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!!

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.

Lovin' all these baby pics! Congrats Melissa, mOnl, and Cherise :)

My husband and I have decided to start trying to conceive Baby #2. Baby #1 Trysten is doing great. He's now 6 months old. Some may think that's close together but he'll be probably close to 2 by the time Baby #2 is born. Oh here's a picture of Trysten:

Comment by Nancy on February 23, 2012 at 1:53pm

Congrats Melissa, He's gorgeous. A 10lb+ baby is definitely easier via C-section. I love big babies, I don't feel as clumsy!

Comment by MelissaBL on February 23, 2012 at 9:01am

Just wanted to let you all know that we welcomed BabyBL #2 on Feb. 13th. Repeat C-section at 38w4d. A1c ranged from 6.0-6.7% throughout pregnancy. (Was 7.0 at conception, but quickly brought it down.) Baby was perfectly healthy at birth with normal BG, but was TEN and a HALF POUNDS. Oy. My big boy. :) We are all doing great.
