hey! I havent got the go-ahead either, my A1C turned out to be 7.6 ( but down from 10 two months ago, so I'm happy). 29, D for 6 years. starting Lantus and Humulin on saturday, sort of terrified!

Hey, just wanted to say hello, it seems we're in sort of the same boat, T2 and ttc. I see that you take shots as well as oral ( I'm guessing metformin?). I'm on metformin, and due to start shots this weekend, and would love to hear how that works for you.
Good luck with ttc!

He looks a whole lot bigger than 15.2 in the picture -- my 4-yo stallion is about 15.0 and he doesn't look anything like that big.

Your Morgan is gorgeous, but wow is he big! What's his breeding? We breed the Lippitts, which are the smaller sub-breed that has very strong ties to the foundation stallion and basically run between 14 and 15 hands. Your boy looks a LOT taller than that! Or is it just the camera angle that makes him look so big...?
