Congratulations! Fabulous news. That will be one Special Baby. :) That A1c is unbelievable for a pregnant Woman. Good going.

p.s. LOL I think conceiving at age 60 is a Surprise, not age 35. :D

That is awesome and just warms my heart. Reminds me of how I felt 24 years ago with my pregnancy and similar A1c result. Its a lot of work and oh so well worth it!! Best wishes to you and baby.
