Hi is anyone type 1 and expecting? I have recently found out we are expecting for the 2nd time. Would like to hear how other type 1's are getting on as all I have seen is gestational diabetes x
Hi Pinkbump, I was trawling the boards looking for a type 1 buddy. I have only just found out I am pregnant (I am 4.5 weeks).
I have had diabetes since I was 4, so almost 24 years now. I generally do pretty well and have no complications but the last week or so I have become incredibly insulin resistant. I thought the first few weeks were supposed to be low bsl's! The highs have been a real shock and made me feel so guilty. My specialist sent me a script for metformin yesterday, to help with the resistance, so I will start that tonight.
How have you been feeling?
Are you on a pump or MDI? And how long have you had type 1?
I got diabetes 15 years ago aged 10. I found my first few weeks awful trying to get control lots of lows and highs. My first bs of the day is always the worst it's going mad overnight
I don't have a pump but it was mentioned at my first appt (second next week) so I may eventually have to have one. Do you have a pump? Also my control before getting pregnant wasn't great but managing a lot better now.
How ate you feeling in general? An was your pregnancy planned? X
Oh u know that feeling my fingertips have been pricked so many times. An I was only asking if your pregnancy was planned to see if you had been getting any help getting ur a1c to a good number and also did u start your folic acid whilst ttc?
I felt fine until a week or 2 ago an constantly feeling nauseas hope it subsides as I was sick the whole way through my last pregnancy. Also not 100% sure how far I am as not had a scan yet. Lmp means I'm 12w1d but I have a longer cycle so I think I'm around what my ticker says. Will find out on Wednesday though
Teenpreg how far do you think you are? Also I see you had your 1st by emergency c section. Same happened to me can I ask why? An how far did you get in your pregnancy? My dd was born at 36 weeks x
I think I'm 4 weeks 4 days but doctor is sending for a dating scan as I haven't had a period since I had the coil out in July :-) i was 36 weeks also he wasn't moving much so went to the hospital and I was having contractions and his heart rate was low so I went in for a c section then! How come your LO was born by c section? Did she have to have any help when she was born? I really would like to have a natural birth this time! Good luck in your scan Wednesday! :-) x
I went into hospital for steroid injections as I was going to get induced a few days later but her heart rate dropped so they delivered her straight away. She was in special care for 5 days with her blood sugars and also under lights for jaundice. How about your lil one? What was the birth weight aswell? Did they tell you to expect a bigger baby?
I don't know what to expect this time last time it was so rushed but I will discuss birth options with them at 20 week appt I think they said x
He was in for 2 days for the same reasons then up on ward with me for 3; he was 9.7lbs! How much did your LO weigh? I knew he would be big but didn't think that big! I did it with mdi last time but now I'm on the pump so I'm hoping it might be a bit easier as I always hated mdi pregnant or not! X
She was 7lbs exactly. I'm just scared as if you are induced a lot of them end up in a c section anyway. My sickness kicked in this Mornin aswell but my sugars where high hate that I can't control them overnight I hope that the baby is ok! They are ok through the day but at night they just go mad. Last time I was having hypos while asleep an they were high but this time I'm not so sure x
