"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…"
"I had a planned C-section because my son was breech (and as it turns out the back of his head was stuck in my rib cage...). When I first became pregnant I wanted so deeply to have a vaginal birth, but it just didn't work out that way and I had…"
"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…"
"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…"
"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…"
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
For T1Ds who'd like to meet, discuss, share their lives (D and otherwise) with others who understand what they're going through. We can discuss anything up to and including T1D.I'd love to use this group to actually get to meet some of you.See More
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.
