average might have risen a bit with my learning how to judge my needs in these new weeks, but overall I had had a pretty easy time of things. In fact, I feel as though I have been much less strict with my carbs and diet due to pregnancy. I just hope I can return to my old ways post baby! :)

Holy Sharon I have never had an A1c that low!! My Ob-Gyn was really impressed that I have mine down to 6.8!! I don't know how you guys get such low levels?! I am working my butt off and being on the pump has made the world of difference so am hoping this pregnancy will maybe not end with such an early delivery (went at 35 weeks last time - at 16 weeks now)

First tri screening today went very well! And the OB confirmed that I can wear the pump throughout delivery :)

Oh goodness Sharon! I hope the water guzzling continues so you can keep baby healthy!
Comment by Sharon Fung on August 12, 2011 at 11:36pm
was told today that I'm at risk for preterm labour because of the cramping I've been having (20 weeks). The main culprit? Not drinking enough water! I've been guzzling the stuff down all day. I've always been bad for drinking water but had no idea that dehydration could be so dangerous during pregnancy. Lesson learned!

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
