"Hi-thanks for your comments! I did have T1 with my first pregnancy. I have bee T1 since just before my 4th birthday! After delivery my insulin needs did return to pre-pregnancy, sort of-breastfeeding can make your BG go low and so my insulin needs…"

"Wow, that is a lot on your plate! We're thrilled with the idea of a single-child family - I can't imagine having a toddler around every day while managing T1 and pregnancy! One day babysitting my young nephews and I'm wiped out! For…"

Just need to vent....

It's been a while since I've been on...I am pregnant with baby 2, 15 weeks along with a girl. It is really challenging having a VERY active 3 year old, a full time job (I'm a Kindergarten teacher), have T1 and being pregnant! AHH! I don't think I have slept through the night in months either due to my Dexcom ringing with a low, needing to pee, or my son having a bad dream or just wanting to cuddle in the middle of the night. On top of everything we just bought a house, close a week from today,…See More

"It really is tough for us T1D's, even in pre-conception! I have a 2.5 year old, and I am currently 12 weeks pregnant. I started TTC this time with an A1c of 7. I knew this was higher than optimal, and it was not a number I ever saw when I was…"

"Thanks Kristin! I completely remember following your journey with baby 1 so it was nice to hear from you! My A1C was down to 7.1 in June (trending down) so my endo was happy. Met with the high risk OB yesterday for a pre-conception appt although we…"

Kristin replied to Andrea G's discussion 'Advice for 2nd baby' in the group Oh! BABY!!!
"I can totally relate to this. My son is now 3 and I am 15 weeks pregnant. We started trying with an A1c of 7.4. My endo saw that I was not getting it down, but based on my good numbers with the last pregnancy told me that she knew that I could do it…"

Megan Ritter replied to Andrea G's discussion 'Advice for 2nd baby' in the group Oh! BABY!!!
"That's a tough one! I hate that as T1D we can't just randomly say, hey, let's procreate now! Lol. My endo allowed me for both pregnancies to start trying once my A1C was under 7. I was 6.9 the first time around and 6.8 this time…"

Advice for 2nd baby

Hi all-It has been a while since I posted here. I currently have a very healthy and happy (and talkative!) 2.5 year old and we are ready to try for baby 2. Right now my last A1C was at 7.1 which is not at all where I want it to be pre-conception. I have another appt. with my endo at the end of this month to check is again, however, I am fertile NOW. I really want to start trying this month even without the go-ahead from my doctor....the timing would work out really well for us...Am I crazy?…See More

Hi Andrea!

Thanks so much for your comment! I corresponded with Katie yesterday and she is adding me to the listservs/forum. Unfortunately, I'm going to be out of town on August 11th (I would change my travel plans for this if I could!) but am going to do everything in my power to come to the last two meetings in August. I go to school in Rhode Island, so I guess I'll only get a taste of the group this month, and be able to really get involved after I graduate in May and am back in NY full time again.

Thanks so much for the comment and friend-add!
