Thank you everyone I had felt like I was alone but seeing
all your comments give me strength and hope that everything will be
ok with the baby.
Just a lot of prayers,more hardwork and fighting for the little
blessing in my belly.

Nausea is always a good sign super sally. I can understand how frustrating things must be for you right now though. Your numbers sound great though!

Osob I delivered my daughter at 34 weeks. She was 4.5 lbs and a healthy little fighter. Orginally was to be in nicu for 6 weeks, was out in 6 days.

It is really hard Osob but know you have done everything you can and you have doctors who know what they are doing to look after you. I delivered my son at 35 weeks (my waters broke early) and he was already 8lb as my control wasn't that great in my first pregnancy. He was actually pretty close to fine even that early - had some jaundice and the usual IV to adjust his sugars but other than that no issues. Your Docs will make sure that they pick the safest time for you and baby if they have to induce you early or plan a c-section. I had prayed to have a vaginal delivery and the only reason I got one is because he came so early - my Doc informed me he was already planning a c-section due to his size. There is power in prayer so keep your hopes up and your communication open with your Docs. Let us know how you are doing.

Feeling like a failure guys just can't do anymore then I already am doing
but yesterday was informed that the baby is large and would have to come out
early then planned. I am nearly 33 weeks so they said after two weeks they will
make the final decision,my numbers r higher then they was at the start and iam taking
a lot more insulin ratios have gone up but it does not seem to do anything.
Now I got metformin to take on top of everything else,being aneamic is not helping
with numbers either.
Still praying n hoping for the best even though I feel very down.

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! :)
Comment by Heather-E on August 16, 2011 at 5:23pm
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)
Comment by Kate on August 16, 2011 at 5:02pm
First tri screening today went very well! And the OB confirmed that I can wear the pump throughout delivery :)
