My Endo Thinks I Should Be Pregnant All The Time

Had a visit with my endo post pregnancy. My AIC is up to 7.1. Baby is 8 months old now. He wishes all his patients would stay pregnant becuase they are the best controlled in this time. I did so well the year up to pregnancy and during pregnancy. My A1Cs were 5-6-6.0. So good. But I have to say sleepless nights, working part-time with an infant, go back to work full-time when baby was 6 months (I live in Canada and most normal people get 1 year maternity leave), having a collicky baby (what is all this crying about), and then losing my job in the last month, doesn't leave much room for getting below 7.0.
Sure he was trying to be funny, but really, this is a bad time and I know I can do better, but I'm not liking the humour.

The good thing is that is snowed 30 cm last night (about 12 inches), so I am going to reduce my basal, get my shovel and get that sidewalk and driveway cleared. This is for sure the last snowfall and I'm going to enjoy it, get some exercise and work on getting my AIC down below 7.0.

Thanks Josephine. Luckily the collicky phase has passed. Phew. But it was 3 full months. Shes 8 months now, and things seem almost normal. Our oldest son, was a dream baby, so I wasn't prepared for that. Glad its behind me. Thanks for the thoughts.
