Comment by Diabetes to Go yesterday

Hi everyone,

So glad to be hear and meeting other women pregnant with type one. I had my first baby over a year ago and am planning my second pregnancy now.

Can anyone relate to that 2 week wait... when you think you might be pregnant but aren't sure because pregnancy tests won't be correct yet?

Just went through that last month... and now we are trying again... I had to really be careful to not have any lows for the last few weeks because I was having so many when we thought I could be pregnant.

Hello Everyone! I just joined a few days ago, and already am sooo glad that I have. I am 33 and 5 weeks pregnant with T1. I had a miscarriage 3 months ago and now am in sheer terror of it happening again. My a1c is "okay", but definitely not amazeballs lol Looking to these forums for any advice or help I can get along the way :)

Tamara: Real ginger ale was AWESOME for me. If I threw up what I ate and doubted I could keep down more food yet, I'd pour myself the equivalent amount of carbs in ginger ale and slowly sip it. There's also crystallized ginger or ginger candies, which you could easily keep in a purse or pocket.

I also kept diet ginger ale around.

Just make sure you get a brand made from real ginger. Not all supermarket brands are. I went to a health food store and got Blue Sky brand.

I'm 9 weeks pregnant with my third child and running low all day the last few days. I'm struggling with a lot of nausea/vomiting as well. My first time around was very similar and ended up in the hospital several times. I have an appointment in 3 days with my endo and we'll adjust my doses then but what tips do any of you have for until then on keeping my numbers up when eating is close to impossible.

Does low sugar affect the baby while pregnancy? Also what about the occassional highs?

If anyone is interested, I started a "Mommies with Diabetes" group on Facebook. I certainly don't want to take anything away from this group, I know some prefer different social media mediums over others. Here's a link:

Hi Heather I used to feel a bit like you but now I just see the extra scans as a bonus to see my babys a lot more than most. There is currently a petition going around for pregnant ladies to get three scans rather than the 12 wk and 20 week they get now. I feel very fortunate to know that my baby is receiving the best possible care x

Hi! I have watched this group off and on for the last few years to learn more about being a preg t1, and now here I am at 25 weeks wondering why I haven't been reading everyday lately :) So great to have a place to turn. I have been a t1 for about 28yrs. Been on a pump about 4yrs. I just got back from my 2nd loooooong ultrasound and echocardiogram. All is well with me and the baby. Lots of testing. lots of basal changing. Its a constantly moving target, but Im doing it. But I got my A1C down to the best its ever been. :) And I feel really good about that. This is a lot of work. But I have a great little team of and Endo-OB-GYN and a rockstar diabetes educator. I had my last ultrasound and echo (bc I'm 39 too!) about a month ago. And they couldn't get all the heart pics they wanted so they had me go back. And today again , they couldn't really get all the pics they wanted. An ultrasound dr came in (not my usual Endo-OB/GYN)to ask me if I was ok with them not getting all the pics they wanted. Huh?? And it just felt like they are SEARCHING and SEARCHING for a problem. And nothing is wrong! Thank god. The dr admitted they are a little anal about these things for people "like me," and I felt my blood pressure rising. I was so scared to get preg, and then so far, I really have to count my blessings, because all has been good! And most of my fears about actually doing this have minimized too. Until today when this ultrasound tech is poking and prodding and trying to get our little girl to turn around/over so they can take more pics of her heart. And then it just felt so unfair to have this big HIGH RISK label stamped all over, with t1 and my age. Sigh. And now its not just me, but affecting her. Is anyone else struggling with this kind of thing?
