Hello all,
I want to take a moment and thank everyone here for all the advice and help. My baby boy was born a couple of weeks ago at 40+6 weeks. I was induced, but Cervadil pretty much put me into labor that allowed me to have a vaginal delivery (with no pain medication). I was controlling my BS until the last stage of labor. We are both healthy and doing well :)

Hello Everyone!
I wanted to announce the birth of my beautiful baby girl born July 6, 2012 by emergency c-section. She is perfect & dear hubby and I couldn't be happier or more in love with her. Hope everyone is doing well and their pregnancies are going smoothly.

Hello Everyone! I'm 32 yrs old and a T1 diabetic for 24 years. Blood sugars haven't ever been great in my life, despite my attempts at control, but my husband and I got a little "surprise" and I am now almost 12 weeks pregnant! This will be my first, although I miscarried in October 2011 and we are excited but I'm really nervous! My A1C before conception was 7.6 and my last A1C earlier this month was 6.7 so things are going much better and my weekly average is 119. I'm testing my blood sugar about 12 times a day and they are relatively good. I'm not working, just concentrating on blood sugar control and dealing with "morning sickness" which is really afternoon and evening sickness for me. Anyway, I don't know any diabetic women personally AT ALL and I feel pretty alone. I had to change my anti-depressants and stop taking my medication for ADHD. I am alone at home a lot and sometimes feel down and thought I could use some support. There are so many unexpected changes happening to my body, which I guess is normal, but I feel like I have no control over anything my body is doing. Sometimes I think I'm too in-tune to the changes but isn't that usual for diabetics?! At almost 12 weeks, I've already gained almost 10 pounds, even with the throwing up. This is making me really nervous and I don't know if it's normal. I feel like I'm "showing" a little, which seems really early to me too and I'm afraid I'm gaining too much weight. I am 5'2" and was about 118 lbs before getting pregnant and I'm about 126-128 now. Before getting pregnant, I had been maintaining a 25 lbs weight loss from about 8 months prior but I haven't really been able to workout since the morning sickness started. Do you guys have any idea why the rapid weight gain or if it's normal? Is it from taking more insulin? I have bumped my basal rates up slightly, I still take less than .8 an hour and my I;C ratio is up to 1:12. Maybe I'm eating too much?! Should I try to eat less? I don't know, any support would be helpful. Thanks everyone in advance!

Hey all- I was really active on this forum when I was pregnant last summer. I gave birth to my baby 9.4 lbs, 20 inches with emergency c section and pre eclampsia. It wasn't pretty, but my baby is almost one year old now and is so beautiful and healthy.

We are pregnant with baby #2 now- at 16 weeks. We plan to have this be our last pregnancy. A1c is at 6.1% right now. I got it down to 5.9% when pregnant last summer.

Hoping for the best this time around and that there are very minor complications.

I was not super active in this forum during my pregnancy but I did read a lot of y'alls posts. I wanted to post a picture of our sweet girl, Emma Grace born on 4/29/12 weighing 6lbs 15oz/20 inches. She has been a joy! Now I'm just dealing with Breastfeeding lows. I also lost all of my baby weight 17 days after giving birth!! woo hoo!!

Thanks sally! And congrats on your baby!

My husband and I have been ttc for about 8 months now, and nothing. I know it's my a1c and I have been trying so hard to get it down! It's 12 or higher now I have type 1 for about 14 hrs now on injections. I was on the pump in my teen years for about a month but the infusions burned...that's the only reason I got off it. Anyways my question is does anyone have any advice on what I need to do besides the obvious get my a1c down, diet exercise and take meds.

I'm at 27 weeks and over the last week have really hit some insulin resistance. My rates are now double what they were pre-pregnancy. With DD#1, I experienced slightly more resistance but it was later, so we'll see how this compares.
