WTT with Type 2 Diabetes


I was just wondering if anyone else is WTT with Type 2 Diabetes. DH and I are WTT until August. I've recently lost 41 lbs and hope to lose more before August. I was diagnosed in March with an A1C of 6.1 and have since brought it down and have average blood sugars less than 100. I do not take any medication. My control is strictly diet at the time. I know that good control is key to a healthy pregnancy, just wondering if anyone has any advice on the topic. Thanks!!!

Hiya, I don't have any advice as such as I don't have diabetes myself. But I didn't want to read and run.

My friend however also has type 2 which she controls via her diet and once she fell pregnant she was put under consultant care just so they could keep a closer eye on her, and she was at higher risk of her baby developing gestational diabetes but she had a very healthy pregnancy and baby.

Good luck, I'm sure there will be others who can offer you great advice

I don't have it either but didn't want to read and run. My MIL does have it and manages to control it with diet. I think if you visited a nutrionist and got information about eating during pregnancy that would probably help.

I appreciate any advice I can get, especially if you know someone who is in the same situation that is helpful too. I'm hoping that since I'm able to control it myself through diet I will have a lower chance of complications. I rarely have blood sugars over 100 which of course will lower complications. I'm just worried that once I get a BFP my blood sugars will go crazy or something I guess. Anyways, thanks for the comments so far ladies!!!

Being pregnant should change your body a bit alright but if you are aware now that you may have a problem then you will be extra alert and be able to catch it in time. Get advice from a good nutrionist about diabetes and pregnancy.
