I am hoping for some encouragement. I've had type 1 diabetes for about a year and i've stuggled with blood glucose control. Aic was 6.3 in july, but I bounce a lot 291 in am, 81 before lunch . . . That kind of thing. Just found out I am unexpectedly pregnant. I have been blessed by two trouble-free pregnancies and two wonderful, healthy children. But everything I read about type 1 and diabetes says blood-glucose needs to be in control before conception. I've struggled more of late. Maybe early prenancy? I am terrified that this baby will be unhealthy because his mom was an idiot. Has anyone had a positive outcome in a similar situation?
Mother nature has helped me a lot during my pregnancy. I am 44 with heart disease, hbp and type 2 diabeties with insluin instead of oral meds. Both my blood pressure has went down, and my sugar level went down with the pregnancy. When I hit about 27-- 28 weeks sugars shot back up--went back on insulin. I dont know if you can take the oral meds while pregnant--you would have to ask a Dr. If .God has blessed you with a little one--.His grace will be enough to keep you.
i had gestational diabetics in all 3 preganncies, the third leaving me with type 2 diabetic. i have had a confirmed unplanned pregnancy and am worried as i have had 3 c s-ections and 4th wil also be a c-section. I am expecting to take extra care with diet, try to exercise like swimming and walking and also i expect it to take longer to heal post delivery. Be prepared, try to work with your doctor and keep those sugar levels in control or a big baby can cause delivery compluications, also i would advice to breast feed as this can protect your child from getting diabetes in adult life. hope this helps, get more medical advice and good luck to you both, god bless.
