Isn't it funny when an old discussion of yours suddenly pops up again? And everyone thinks it's new? haha.
I just saw you're forum about being "37 and home alone" and first thought was: Wow she looks great for her age!
then: gosh, I haven't seen her post since this forum discussion!
then: uh-oh
then: Why are people asking if you're okay? It's been MONTHS

haha. Hope everything is just fantastic!

Hi Jackie ... thanks for adding me as a friend ... my pregnancy is going really well. This past month I saw my endo. and I brought my A1C from 9.7 to 6.3 in just 3 months ... I am so excited about that. I am now 6 months pregnant, and after my first trimaster I haven't had many problems at all. Right now I'm just working on keeping my blood sugars below 200, they seem to always go high at night, and before lunch. It's a challenge, but I've got to tell you, it's all worth it. ( Misty )

I was not in good control until right before I got pregnant. As soon as my A1c got below 7 I got pregnant. I was not strict on my diet, but I was very strict on my BS readings. I did everything I could to keep them as close to 100 as possible and definitely kept my A1c below 7 and as close to 6 as possible. I had more trouble with lows when I was pregnant than highs though. I mean scary lows. Low enough and long enough that I became hypo-unaware which is horribly scary. However, I had 2 very healthy pregnancies. Like I said before, the first was easier than the 2nd, but that could be the difference in my age. I was almost 30 when the first was born and I had just turned 33 when the second was born. The key for me was having a really good CDE and an excellent OBGYN. The only problems I had was high blood pressure and I really don't think that had anything to do with the diabetes, but rather the pregnancies because that was the only time I have ever had high BP. I had to have C-section with the first because he got hung on my vertebra and could not come out and therefore I had a section with the second because of the first. I healed very easily with no infection or other secondary problems. Well, I don't know if I answered all your questions or not. If not, please just ask. I just got my baby to bed and I am kind of brain dead, but maybe I answered everything. God bless.

Ask me anything you want. I had really healthy pregnancies, both times. The second one was harder than the first, but I was 3 years older too. I have 2 beautiful, very healthy kids. Don't let diabetes keep you from doing anything you want to do. It shouldn't be dibilitating. God bless!
