I am very happy about this, but my blood sugar levels were not well-controlled beforehand; my A1C was 7.3 when I found out I was pregnant. I use an insulin pump. I am worried about my baby having a birth defect, about having a miscarriage, or him or her being born as stillborn.
Since I found out I was pregnant, I am getting my blood sugars under better control. Sometimes it is very difficult for me, as occasionally I get crazy cravings, but I know that I can do it, and my baby will thank me for it! I am considering going on a low carb diet to reduce my need for insulin, but I am not sure I would have enough energy on that sort of diet to last me through the day.
Anyone else in the same boat or know someone who is? This certainly is a test of my self-discipline, and my faith. Thank you so much View Thread
