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!

Hi Jessica, welcome. Your current A1C would not be safe to conceive. Drs generally like it tto be 7 or lower. How often do you test your sugars. The best way I've found to control is both through low carb diet and frequent testing and adjustment of sugar levels. Eat and adjust insulin to your meter. If you haven't read it I'd recommend books Think Like a Pancreas, or also even Diabetes Solution by Richard Bernstein. I'd try approaching this from a new angle. You can do it! Best wishes.

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.

39 Weeks today and going strong. Waiting for baby Lauren to make her appearance any time now. On scarily huge dose of insulin (50 units basal and 50+ units of humalog), but still maintaining pretty good control and no more lows in the past week (usually between 70 and 120, extremely rare to be above 140).

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.

Comment by Super_sally on March 13, 2012 at 9:45pm

38 weeks now. Off to see my Obe in a while. I guess she'll do U/S to measure the baby. Have to discuss birth plan with her. I don't want to be induced!

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:
