After a few early losses and wacko cycles I was diagnosed with diabetes and pcos about 4 weeks ago. Started with metformin 1500mg per day.
Yesterday I did a hpt because it's about 9 weeks since my last AF...and we're pregnant!
Now I'm a bit scared after I phoned my doct and he said I must start with insulin and that high sugar levels are dangerous for fetal development.
Google doesn't help me much....
Any advice on how to keep my blood sugar levels low??
What is the cost of the insulin...isn't it very expensive?
It's already late friday afternoon here, so I'll have to wait till monday to see the doct and get some answers.
I can't answer the cost question as we get it free in the UK. As for keeping your sugars down try and make sure that you make sure you have more protein than carbs....though you must have carbs. However there will be some foods that should be safe that will make your sugars spike.....everyone is different. The only way to know this is by testing your sugars after you eat....in the uk we test an hr after eating. And the obvious is cutting out sugar itself.
I was still coping with the fact that I'm diabetic...so did not even think about ttc.
And the best is I don't even know when or how this could've happened because we only DTD once this past month so I guess I'm about 5 weeks pregnant but it may be longer....
