So I'm excited to be getting an Animas Ping pretty soon, but the company providing the insulin pump is requiring 21 days of my blood glucose readings. Since I rarely check mine, should I make them…Continue

An Update

I haven't logged on since my frantic posts early on in my pregnancy- I got pregnant on accident with a terrible A1C and I was terrified that something was going to be wrong with my baby. Well, my sweet Waverly was born January 9th via c-section and with the exception of her sugar being a little low at birth she was perfect. She was 8 lbs. and only delivered by c-section at 39 weeks because I was induced and her heart rate was dropping after contractions. So, everyone, do not be discouraged or…See More

An Update!

I posted in April about finding out I was four weeks pregnant, and now I am 19 weeks pregnant. I wish I could say that everything has been going smoothly, but it hasn't. I see my perinatologist every two weeks with regular phone calls to their nurse twice a week to report my sugars and my high risk OB once a month. I had to have laproscopic surgery two weeks ago due to ovarian torsian caused by a cyst, and they removed the cyst and my ovary. My sugars haven't been too bad, I have a few highs…See More
